Pandemic comics: fleeing in fumetti

Weird micro-memoir about a family fleeing NYC for Texas during the pandemic by Mira Jacobs at the New York Times. Not only is there no reflection or emotion within the piece about their circumstances, Jacobs boggles at other people getting petrol at a local gas station for five minutes – “Don’t they know?” – when she’s spending a whole week travelling across the continent and coming into contact with dozens of people.
