This Week in Milford

Let the Baders Hit the Floor


If that’s not True Standish that’s True Standish’s body double laying into tonsured Barry. I’m honestly surprised that it took this long – that people didn’t start throwing abuse at him (for reason of Del’s first DUI, not simply his inane self-centeredness) even before he dissed Hang ’em Hiatt in front of her son.  The sins of the fathers blah blah blah and yakety schmackety…

Once again, a female Greek chorus and another fail of the Bechdel Test.  Who will Mother Bader crash into on the way to Milford High?

Special Guest Cameo: The role of Barry in P2 is being played by Dondi.



  1. Nice memory you have, bringing back Dondi. I remember feeling inadequate as a boy, reading Dondi’s adventures in the Sunday Chicago Tribune, wondering why I didn’t have heart-pounding, easily-resolved story lines like that in my own life. But those ears he had! i never wished for those.

  2. Also, I’m pretty sure that’s not True in p2, that’s someone who, if this were a movie, would probably be credited as “Hallway Thug #1”.

    Nice to see an appearance by the teenage version of Violet from Peanuts, using the same expression she always had when she was cussing out Charlie Brown (indeed, I believe there was at least one Peanuts strip where she chided “Yeah, what are you even doing here?!”)

  3. shows Violet just as she is in p2, with a very similar line.

  4. So the spring storyline has, what, ten strips left to go? None of these plot strands are going to be ended satisfactorily, and Boo’s death will be nothing more than a half-baked McGuffin.

  5. Mmmmm…love those half-baked McGuffins!

  6. Figuring that the creators have roughly 18 panels a week to advance the story and presuming they take some non-zero amount of time to plan out in advance how they will use those panels, there is an inexcusable amount of padding in this week’s run considering the events depicted last week.

  7. […] let’s heap physical and verbal abuse on the kid who had nothing to do with his father’s accident, then shun him, then repeat […]

  8. […] Bader is not making enough of a scene here. These rando Milford kids are young enough to not harbor outright hatred for Barry; if anything they’re more likely to think “Oh yeah, that’s the kid […]
