This Week in Milford

The Continuing Story Of….All That Stuff You Just Saw

March 2, 2015

Relax, everybody. Take a breather. Let’s ease into March with a wash, rinse, repeat strip.

The girls are “breaking even” while Bobby is “breaking bad”. What exactly is Bobby delivering to Max? It looks like a couple dart flights, or is that supposed to be a baggie of some sort? Whatever he’s delivering, it is still producing sizzling, silhouetted results.



  1. Panle 2 is the album cover for the debut record of Milford’s 3rd most-popular local hip-hop act, The Harmacy featuring Pill Poppa and DozeAge.

  2. What’s the over/under on the number of panels until RoBob smiles again? If P2 is any clue, I’d say, oh, about ten thousand. Oh Bubby, it’s all going wrong…

  3. Thicker than water by Paul Gallico: A young boxer who never had ‘the heart’ to win when the going got tough receives a blood transfusion from his brave champion brother. Fueled by the knowledge his brother’s blood is coursing through his veins, he goes into the ring and defeats his heavily-favored opponent. At the end, it turns out he was lied to about the source of the blood, he did it all on his own.

    The Last Leaf by O. Henry: A little girl is in the hospital nearing death, she’s given up. Outside her window an autumn tree is shedding its leaves day by day, paralleling her demise. But one leaf miraculously stays on the tree, despite wind, rain and storms. The sight of the leaf gives her resolve and she survives! At the end, it turns out someone had painted a leaf on the wall behind the tree.

    Will Milford follow these short-story classics when Bacon learns his pills weren’t speed but sugar? Knowing the history of the strip, I’m betting he continues to play well after he finds out, but at the end, he slips on a puddle of sweat on the floor (that Bobby failed to clean up as he avoided his manager’s job once again) and breaks his arm — and Milford just misses the playdowns.

  4. C’mon, Rubin. “The girls’ season is a real scramble; but for Max Bacon, it’s over easy all the way.” Is that so hard?

  5. OK, there’s the time compression after the backdrop is set. Some form of complication will arrive tomorrow.
