One of the rewards for backing the series on Patreon is the chance to appear as a character in the series. This week I got lucky and found out I was going to make a special appearance in the comic. I couldn't wait to see what kind of situation Mike would stick me in.
I love it!
Mostly because when an awkward situation comes up at work, I'm rarely witty enough to come up with a clever reply. So I just stare until the customer/coworker becomes hyperaware of the awkwardness and moves on. I knew nothing about the direction Mike would take the character sharing my name, so the fact that she (so far) aligns with her real-life counterpart is just great.
Go read Mike: Bookseller already! It's a great comic that updates several times a week and is always a lot of fun.
