What Lies Beneath

Yesterday's Cul de Sac had some synchronicity with yesterday's Almanac cartoon, like they were almost the same joke. I didn't plan it that way, unless it was subconsciously, and when I realized they'd meshed I was a little tickled. Embarrassed too, because now it's obvious I've got only a few ideas in rotation and here they've collided.



The Almanac (above) was a retooling of one from 8 or 9 years ago (below). I didn't find the older one till a day after I turned in the newer version, though you can tell I remembered it pretty vividly. I might try doing newruns of old stuff and hope nobobdy recalls them distinctly enough to complain; I'll just white-out dated references and such to make it more germane.

I noticed it, and thought it was pretty funny. It was like a tie-in just for Post readers.

I LOVE that you included the 17-year cicadas and Bugs Bunny's route to Pizmo beach! Awesome!

I loved both these cartoons and they reminded me of a book I read once about Underground London. Not just the Tube, but the secret tunnels, the creaking Victorian sewage system, the post office chutes. Fascinating and nearly as interesting as the fiction.

I expect soon we will see Lio reading a "Petey" comic book...
