This week: ‘Disrespect’ … or 'Just Another Day on Public Transportation'

So, you may notices some changes with the comic going forward. They can be subtle (they're not) so I'll point them out to you in the regards of greater mutual understanding. First, you may see that I'm experimenting with color... duotones to be exact, to bring 30 Miles more in line with my other comic The Denver Bootleg (currently published weekly at the Denver Westword, though a couple can be found on my site. Blatant plug.). Also, I'm trying out my hand lettering skills. It's likely going to be a little rough for awhile until I get my 'sea legs' with that particular skill. I've only been doing it for a little while, but have been enjoying it as the lettering seems to bring everything together into one big ball of comic illustrated goodness.

Lastly, with this week's comic, I'm starting a new volume. Yep, the third 30 Miles collection starts right here (name eventually forthcoming). I hope to have it out by next summer, so I better be getting to it.

... and so ...  Three... Two... One... Musical Accompaniment! .... and GO!

The roots of the plant are used to produce a drink with sedative and anesthetic properties. Kava is consumed throughout the Pacific Ocean cultures of Polynesia, including Hawaii, Vanuatu, Melanesia and some parts of Micronesia. (See canoe plants.) Kava is sedating and is primarily consumed to relax without disrupting mental clarity. Its active ingredients are called kavalactones. A Cochrane Collaboration systematic review of its evidence concluded it was likely to be more effective than placebo at treating short-term social anxiety.[2]

... that said, there is a new kava place in the neighborhood. No alcohol. Just kava and a lot of bamboo. I mean, A LOT of bamboo. Cue the first panel...
