Our First Sighting of the Cystic Planks

I was going to do a poll to see which of the different rhyming names for the band was the most popular but it turned out that would take way more time researching than I have. Alas.

Meanwhile, the scene in Central City is getting no better than when last we visited it.

I’ve tagged these guys as cretins, but perhaps they are actually Clydes? Regardless, their apparent intent to assault a teenager in a crowded club, presumably one with bouncers of some sort, is quite in keeping with their previously demonstrated idiocy.


  1. Whoodathunk a teenage girl might find trouble at a midnight rock concert? Which presupposes that this is actually a rock concert; in a real rock show, you can’t carry on a conversation 10 feet away from the band.

  2. Lyrics from the Monkees theme song… a winning strategy for conversing with today’s young people.

  3. The only idiot thus far is Boo. Or maybe the C word or B word is more fitting. She needs to realize not every male she encounters is 120lb high school boy easily intimidated in a high school cafeteria.

  4. The only way this scene could actually work, and they could hear each other without shouting in to each other’s ears, is if the musicians on stage are Chuck E. Cheese-style animatronics, and they haven’t turned on the electricity yet.

  5. The Septic Tanks appear to be Joan Jett & Marty Moon.

  6. It’s not great judgment on Boo’s part but she is entirely in the right, not that will help if the two guys (two of “The Four Felons,” from The Jersey Boys) get rough. I do suspect either Kaz or True will materialize within two more strips. Or she may surprise us by throwing the first one to touch her through the bass drum: Whigrub saw our delight with Herk the Mauler and may be about to spring an other-gender reprise. On reflection, that is what I will hope for. Neither True nor Kaz can likely drive to Central City in time despite its central location, and only billytheskink knows all the shortcuts.

  7. […] rare “Central City Cretins” tag. You’d think Milford kids  would know by now to stay out of Central City but nope. Some brain surgery patient in a pea coat and yet another tonsure boy are gonna pick a […]
