A Linebacker In Short Pants

Panel 1: I almost want to run the color version of today’s strip as the electric blue over black shirt under with tie look is quite a striking look on Kaz.

Oh yeah… Don’t even ask me what is going on with Kaz’s collar or how he knotted his tie.

Panel 2: Julius needs to layoff the Nutboyz and the Freezi Bombs if he wants to look good in those short pants.

Panel 3: Mike and Ken really should keep this thing to themselves rather than just blab on and on in the locker room. Their fixation on Aaron is starting to get rather unhealthy it seems…

Periodic Domination?

022117

Let’s leave aside the mysterious periodic relationship between Aaron, his mother and Milford basketball for a moment and get back to something we really haven’t talked about enough.

Someone needs to explain to me what the hell is going on with Aardvark’s hair because between panels one and two it is not at all clear to me where it is shorn nor where it has been left to grow out.

Bonus point: Panel two is pretty darn awesome. Not sure why it couldn’t have been done across the final two panels as the drawing of Marty doesn’t add anything.

McShanes Hardware – For All Your Escheresque Building Needs

021517

Folks, can we just mosey on past panels one and two? Thanks.

That brings us to McSHANES [sic], where we get a comparative bonanza of new information! Viz., Quad-A’s mother’s first name is Tina (not sure what street drugs that’s code for) and she’s in the back of a hardware store, which is presumably her place of employment.

Yesterday’s News Today

021417

Tomorrow’s strip is so frustrating that I’m posting it today (also I’m slammed at work tomorrow by which I mean today).

Bonus point: Love Ken’s sideburn styling.

Standard Odds

I’m sorry about missing yesterday’s post, folks, and am grateful to Rob for filling in on short notice!

I picked up on panel two being a flashback, but it wasn’t until the second or third time I read the strip that I noticed the beveled corners. Annnnd, that’s about all I have to say about today’s snoozer. Tune in tomorrow when we may or may not see the plot advance.

They Like Him In His Own Weird Way

020117

It’s good to see that Mike and Ken are back on the case! I couldn’t recall AaAa’s apple gag so I looked it up. The relevant strips were essentially a pre-hash of the story in today’s strip. I’m not entirely clear how serial apple larceny is an endearing quirk, but a lot of things about Milford similarly elude me. That said, going over the point a second time does little to move the plot along.

Indeed, it makes me wonder if perhaps we are in for a refresher on how Molly is ostensibly the name of some girl from Tilden and almost certainly not the street name of one of the many esoteric chemicals Quadruple A takes during his all night raves.

He Blows Like He Doesn’t Care

Filed under: ?, basketball, exposition comics, freak hands, Pissy faced Aaron — timbuys @ 9:10 am

That is stone cold, narration box. Our man quadruple A is just one member of the team who had an off night. Pretty sure the rest of the team has to take responsibility for their contributions to the outcome.

What oh what can possibly be written on AaAa’s t-shirt? I’m sure our commenters can come up with a few ideas.

Hey, what the heck happened in panel three? I thought Ken and Mike were our dynamic drug busting duo. I would really like to see the reference photo for the guy on the right’s hand. That meathook makes Chuck Bednarik look like a hand model.

This Is Going To Be The Most Awkward Intervention Ever.

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad — timbuys @ 6:50 am

012517

Panel two sure is carrying a lot of narrative weight, isn’t it?

Anyway, Molly isn’t a drug she’s a girl and AAAA’s mom is clearly another Rustbelt opioid addict.

Bonus points:

The risers on those bleachers look rather comfortable if impractical.

It’s nice to see Lampy from A3G picking up work.
