I think I was emboldened by #35, in which I duplicated a panel, and no one said anything. No one called me a cheater, or anything. The reason why, I guess was that half the online comic community was doing it, and everyone was pretty used to it by then. So emboldened by that, I used the same panel THREE TIMES in the same strip. I wish someone had called me on my laziness before I did the completely shameless #84 or #102.
I recall getting a lot of good response on this strip, which was something I needed due to the silence I received about #38. This is really the point where the Mike thread really took off on it’s own, and I called the thread Mike’s Left Hand, after the Daniel Day-Lewis film “My Left Foot”.
