Pirate Mike Confronts Reality!

This one was me wanting to draw Mike in a position of rage, but it kind of turned into him in a position of, I don’t know, despair? Funny how often a drawing of rage can devolve into one of despair. Not sure if it works both ways. And, as usual, getting that third panel eluded me here, but I’ve managed to have a few people say they like the wife’s response. I do have a mismatch in my head, though, in the transition from the first panel to the second panel, so I’m still not really crazy about this one.
