Boo Radley, she of the ever-changing hairdo (and facial features, and dentition, and neckline, but whatevs – we can say that about just about everyone not named Gil Thorp in this strip, and sometimes even him, too) finds herself feeling harassed by those Central City Cretins (is that a new category?) and decides to take matters into her own hands. Her Exploding Wrist Syndrome will not bode well for her pitching but thankfully this scowling bouncer will keep it from getting worse.

Wasn’t everybody waiting for True to appear deus ex machina style to be Boo’s savior? Did we not pick up the context clue that True wasn’t going to the show with her? I suppose it’s not too late for him to show up; being at home while his mom and his once-helicoptering dad continue to have furious make-up sex has got to be getting kind of squicky.

  1. Looks like assault and battery by Boo. Didn’t see those dudes do anything.

  2. So either the Bionic Bouncer is 12 feet tall, or he’s standing halfway across the room. A room that’s supposedly full of ear-splitting rock, Mystic Pranks style.

    Of course, with a name like that, they might be an emo band pumping out a chill 32 decibels.

  3. I don’t think this confrontation is over. If Chekhov’s rule is in play (“The gun on the wall,”) then there is a reason we were shown the cretins seeing where Boo parked. I suspect they will be thrown out and will slash her tires or otherwise vandalize her car, she will call True to rescue her, and we will STILL see Chief Lind get involved somehow.
