The sequel to Cathy Hannah’s Springtime in Chicago is here! Chicago in The Fall collects daily comic strips Cathy drew about her life from September 1, 2016 through November 30, 2016. As the days get colder and the nights get longer, Cathy deals with a variety of stressful situations. Her cat, Salty has been diagnosed with Kidney failure, and is getting progressively weaker. Cathy’s been having a secret no-strings-attached relationship with someone at work, while trying to get over her feelings for another coworker. She’s also dealing with depression and anxiety.
There are good points as well, Cathy loves her cats, and has support from friends and family. Riding her bike, and skating at roller derby give her energy, and there’s always Taco Bell! These short vignettes imply a larger story, and never give the full picture, but they definitely illustrate a full and complicated life.
