Swipe File: Kris Mukai’s Commuter and a real woman with a subway pole in her butt

While there were more great comics than you could count at this weekend’s MoCCA Fest one that got a little notice was Kris Mukai’s Commuter (available for sale here) which captures real life moments of subway horror (rats, puke, bums, vandals, peoples selling batteries, mariachi bands) in comics form.

And lest you think she made the whole thing up, here’s a photo posted today on NY Magazine’s Daily Intelligencer blog that shows that THE TRUTH IS MORE HORRIFYING THAN ANY FICTION

This is why I use gloves on the subway even in summer. Do not touch!

At the same time, you need to admire the strength of the grip of that woman’s butt cheeks.
