DC subway doors are ... polite. They can sense if there's something in the way and will open back up to accommodate. NYC subway doors, on the other hand, are like the jaws of a cold, unfeeling beast. Here, Yuko has illustrated one such possibility in this scenario.
Poor Yuko has actually caught the worst of this ... she's had arms and wrists caught in the doors, and once they closed on her head (I had to pry them open as they actively tried to crush her D:).
It's actually not that scary once you get used to it, but ... be careful!
H-Hey guys! So we have internet again, that's cool. Actually, funny thing about that ... we got all hooked up, and everyone was really excited, and then 2 hours in, one by one, we all admitted that we had caught up on work e-mails and exhausted the entertainment value of the internet. We ended up doing other things like reading books and talking to each other, which I know sounds crazy, but please believe me when I say it is true. We also went to bed, which sounds even crazier and you don't have to believe me if you don't want to.
AHHHHHH we still don't have internet - sorry we couldn't reply to comments the last time around. There seems to be a notion that John and Conrad are dead and replaced! This is not the case at all. Conrad is still living with us, and John lives just 6 blocks away from us - we've actually been uploading the comics from his place until we get hooked up to sweet, sweet internet.
Poor John and Yuko. They actually came in a couple of times in the 2 weeks prior to move-in to make the place spotless, and then everyone came in and tromped around in shoes. Dammit! Oh, and thank you to the Front Row Crew and Yuko's parents, who showed up as a veritable moving army and helped us get done before noon. Unbelievable!
So sometimes you get your head in the game and you're just packing things like a machine and then you pack your packing supplies.
That's probably just me. Oh, as long as we're talking about me, I actually drew this one ... Yuko has been busy so I offer this sub-par rendition of Johnny Wander in her stead.
As we've seen before, Yuko occasionally gets mistaken for being younger than she is ... I was actually in the next room over packing up t-shirts when I heard this exchange, but this time it was an older guy and so we thought it worth chronicling! I think this is probably part of a series on Yuko being mistaken for things she's not, such as a boy. Yuko draws herself more boyish than she really is ... it baffles me that people make that mistake in our day-to-day lives.

If any one of them starts crying, they all start crying ... it was all wailing and gnashing of teeth on that plane. Some of it might've been mine, to be honest ... one of the babies had a cry of the exact frequency needed to drill a hole into my skull. Mutant?
We'll be at Connecticon! Conrad will be posting the relevant info in the sidebar tonight or tomorrow, but click through on the link and check it out. Hopefully we'll see you there! We will have some JW merch to sell!
Okay, so, to reiterate the last post and today's comic, we're having a JW meetup at SDCC from 1-2 PM on Sunday. There's info in the sidebar there. We're meeting directly outside the convention center building, between the Fedex and the Starbucks:
We also had a guest comic over at QC, if you missed it!
