Yeah, maybe. But in 20 years I’ll either be dead or (more of) a cyborg. I’m gonna re-integrate w/ my peeps asap. Though the ‘P’ part may be kind of problematic if THEY aren’t ready.
Panel 4:Adult cicadas can’t eat.
One nit. Cicadas don’t eat once emerged. They fly, make noise, lay eggs, and die. No eating. No biting. No stinging. And edible.
Artistic license, y’all.
I like the drawings, but it’s LIE low. I remember the lyrics of Bobby Bloom’s “Montego Bay” when he says “I lay on the lie-low” I want to tell him (late 1970, died in 1972) it’s “I LIE on the lie-low”. Why do you think it’s called a “lie-low”?
It’s not lost on me, Mr. McFadden! Cicadas emerging as we emerge from the pandemic. As Broomhilda aka Dani Rice says above, artistic license! Great art!!
And constantly screaming.
Excellent parallel, Brian! This is exactly how I’ve been feeling!
