Regarding the Frazz strip, Miss P. hasn’t even scratched the surface on how many things are wrong here.

Commando

Cidu Bill on Nov 15th 2017

Why would Connie possibly think that’s what the word means? And why would she think anybody could tell by looking at her that she wasn’t carrying a cell phone? And wouldn’t Jeremy be even more mortified than Walt by the thought?

I’m probably missing a few questions, but these will do for a start.

And this is one day removed from synchronicity with Luann’s Commando Tara story line (still ongoing, and possibly headed into uncomfortable territory if it means a return to Creepy Leslie and his mother issues).

The Fusco Brothers Go Arlo (and other stories)

Cidu Bill on Jul 1st 2017

BVCC sent this Fusco Brothers comic for the Arlo file:

The 4th-wall-breaking reference to how cartoon characters are drawn reminded me of this recent Wizard of Id comic:

rodney.GIF

Which in turn had reminded me of this CIDU:

Is this a meta joke about how, since Arlo’s nose is so cartoonishly large, the mask won’t fit over his face properly?

Personal Super-Synchroniciy

Cidu Bill on Jun 19th 2017

costume.GIF

A couple of days ago I found myself in the middle of a group of twenty-to-thirty people, all walking together to what I later realized was a Saturday evening showing of Wonder Woman at a monstrously-large London iMax: I counted two Jokers (both new-school), half a dozen Harley Quinns at various levels of sluttiness, two Spider-Men, a Captain America, and other various characters. Oddly enough, only one Wonder Woman.

Boise Ed sent in this bit of synchronicity, noting “And they’re adjacent in my alphabetically sorted list of comics.”

Everything old is…

Cidu Bill on Apr 4th 2017

everything-old-nancy-february1955.PNG

everything-old-f-minus.PNG

I don’t know whether I’d call it synchronicity, but these two comics (a Nancy from 1955 and today’s F-Minus) share a gag that seems to never, well, get old: “Kids today… they see something that’s from before their time, and they think it’s new.”

Of course, these aren’t the most egregious examples: we’ve all seen comics where kids are astounded by the existence of physical newspapers and books.

To know her is to… (synchronicity)

Cidu Bill on Apr 4th 2017

Christian: I’m not sure whether these published the same day, but I saw them the same day. And since the interwebs increasingly make that aspect of time more ambiguous than during the era of hardcopy newspapers, I’m gonna hope it counts.

Do you want to build a half-assed excuse for a snowman?

Cidu Bill on Mar 22nd 2017

Okay, we can’t really call it synchronicity since they appeared two months apart, but this at least deserves an honorable mention:

Why did there have to be…?

Cidu Bill on Jan 23rd 2017

These weren’t published on the same day, but Christian Schumann-Curtis saw them on the same day and come on, they certainly deserve some latitude in the synchronicity rules.

Self-referential gag about how their appearance hasn’t changed in 17 years??

EDITED TO ADD: And if that is the gag, I suppose we had some synchronicity today:
