TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3502:

As mentioned on my Facebook Fan Page, 'Michael D Hamersky On Comics', it's taken a little while for our home office to recover from the Thursday September 8th Blackout that occured in San Diego County & other parts of Southern California, (plus parts of Arizona & New Mexico!).

So I've been mainly offline the last few days, with no blog posts.  However, today I've finally got the wi-fi system back up and running, and did not want to miss mentioning this day of rememberance in the comics.

No, not the 'comic books', but the 'comic strips'.

I mentioned this then upcoming observance back last Sunday at my Facebook Fan Page.   It is the 'Cartoonists Remember 9 11' day in the Sunday newpapers, and also online, as I don't believe any newspaper will be carrying all of the comic strips that are participating in this observance.

I personally chose to feature the 'Beetle Bailey' strip here today, because that is the one that... 'got' me the most.

You can see the rest of the 93 comic strips in total at the special web site, 'Cartoonists Remember 9 11' here.  You can also view it as a slideshow.

There are several standouts in the strips that are participating in this observance, from comics I've known for years, plus others I had never heard of before... 

My thanks to those comics creators taking the time to observe this day, today...

It may seem a little 'odd' to observe this day in the 'comics' or the 'funnies', because it isn't that kind of casual observance, but after you read the strips, you'll see that this was a good idea for remembering what happened ten years ago today...
