EDIT!: For those of you who have yet to experience the glory of public transit, "transfers" are little tickets that you use to "transfer" between different vehicles within a certain time frame. That way, you don't have to pay for the bus to get to the subway, and then pay for the subway, and then pay for the next bus after you get off the subway... it just makes the commute that much less aggravating!

And in other news! San Diego Comic Con is ticking closer and closer! My brother Shagster and I will be in attendance and while we don't have our own table, we'll most likely be at the "Flight Anthology" booth (#2235) for hopefully more than a couple hours each day (I'll tweet about it once we're there). I say "hopefully" because there are tons of amazing artists and writers in Flight 7, and we might not all be able to cram into the table at the same time all day, but either way, I'll have some free limited-edition prints available at the table!


A small run of 4x6 art prints, and yes you did hear me correct when I said "free" :) And while I do appreciate that some of you would love to collect them all, because it's a small run I ask that you please only grab a couple, whichever prints you like best! If you swing by the table sunday afternoon and there are a bunch left, then for sure come grab some more!

I'm working on getting a Shrub Monkeys compilation 4x6 post card made as well, and Shagster and myself will each have a small batch of super top secret BUTTONS to give away, (you have to ask for em, we won't have them out in the open!)

I think that's all for now, AUGH so much to do before we leave!

I'm glad my transit agency eliminated transfers. Day passes are so much easier and simpler.

FLA doesn't have transfer tickets to my subways. :giggle: So I had to investigate to learn more about them :lol: Also, the time I was in cities with a subway, we just took subway & then walked/taxied everywhere. No buses. :) THE THINGS ONE LEARNS FROM COMICS! :w00t:

But great comic! :rofl: Haha...poor driver!

Transfer tickets? Huh.

Here in SA, South Australia (and, like, every other state I believe) we have 'time' tickets. I get a Day trip at 9am and I can continue using it until 4am the next day. It only costs $4.00. Then there is single trips, which you can use on any transport within the 2hrs time limit.

In Japan and South Korea, you can get a card that works like an ATM. You charge money to it and swipe it whenever you get on a bus, train, subway, and sometimes even taxis. It gives the transfer rates automatically, thus rendering your transfer tickets obsolete.

But this is still funny though :D
southstar Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010
Yeah, but America was founded on wasting trees, so obsolete it may be, it is also AMERICAN!

Is your sister an evil genius because it looked like she was having fun drowning the entire bus in transfer tickets.
stopthebus Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010

Reminds me of when I first got my public transportation card at the start of my trip to Montreal 3 weeks ago. I was all "WHOA, THIS WORKS EVERYWHERE? SWEEET!!" :icondurrhurrplz:

I also love how in the background of one panel there is an old guy with a lady waaay too young for him and two posters saying "BUY OUR CRAP" and "PEPSI MAKES U SEXY" :dummy:

I can't pick a favorite panel, the last few got me laughing hard though!
DevineCancerian Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010
Ah, the joy of transfers, how unbelievably useful and awesome. Except that I really hate the transfer system in Toronto, it's so much more inconveniencing than it needs to be.
Oriana-X-Myst Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010
Lucky!! We've signed up for Ccon but it's a 3 year waiting list to sell! ...Good luck!
Sobaku-no-Sarah Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010
We don't do transfers in NYC. We just have it recorded on our Metro Cards. CAUSE WE BE MAD COOL LIKE THAT. So yeah, it makes changing trains and buses a lot easier.
