This Week in Milford

Attention punks. Look out for Ben Franklin in a Hawaiian shirt. If you step to him, he will WUD you. Then he will THUD you and WHACK you. You have been warned, punks.

This is pretty much the most awesome Gil Thorp since…yesterday!  One might conclude that Pop really enjoys bringing the pain. Can we do this all summer? Can we just follow Pop and son around and watch rude miscreants get slapped around in public setting? Please? Pop could be the Larry David of kicking ass.

What the hell is that one defeated punk draped over in panel 3?



  1. That uppercut must have extended the blonde daft punk’s abdomen like a bendy straw. Got him doing a downward facing dog pose- apparently through a wall. Wish we could have seen him mangle the other one’s hand.

  3. I’d like to imagine that the ‘whack’ is the sound of the Subwich worker smacking her gob in shock at the violent shattering of bones and tearing of tendons.

    Regardless, it has long been acknowledged by public safety researchers that the cycle of pop-on-bro violence in tank towns like Milford is nearly impossible to break; to which I say, amen!

  4. I’m not a fan of violence, honest– I can’t bring myself to watch gory movies– but this is different. The idea of a couple of rude, self-important punks getting the shock of their lives– utter bone-cracking demolition at the hands of an old guy who probably served with the 3rd Marines on Okinawa and learned from Mr Miyagi himself– sends me into howls of laughter. These two strips are the scenes of the year…

  5. “I guess those boys didn’t realize the Subwich Special of the Month is the Knuckle Subwich — two for the price of one!”

  6. Just realized why the Sub Standard has disappeared to be replaced by the Subwich. There is no way the last two days of mayhem could have happened in a substandard place. I have no idea what Pop’s son Ahab has to do with this (but I do suspect that next door at the bank, he has engaged a rude customer and is “teaching him some manners.”) Hoping this all augurs the end of summer golf plots and the beginning of something new and weird.

  8. Maybe this dude is the Wilford Brimley character from the Cocoon movie.

  9. 7/1.

    Harry looks like someone who came from a restroom with no towels or dryer.
    That’s not the open-handed gesture you make along with”WTF?!”
    Has Whigham ever observed real people? The kind with hands.
