As Long As We Keep Getting Weepy, Drunk Marty In Every Strip, I Am More Than Willing To See Where This Goes

I like the mystery conversation carried over from yesterday so much that I’m willing to overlook the creepy mid-panel closeup. Every time I see one of those panels, I do a double take: sometimes the portrait is deeply uncanny and others, if you look too long, the facial features start to shift*.

But, seriously, who cares? Day two of Marty drinking his goatee crooked while soliloquizing is going great!

Bonus point: Red Label – Marty is a classier drunk than I gave him credit for.

* That may be the sleep deprivation though….



  1. Tell me that’s not the same closeup in panel 2 of a bob-haired brunette we’ve seen numerous times in Mark Trail.

  2. I think it may also resemble a few Sara Morgan closeups from Rex Morgan, M.D.

  3. Is this truly the long-awaited return of Marty’s sister, former Milford High guidance counselor Melinda Schmidt? We can only hope.

  4. That’s not Red Label. Marty’s at Red Lobster swilling the house brand.

  5. timbuys – you indeed know your Extra Special Old Highland Whisky. Upon close inspection, the foreground in P3 is indeed a bottle with the Striding Man. I really hope to see him swilling from the bottle by week’s end.

  6. I suspect that Marty has an old Red Label bottle that he keeps refilling with the cheap stuff. Desperately trying to convince himself that his life isn’t an utterly depressing waste.

  7. There’s only one big deal in Milford and her name is Marjie Ducey.

  8. Two days, two plots launched. Hollywood. Marty hitting the sauce. Not a school bus in sight. Seems promising. Could they find a way to feature Marty is a reality show? He’s got train wreck potential.
