Pirate Mike’s Sprite Fright!

This is possibly my favorite Pirate Mike strip of all time. I often struggle with thinking Mike needs to be a domestic humor strip, but then I would also like him to have non-domestic adventures. Sending Mike into the past via storytelling is just a new toy for me to play with and I think it’s going to let me do a lot of stuff I couldn’t do with Mike otherwise. Case in point: the sprites. These little monsters are my favorite. This is another sequence though where I think writing more ahead of time will allow me to better develop the strips. I was also able to meaningfully use a lot of different camera angles and a setting and close ups. Lots of fun.
