This Week in Milford

Finding Marty

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, football, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon — teenchy @ 5:32 pm


Our airborne mystery woman* gets The Two-Thousand-Yard-Stare as she wonders if she’ll recognize Marty when she gets back to Milford. Will he still looka lika man? I think I’ve seen this one play out before:

More than once, even:


In case we’ve somehow forgotten, Gil’s Mudlarks have a state title to defend this fall. How do you think they’ll blow it? Wanna bet another one of Rubin’s trademarked teenage egotists is involved? Maybe, but any kid named after Ellen DeGeneres’ character in Finding Nemo is still too young to be playing varsity football.

*I’m sure the mystery woman is no mystery to some of you old coots longtime Gil Thorp readers out there. In the coming days I’ma havta lean on some of y’all for the backstory, or at least you can point me in the right direction.



  1. Can you say “Holly Dobbs”?

  2. Last year’s entire line graduated. These clowns will trip over their feet when they seen the rush coming. True is going to be planted chin deep in the sod first game.

  3. It looks like she’s dreading a reunion with Marty, but as any Pelican Airlines flight attendant could tell you, that’s nothing more than the “Oh f***, I’m going to Milford” stare. Every passenger on the plane looks just like that.

  5. Thanks for that, Son of Jack B! What an excellently drawn strip. I love the attention to background detail and the lettering, which reminds me of a neater version of that used in the current Gasoline Alley.

    Of course, I now have to wonder if the mystery woman is not Holly D but Daughter of Holly D…
