Bonus points if you work out what hymn Tom is singing!

I has question: why not just keep that door open at all times?
(I guess there's probably a good reason for it but I know nothing of mines)

That's a great question! I've come across a few different reasons for it - the actions of opening and shutting the traps was supposed to help dissipate any clouds of gas deep in the mine, and if there was an explosion the closed doors were supposed to stop the blast. I'm not sure if either of those reasons worked in practice, but that was the thinking.

he's singing my favorite hymn!! I sing that almost every night! (He must've learned it at evening chapel.) That's a good boy, Tom, good taste. Now he's just gotta memorize the rest.

The coloring in this comic still just blows me away every time. :)

You got it! :D

And thanks, it's really tricky to know how to colour a pitch black hole in the ground!
