This Week in Milford

March 16, 2016



Lesson learned: Do not get cross-wise with Kenzie. She will wreck you. I love cretin number two in mid-panel. The only thing funnier would be to see him scurry off to replace the spilled ciders.

Bonus points:

Is cretin number one’s dialogue an example of onomatopoeia? In any case, Kenzie towering over the guy and threatening more maxillofacial adjustment is great.

Also, the puddle of cider (assuming that’s not blood) is yet another nice touch in today’s strip.




  1. Well, next will come the inevitable relationship issues as Maxwell gets upset at Kenzie being ‘the man’ of the couple.

    It would be great if there was a real twist instead, like perhaps Maxwell being into S/M and getting Kenzie to beat him up as well, perhaps even getting a foursome together with the Cretins?

  2. Bonis points to Kenzie for delivering the elbow strike rather than a straight punch. Serious fighters know not to hit with their knuckles; that’s how you brk yr fngrs instead of the other guy’s jaw.

    And given Maxwell’s enlightened attitudes so far, I think he’ll be just fine with having a strong, capable girlfriend. Now, Tonsure Boy might get on his case, but Maxwell himself is secure in his masculinity.

    Coming next: Mimi suspends Kenzie for her act of violence and the girls’ team craps out of the postseason.

  3. Panel 1 confused me at first . Who’s the dude coming to rescue ? More confusion in panel 3. NYU…. Great school I hear. But what’s the gang slogan gibberish that follows? I’m sure the guy with his hands up is surrendering because he doesn’t want to hit a lady. Would he really back down from a dude who used a sneak attack elbow ? Would be toughs.

  4. I ‘spect that Maxwell will try to take the rap for the assault. By the time that gets worked out, both the basketball teams will be down in the Playouts & we’ll have a spring plot about Ultimate Frisbee.

  5. Wait – that’s not K-Z; it’s LAWN JOCKEY GIRL! Complete with pose-able arms and slouchy boots! Comes complete with Right Fist ‘o Mayhem!

    Hmm… does vanquished malfeasor have an “I’m a prison killer” teardrop tattoo? Uh-oh. Better run kids, better run NOW.

  6. OK, it’s official: I’m in love.

    No police involvement unless a cop witnessed it. The Cretins will not make a complaint, since most bullies are insecure cowards and making a complaint would involve admitting to being “decked by a girl.”

  7. The marquee in P3… I suck at Wheel of Fortune, so will someone else guess the name of the theater? I’ll spot you the “R” and “B”

  8. …my kingdom for an edit button…

    You’re in luck – I have one. Unfortunately, I don’t know what it would take to make comments editable by their writers.
