By the time comics — with their six-week lead times and Eisenhower-era worldviews — get around to acknowledging hard times, it’s hard times. Let’s see how they’re taking it:
Rex Morgan, M.D., 10/11/11
The recession forced little Sarah Morgan to grow up fast — looks like she’s about thirty in panel three there. Rex sees it as his chance to regress, and turns his cap around like one of the Cool Teens. Pssst, Rex! Not Coors — Pabst!
Funky Winkerbean, 10/11/11
Ha, it’s funny because books are antiques. And the store owner got steamrolled by technology. And looks like Funky. Sucks to be you, Book Guy.
In hard times, it’s human nature to point the finger at something like the stock market — even when you lack human nature, or fingers.
La Cucaracha, 10/11/11
Big Peanut seems an unlikely villain, but OK. One quibble, though: for young and old, rich or poor, Spam® alone is Spam, absolute and irreducible.
Judge Parker, 10/11/11
And I think we know who’s really to blame.
