This Week in Milford

Seeing Chance Macy

Filed under: ?, Milford Idiots, Milford Weirdos, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 9:51 am


Chet and the only other party attendee willing to talk to him other than Chet’s wife are both creeps.

Panel 3 is amazing in so many ways, from the off-center lampshade to the multi-surface flooring right down to Chance’s socks, the details all count for so much and yet convey so little.

As is so often the case, we are left to simply ask What The Hell Is Going On Here?


  1. Chance is the only smart character in this strip. Chet is a dipshit….

  2. The part of Chet’s friend, aka other creepy dad, will be played by Andy Daly.

  3. Do you really think Chance is fending off girls nameless geek dad? Why would he fend them off? I’m sure all the girls will tell Chance on Monday they liked his article in the newspaperrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

  4. Chance is old school for sure….he still looks at porno mags rather than use the Internet

  5. And that geek dad says “Another day in paradise “ when someone at work asks him how’s it going. I made the mistake of asking someone how’s it going today at work and got that response for the 56,826 time. Dumb ass me for not just saying “Hey.”

  6. Oh wonderful. We’re shifting the emphasis from Sharp-Dressed-Man(where was his 3-lady entourage-spiking the Tostito’s Salsa Dip?)-cum-Overbearing-Sports-Parent-Who-Thinks-His-Son-Should-Be-Pinch-Hitting-For-Kirk-Gibson-In-The-88-Series to suddenly out of nowhere discovering Chance reads Little Lotta Comix when he’s not the hero on the gridiron. Two plots with no particular direction and it don’t take no collection. Sheesh, it is hoped THIS won’t join together(Hooligan ’til I die, Gang, I live for Townshend guitar leaps to the top of Milford’s gym).
    Wake me when he gets to the Charles Atlas section in the back(“The Incident That Made a Jerk out of Chet”-“I’ll kick your ass, Thorp, the next time you kick sand in Charlie’s face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”).

    Tim, thanks for covering. You da Man. Gang, give Tim respect. He’s earned it.

  7. Great flashback with Little Lotta, tdrew! I had to look up some Google images to fully refresh her appearance. Can you imagine the outrage in today’s “no fat shaming” world about a morbidly obese, surprisingly strong little girl cartoon character?

    One comic cover had the price 12c on it. I remember when comics were twelve cents, and our local grocery store had a vending machine for them, where it had a slot for coins you shoved in (like you might see on a laundromat dryer), one slot for a dime on one side, and two slots for pennies on the other. Little Me was confused and thought it meant I had a choice to either pay ten cents or two cents for the comic, so I asked my mom for two pennies so I could get a Casper. Thankfully we figured it out and I even think she gave me the extra dime so I could get the comic that shopping day in 1965.
