9/11 on the Comics Pages

For a few years after 9/11 it seemed like a majority of comic strips in the daily newspapers would commemorate he tragedy when September rolled around. It's been fourteen years now though and memories seem to be fading.

The Chicago Tribune and The Chicago Sun-Times are my two hometown newspapers and each of them features multiple pages of comic strips every day. It's entirely possible that these two papers publish a majority of the comic strips that are currently in syndication.

Yet I observed just two strips in these newspapers paying tribute to 9/11 this year.

Just two.

Here is The Wizard of Id by Jeff Parker.

And here is Dick Tracy by Joe Staton and Mike Curtis.
