Tue, 09/07/2010 - 22:25 by Ananth in response to ananth showers with his hat

It's a sauna down there, and showering becomes a moot point once you're down on the platform. New York has an extensive subway system, which is great, but it's also old, so it wasn't constructed with maximum ventilation in mind. It's usually worth it to wait till you come home to shower, but that's just me. 

We have two copies of our book!! Here they are,

Say it with me now: YESSSSSSS! John will take some better pictures for the next update! See you then!

Subway Blues

I know how you feel. I'm always begging for the incoming train to cause a gust of wind to cool me off just for a moment of relief. D:

The subways in LA though are

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Tue, 09/07/2010 - 23:57

The subways in LA though are enormous and the weather is always pleasant, its a wonder the transit system in LA isn't as extensive in NY when its so much bigger here and you really need it to get anywhere if you don't have a car. I just moved out of the tri-state and I can recall your pain having traversed those subways oh so many times carrying oh so heavy groceries on the more than packed 6 trains.

also yaaaay books!

Subways

Comment by toutomoutochan (not verified) Wed, 09/08/2010 - 00:05

According to my father, before trains were air conditioned, the subway stations were cool (because they're underground). The trains were hot, though.

It's because the air conditioners exhaust a lot of hot air that the stations are now so warm.

Whoa! That's really

Comment by Ananth Wed, 09/08/2010 - 10:22

Whoa! That's really interesting, thanks for the trivia. I've learned something new!

This is VERY true. If you

This is VERY true. If you ever find yourself walking just above the 4, 5, 6 trains @ Union Square... well I hope you are wearing fireproof underwear.

BOOKY BOOK!

Comment by Corteks (not verified) Wed, 09/08/2010 - 00:05

LoL I live in Australia so I know how heat can be. We're coming up soon to summer and I have no aircon, so it'll be just like this while hanging around my own house LoL. Humid days are even worse for it :/

Anyway, when can we purchase these books?! I needs me one plus some bookmarks! ^________^

The books will be online

Comment by Ananth Wed, 09/08/2010 - 10:22

The books will be online towards the end of this month! They debut at SPX and will be available online about a week after that.

The people on the train reminded me of the 'spirits' on the train in Spirited Away.

Love that movie!

As much as I hate the heat, I still envy you now, it's less then 60°F here and we didn't have much sun this summer. Just rain and floods D:

I'd love to support you guys. Whether that means following you around with a little fan or buying your book, I'm down. Will they be available at the New York Comic Con/will you even be attending?

We'll be walking around NYCC

We'll be walking around NYCC ... we're looking into getting a table. Hopefully it'll happen!

Icebat knows how to beat the heat.

Also, LOVING the book cover. I will have to start setting aside some monies for it now I think.

I also hope you guys get a table at NYCC. That or I just see you there randomly. What ever works, you know?

WANT. NOW. (Or at least, you know, sometime soon.)

Been an avid reader of the comic for over a year now, and I'm continually loving it. Can't wait to have a copy on my bookshelf ... which I hope will not meet the same fate as your last one. =X

Comment by Ananth Wed, 09/08/2010 - 19:46

Old wives tale! Presumably because a lot of balding men wear hats. I'm just light-sensitive.

Showers?
Don't you mean shower?
Hurhurhur

Oh, yay!

Comment by Jenasaur (not verified) Wed, 09/08/2010 - 20:40

The book looks fantastic, and I shall certainly purchase one (or two, or three as gifts). Congrats on a job well done!

I started reading your comic when I was living in Germany, and I must say that the light-hearted, offbeat stories really lifted my spirits when I was feeling particularly homesick. Many thanks to all of you at _Johnny Wander_ for providing a little bit of "home" to all parts of the globe.

Subway Fun 2.0

Comment by John Will Balsley (not verified) Wed, 09/08/2010 - 21:16

Man I know how that is, the L-trains in Chicago weren't too much better, but I think they did have better air conditioning usually. New York from the visits I had were pretty intense in the summer/ fall. Cool books you have printed as well, I'll be working on that soon myself.

Cheers!

yesssss

Comment by AmandaK (not verified) Wed, 09/08/2010 - 21:39

Woooo! So excited! CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK.

New Yorker here!

Comment by Kevin (not verified) Thu, 09/09/2010 - 01:07

The unbearably hot subway platforms let you appreciate the nice, cool, air conditioned subway cars even more! ;)

Also, the LIRR totally owns the subway! :D
