Pirate Mike In Space!

Initially, this one had Mike and Al just floating in outer space with Al expressing regret at the banality of his thoughts while in outer space while Mike just floated off into the distance. Which perhaps I’ll still do someday. But then I went in the direction of Al saying something I think might also be the case. Of course, then the tv shows up and sends the strip into political waters which really work here for me. Drawing the characters in outer space with white outlines to make them stand out poses a challenge and I think that’s something I’ll want to work on again in the future.
