I’ve been on subway cars with all kinds of problems with their P.A. system. The worst is when you get into a subway car and the volume is so loud you can hear the dead static. Most of the time though it’s either really really quiet or so distorted everyone in the subway kind of turns to each other asking if the other knows what the hell was said. This comic actually was inspired by a particular car where the volume went up and down sporadically. I swear, with all our modern technology you’d think some of the simplest problems would’ve been solved first.

Here we can see that the subway actually has seats now which is a step towards the full subway scene of later comics. I still didn’t want to draw too much since the seats just end before they reach the frame. I also figured out a way to make his legs look better when he’s sitting down.
