Webcomic / Mike: Bookseller

Go To

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

This comic contains examples of:


  • Benevolent Boss: Fab is smart, reasonable, and well-liked by his employees.
  • Mood Whiplash: In the space of one comic, no less. Essentially, "Hi everyone! Have some hot chocolate! Your store is closing and all of you will likely lose your jobs."
  • Verbal Tic:
    • Carol -hee hee- tends to do this -hee hee- whenever she -hee hee- talks.
    • Lark, you know, also tends to, you know, talk like this.
