This Week in Milford

July 26, 2014

Hello lamppost, what’cha knowing?

July 26, 2014


Well the high-speed collision between True and Gil I was so hoping for yesterday did not materialize. It would’ve been a good one, too, as we pan out to see a 7-foot-tall Gil emerge from a stonking big SUV of some kind (which looks like an amalgam of a Mitsubishi Montero and Nissan Armada with the front clip from an FJ62 Toyota Land Cruiser).

We’re left to guess what it was about Milford that drew True back. The Coffee Cantina’s Peaberry? A chance at running into Wendy Wiley or Molly Kinsella, who he’s seen so much of online? Surely it wasn’t that sentient lamppost that woman is waving to down the street.



  1. Wow can this arc move at any more of a glacial pace? Two days on a row of nothing happeningt advance the story line.

  3. Dang… I guess I vote malformed HTML. Oh well. So, did Gil’s playing hard-to-induce-into-offering–me-improper-benefits act cause True to beomce intrigued by the One Honest Man in the Valley Conference? Apparently so, as just about eveyron else in this strip has had no problem recognizing Milford for the tanktown that it is within five miles outside the city limits when they start to smell it.

  4. I like how True started this trip asking himself “How far to Hawaii?” and ultimately winds up in Milford, the exact opposite of Hawaii.

    I’m kinda hoping Gil has one of those classic 80s-early 90s Mitsubishi Montero’s with the “Urban Gorilla” spare tire cover…

  5. True, let’s talk. In here. They never card a young fellow if he’s with me.

  6. Monday: True stops in at the Swifti-Mart, buys a NutBoy, takes one bite, and realizes he cannot possibly live anywhere but Mfnfrd.

  7. In the 1950s advertisers tried something called “subliminal ads” in movie trailers, showing the words “Buy Popcorn,” for example, too briefly to register consciously but thinking a sales boom would result. It didn’t, but I wonder if Whigrub is hitting us with some parallel today. Panel 1: “bustling,” ironic or not. Panel 2: “Open,” and best of all Panel 3, depicting what looks like a group of happy drunks exiting PUB. How could Twue resist?
