This Week in Milford

Bob Roth’s Room (?)

September 8, 2015


It sure would be useful to find out who Bob Roth is. Actually, I just did and it wasn’t that useful. Regardless, after the deadly dull summer plot, I still have hopes that this fall’s plot, with Marty’s drinking and the return (?) of Holly Dobbs, delivers the goods. We’ve already got amateur sleuth Coach Kaz investigating with his sunglasses perched on his head (or do we? what happened between panels two and three?) so I just hope all of this buildup takes us someplace both great and surreal.



  1. Kaz lost his sun glasses between panel 2 and panel 3…

  3. Kaz’ sunglasses ejected upon the sudden appearance of the freak hand in panel 3. Unfortunately, the framing doesn’t allow us to see the specs spinning off into the hallway.

  4. I think she shot Kaz’s glasses off with her finger pistol. Pew! Pew!

  5. Nostalgia Gil-ore! Yesterday he was missing the pads, today he pines for the filmstrip projectors of yore. Tomorrow, well, Holly rubs his nose in it (and posts the Vine).

  6. As Downpuppy mentioned yesterday, Bob Roth is/was Milford High’s English teacher. He conspired with Gil to have Cully Vale kill Marty Moon.

    Roth has been mentioned a couple of other times as well in recent years, usually when students make reference to “Mr. Roth’s class” or something to that effect. He also won the faculty NCAA Basketball Tournament pool back in 2005, and Gil used him as an example to justify not punishing several of his baseball players after they were arrested for playing poker.

  9. Welcome back Holly! No need to thank me for the bullseye spot. Back to lurking. ;)

  10. Good work, Son of Jack B. The strip you linked to the other day was fantastic.

  12. I have an awful feeling that Holly Wood, disillusioned with roles such as “second girl in hot tub scene,” is returning to Mfnrd to teach film. Will this produce an assumed triangle with Gil and Marty Moonstruck? Will Holly, disillusioned that Marty is sozzled 24/7, turn to Gil for advice, with the publicity drawing attention to the fact the Thorp kids are “missing?” The set up to this plot (especially after the long summer nap) reminds me of the break shot in a game of eight ball…
