Now we see the extent of the damage that Pop caused in the process of kicking the crap out of the punks. Wow! Did he actually manage to flip over a table that was bolted into the floor? (See mysterious object sticking up in the air in the upper right hand corner of panel 2.)
Wait just a minute! We’re cutting back to Gil and Mimi?? The Pop and Harry situation cannot be allowed to just sit there for weeks without a tie in to whatever Gil’s about to get up to. The amount of detail and panel space (and sheer violent awesomeness) demands that Pop remain front and center. Whoever is calling the Thorps better be telling them to just stay on the porch and sip their lemonade, because they will not be the prime movers of whatever plot is about to unfold.
