Pirate Mike Sacrifices For Love!

Here I start thinking about trying to do some four panel strips. Lately, I’ve been doing almost exclusively four panel strips. Part of this is my effort to more carefully consider my writing and it’s easier for me (still) to conceive of a strip in four panels. The real goal, of course, is to get to that fourth panel more effectively. I’m also hoping four panels will keep me from cluttering up individual panels too much. Of course, the real guide is “whatever works best,” but, in the meantime, I want to see what happens with the four-panel approach. For this one, I just really love the fourth panel. Mike looks so content! Even if he is a self-serving jerk here.
