This Week in Milford

Is This Your First Day Here?

Maxwell is confused? It seems I am too. For instance, Kenzie’s appearance in Milford is nearly Athenian in that she seems to have sprung fully formed onto the scene as a senior. When was her first day at Milford I wonder…

Regardless, I suppose that’s what is driving the plot for now. For what it’s worth, I have only the vaguest memories of my time in high school, but one thing I’m fairly sure of is that I had almost no interest whatsoever in what underclassmen thought or said about anything. I guess that is one of the many, many ways in which Maxwell and I are different.





  1. Where in the hell is this going? How about a little more attention to games during the basketball season than was paid to football.

  2. I (I alone?) take my satisfaction in ‘ku-spotting. You are all witness to a sad little game I play when the plot is weak sauce.

    What’s that about? It’s
    About high school, dude or is
    It your first day here?

  3. Impressive, g2design. Notice too that while Ken Brown is speaking mostly in iambs, Maxwell Bacon (who after spending last season as an attempted cheat, appears to be changing to an example of John Gardner’s “clown-victim”) leans toward anapests, the meter of limericks.

  4. “A confused Maxwell Bacon” has somehow gotten into his late teens without encountering the gender gap. Quaint.

    Note about Kenzie’s sudden appearance at Milford: there was a reference several days ago to her having taken classes while training and touring, which is normal for international-level athletes.

  5. […] much to say about today’s strip other than to note that the Athenian references are resonating for whatever […]
