Pirate Mike Feels Pride!

Another one of my earliest pre-computer ones. At this point, I’m drawing the strip with a Pentel PocketBrush. They are awesome and I highly recommend them. I’m lettering the strip with it as well here. I felt a little bad about gramma keeling over here, but I try to tell people it doesn’t mean she’s dead. She might just have fainted! I also have a bonus panel for this one that I am going to thoroughly enjoy doing on the day I finally do it. And, yes, the spinach is a little nod to Popeye. I often wonder what the two of them would talk about if they met.
