Spanning that dreaded space between July 22 and August 22, this year's dog days of summer serve as a reminder of better times -- times when, for example, you could survive walking outside without one of those sweet Stillsuits from Dune?

With the star Sirius high in the sky and temperatures (and humidity) cranked up accordingly, the dog days can be absolute misery. Fortunately, misery loves company, and there's plenty to be had in comics highlighting the humor that accompanies so much seasonal suffering.

Weather your dog days with comics compatible with cosmic canine nomenclature.
