This Week in Milford

March 2, 2016

While The Girls Keep Rolling


I’m not sure why we get two panels of Ken Brown sitting but that’s not nearly as disappointing as the very low res depiction of everyone’s favorite Milford Star reporter, Marjie Ducey, who is apparently not working on deadline this week.

Edited to add: What is that towel shrouded object in the foreground of panel one?


  1. Maybe the Milford Star is only printing weekly now.

  2. The POMO tag is not further explicated, so I assume the proof is left as an exercise to the reader. What are the odds that the device affixed to Ken’s leg is an Actron System Criminal Ankle Bracelet?

  3. Very possible Billy. The tank town I live in recently went to a weekly after many years being a daily. If I went to the local diner I’m sure I’d hear many complaints from older folks about how people don’t want to read the newspaper on the computer or iPhone. And I would agree. I remember when I could read Gil Thorp in the Chicago rag. But then, there was no TWIM. Progress baby!

  4. The mysterious object is especially mysterious this time as I cannot figure out what it is INTENDED to be, let alone what it actually looks like. The best I can do is Trainer Rick Scott’s old overcoat draped over a vertical length of I-beam. On the other hand, the dark vertical marks suggest distorted reflections of Scott and Ken Brown. When they updated the locker rooms, did Mfnrd perhaps save some money by buying up the mirrors from the funhouse that was being demolished?

  5. Wondering if we should be speculating about the plot function of Ken Brown’s injury, other than to simplify Gil’s life by keeping Mfnrd out of the playdowns. He’s the inside power man, and this raises the possibility that Kenzie will give his replacement a key tip, no doubt gleaned from rugby, since she is a novice basketballer (“The first few times you go up for a 50-50 rebound, accidentally give your opponent a shot to the liver and you’ll soon have the boards to yourself…”)
