Today’s strip might seem a bit vague since we haven’t had a chance to speak about it much, but Mike’s service in the United States Navy kicks into high gear tomorrow, and he’ll be shipping out for six months at sea. Many jokes have been made between the two of us about the conspiracy involved in Mike’s deployment date being the day MoP releases, and the billions of dollars of equipment on his ship being converted into the world’s most expensive wi-fi hotspot, but the sad reality is that there are more important things afoot and I’ll be on my own until approximately next spring.

I have made promises not to run this comic strip into the ground while he’s gone. If you can help me in this regard, you will have both our thanks.
