I have no idea why, but when people read this comic out loud, Jack’s long line in the third panels always gets the biggest laugh. I didn’t even think it was funny when I wrote it, it’s just the truth about menial labor on the Strip. The first volume of Druid City really had some strong inspiration from the second volume of Scott Pilgrim, where the realities of being a poor-as-dirt young person are dealt with in the casual manner that young people normally deal with them.
There’s a small cameo in this restaurant scene by an Alabama rock legend. Psst, it’s the dude in the orange hat with the black hair.
