This Week in Milford

March 16, 2019

In Kaz We Trust, kinda

gt03162019

Don’t look now, y’all, but I think Rollen Stewart has broken out of jail!  He left his sign next to Kaz and David Walter and is on the lam.

Between the close talking, face and shoulder touching and Kaz’s uncomfortable leer, I’d say Kaz and Gil have been noticing David pretty hard so far.  Let’s hope it’s only ground balls that hit him in the face.

Today’s strip doesn’t advance the plot much, but it does raise the possibility that we finally get a scrappy athlete who’s not a complete self-absorbed douchebag.  Is that too much to hope for?

  1. “We notice. Trust me, Mike Fillion was dogging it on the court because he was sad or something and old Gil and Rick Scott got him all squared away with the latest in EST faster than a Milford playdown run.”

  2. I have absolutely no idea what’s being introduced here, unless this is foreshadowing of an infielder taking a line drive to the head.

    What do we know so far… Mimi’s infield is solid in the middle, and we have a “scrappy kid” on the left side of the boys’ team. Whigrub may have become alarmed at the timely start of baseball and softball (which we often don’t see at all) and thrown out the sea-anchor.

  3. I’m going to mildly disagree, vaganova. Rubin has introduced three new characters – not bad for one week. I’ve noticed he frequently gets off to a decent start, but the pacing problems start showing up around week four. We’ll see what he does with this.
    And a side comment: he could have used one panel to at least mention concussion protocol on a player hit in the face with a baseball.

  5. Philip, I can’t disagree about the speedy introduction of characters. I think I’m just kind of stumped over where this all might go, which is not Whigrub’s fault.

  6. Where will it go? Of course that’s Whigrub’s fault!! The only story pattern they know is to hold back stuff for the ever disappointing “”Big Reveal” at the end.
    There are other ways to tell a story!!!!!!

  7. “Keep getting hit in the face with ground balls?”

    Well, yeah, kid. I used to get hit in the head all the time when I was playing… uh… you know, that game with the pointy ball? And the field with stripes on it? Eh, never mind. The point is, just look at me today!”

  8. @jayvalt – “you seem to keep taking balls to the face kid…we’ve noticed”
