Hey, Kids! Unrelated Cicada Comics

I'm happy to hear that 13-year Cicadas are popping up in the South and Midwest, because coincidentally I just scanned some old Poor Almanacs. They all date from 2004, when the most recent infestation of the 17-year variety erupted in the East.
 And here's an early CdS with a cicada theme. it was redone for syndication and reused a month or so ago.  Who knew cicadas were such comedy goldmines? I hope they come back more often!

The subtly growing cicada one is brilliant.

Your Washington Post illustration for "Escapes" showed cicada at beach reading "17 Years of Solitude." Loved it!

Nothing to do with cicadas (wrong season for them here in Australia), and everything to do with hamsters (tasty all year 'round). Is Danders in any way inspired by Ignatius J. Reilly (A Confederacy of Dunces)?

Mr. Danders — a hamster, he says! I'm stunned.

A hamster, a guinea pig... Mr Danders has himself claimed to be a teacup pit bull and winnie the pooh.
