This Week in Milford

The story that wont end

Oh go ahead, Jay, check in with Dafne. Maybe you could also check in with your barber and cut off some of that hair. After all, its been summer for a week, and your not only still in school, Dafne is wearing a Sweater,, and we’re no closer to the end of this then we were 3 weeks ago. Still dont know what she wrote; oh yeah, she hasnt written it yet. When will that be, the 4th of July? Will they let you out of school then?

And then we have P2. Jay will have to LIVE with Barry? Uh, first of all, he’s a teammate on a high school baseball team, not a live-in roommate. And players on high school teams only see each other at practice and games, plus on the bus on the road, but thats it. So his statement is bs. Plus when the hell is the season over with already? How much longer does Jay have to ‘live with’ Barry anyway?

I’m sure the janitors cant wait to start the between semester cleaning of the school. I know the floors are shiny as hell, but the rest needs attention only an empty school for 3 months can provide.

Anything else I’m not seeing or is this strip just an extension of what we already knew before Pelweki was worrying about launch angles?



  1. You nailed it, Rob. Pure Friday evening filler as far as the eye can see from Rubin and, except as noted with Jay’s hair, just serviceable artwork from the Chief.

  2. Rob and timbuys nail it, with this proviso, that Dafne absolutely does not have to write “what she heard and saw” about this story, because it isn’t one. It’s completely static and utterly non-newsworthy (not even the Enquirer would run a story addressing the question of “Why is Barely Such an Asshole?” Ms Rizk must be either drunk or drugged up to allow Dafne to pursue this.

  3. A few things –
    1. Yeah, they’ve wasted three panels again. Not the first time. No plot movement, no character revelation, no game action, nothing to see here.
    2. Last year, Rizk killed the Van Auken story, but this year? Not a single discouraging word. Not even “Is there really a story here?”
    3. I guess we can hope that Dafne will figure things out on her own and decide to withdraw the article.
    4. Now that we’re done with “hope”, I figure there’s two more weeks of this before the summer plot, and I don’t see any path to a satisfactory conclusion to either of these subplots.

  4. Sheesh, yet another kid who looks like Ernie from My Three Sons in close-up. Is Jay secretly Pirate Boy from basketball season?

  5. Is it a spoiler to note that by Saturday, Rubin is openly bored with this entire mess?

  6. Dude… It’s fucking June and Barry is a senior

  7. teenchy, I’m glad you mentioned that because I thought it WAS Ernie the P. But I forgot there’s more than one Marshall Crenshaw in the school. And both are going to the school that never ends. July and counting.
