Mike: Bookseller is a gag-a-day webcomic written and drawn by Mike Lugaresi about working in retail. In this comic, Mike and his friends must survive stupid management, annoying co-workers, and of course, angry and unintelligent customers. Recurring characters include Mike's brother, Jason, {{benevolent boss}} Fab, the incredibly annoying Carol, and {{pointy haired boss}} Lark. Can be found at [[http://www.krrobar.com/ krrobar.com]]
