The above strip is from Boy on a Stick and Slither.
Reminds me of a conversation in J.G. Ballard's novel Super-Cannes:
"People are so immersed in their work they wouldn't recognize the end of the world. It explains why no one saw anything unusual about Greenwood. There's no civic sense here."
"There is." Halder pointed to a nearby surveillance camera. "Think of it as a new kind of togetherness."
