Pirate Mike Patiently Waits!

This one has probably been received the best of all my Pirate Mike strips. I’ve even received some very kind comments from cartoonists I really respect. It’s funny how sometimes the strips that get received the best are the ones that just kind of pop out of my head. The only question here that kind of vexed me was whether Mike would have a shopping cart or not. I didn’t know if people would get confused by Mike carrying bags _before_ checking out. I think initially Mike was commenting on reusable shopping bags, but I had to trim somewhere and out it went. So my editing has improved, I think, and that makes me happy.
