Hurry Up and Lose Already! Part Deux

Filed under: actual action, baseball, exposition comics, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon, Recycled art — teenchy @ 1:43 pm



Good grief, Whigrub, this is just so lazy – not unlike myself, recycling Thursday’s post title.

Valley Tech’s and Milford’s road uniforms look identical save for those Rorschach blobs on the batting helmets so you’d be forgiven for thinking this was all one game. That speeding Elrod ball at P1 lower right was supposed to be our segue, I guess?  Collin Lalonde channels his inner Rick Dempsey at Madison, unless he jammed his thumb on the base in which case he channels his inner Bryce Harper.

Finally we get recycled Gil with the hastily scrawled flat-bottomed collar over his t-shirt crew neck (if Milford’s on the road, wouldn’t manager Gil be wearing the same dark jersey as his players? Anyway, alert TWIMers will no doubt find the original) accosted by close talker Marty who looks Photoshopped on top of Gil. I believe Marty’s gonna tell him “a little club soda will get that out.” Give Whigham a smidgen of credit for choosing which of the many faces of Gil to recycle as that puss clearly reads “Oh no you di’n’t.”



  1. I edited out the date written above the comic for the last 2 days I didnt post, but I see its also on other days so I didnt bother fixing all of them. Since it already prints the date on top, no need to double-date in the future so to speak.

  2. My bad. Note to self not to include date at top of future posts.

  3. A showdown with the Jeffs (mascot wears a giant Family Circus Jeffy head) lurks just over the horizon. Meanwhile, if a girls’ softball team plays an entire season in the forest, does anybody hear?
