Pirate Mike’s Big Challenge!

This is another early one I redrew on the computer. It’s one I certainly like enough to keep using it. Other folks seem to like it a lot more than me, though, as I’d say this one of the more popular Pirate Mike strips. As my wife points out to me, Pirate Mike is at his funniest when he’s struggling with domestic issues. I’m not sure what makes this one in particular work so well, but it’s very silly and we should never underestimate the power of silly when it comes to getting a giggle. Initially, I wasn’t going to have the “and a worth foe she be” line, but I think that’s what does it here. It’s amazing how often a line I wasn’t going to include often becomes the part folks really like.
