This Week in Milford

August 18, 2016

A Jerk, A Murderer, A Canal – Panama.


You know who else is a kid, Gil?  This kid you’re using to do your dirty work.  He brought you a state title in football and brought some baseball scouts to your yard; the least you could do is let him off the hook to live his life.

Wait, what?  Rubin’s dragging Marty Moon into this ordeal?  WDIG’s put him on the police blotter beat now too?  Nothing like a meaningless week or two of shit stirring from Marty (inevitably concluding with some lame riposte from Gil) to drag an endless plot on even longer. Maybe Gil will dispatch True to deliver his pithy comeback to Marty’s crate.



  1. I try to run into him everyday. Gil should’ve tried to be a coach from day one. At least then he would’ve known what a cancer Bader was in the lockeroom. Bravo for True telling the truth.
    The kids a kid. People are people. So why should it be, Bader and the Mudlarks get along so awfully ?

  2. You think Barry’s got problems? Tall blond kid in panel 3 has his head on backwards.

  3. I’m a little less rough on Gil in this– True has been pretty much “another adult in the room” from the beginning, and it is natural Gil would include him in this. We read a few days ago that Gil talked to some of players about Barely Bader, but where is Capt Brown in this? Shouldn’t Gil be leaning on him to set his personal resentments aside and exercise some appropriate leadership?

    But the entire goal is elusive. The team has to understand Barely is in no way responsible for the crash, and Barely has to understand that by being an asshole, he makes it almost impossible for his teammates to accept him. Not easy. I do hope Wake Forest does not pull True’s scholarship for missing the first weeks of football. Here in New York, where the high schools open the day after Labor Day, the football teams have already been practicing for a week.

  6. While I would prefer to end this story outright, I’m fine seeing what Moon can do with it. Can he really do anything worse than Gil, True, and the Bader Bunch?

  7. That might be a valid point – with Marty in the prayer chain, has every major player now been woven into this story arc? Is there no one without taint?

  8. I wish we would get a strip or two of Gil being called on his passive aggressive BS.
