Banal Attraction


We’re still doing this thing, folks. It is, in its own fashion, moving full speed ahead.

Whose right hand is that in panel one? Holly’s? Marty’s? E.T.’s?

Google cannot seem to tell me who Trish Spanos is so I will assume she is a FOW (friend of Whigrub).  Let’s be real here, though.  Panel two’s entire purpose is to let us know that True and Trish have the same initials. Kismet?  Perhaps.

Closing things off in panel three, what is that object partially occluded by True’s speech bubble?  Is it the book he was holding in panel two? A chair in the middle of the hallway?

Obviously a lot of questions today from a strip in which not a whole lot actually happened. Hopefully our devoted little community here can shed some light.



  1. Looks like Trish Spanos works in the marketing department at WGN-TV. I’m thinking Rubin met her at a media conference. She’s quite the looker, and definitely resembles her cartoon doppelganger in panel 2.

  2. If this ends with Marty drunk, alone, bound, gagged and pantsless in a cheap motel room, I will be a happy camper.

  3. Mr. J.S.Walters: I’m with you, but only if he’s in a bathtub full of ice and missing his kidneys.

    Was that too dark?

  4. I’m much further away from being a high school student than I would like to admit, so I have little idea how things are these days, but does no one use backpacks anymore? Even with lockers, pretty much everyone I went to high school with carried some type of backpack or bag for writing utensils and other paraphernalia.

  5. Definitely dark, g2, but dark is all I can see for this IRREMEDIABLY MORONIC PLOT. But the fact the boy producer has enlisted Trish Spanos to complicate things for True does provide just a glimmer of hope. We have not seen Boo in months, which is criminal, but the idiot producer’s meddling may bring her back, even if just to kick the producer in the balls. That would redeem this entire digression into an alternate universe in which a school can enter a commercial contract with a network which involves signing away the rights of minors.

  6. I must be further than you Billy because hardly anyone used backpacks when I was in high school. But yes, kids still
    do today.

  8. […] the highly improbable TV show and its associated hilarious hijinks. We really don’t know all that much about Trish other than that she doesn’t even rate a meeting with Alan but instead is easily […]

  9. […] True in P3? And, by “spending a lot of time with,” he means “seen talking in the hallway with twice”?  Okay, […]
