This blog covers Mary Worth. That strip has been lame ever since Aldo Kelrast died, but the last month wasn’t bad. It was a tale about how lust for vengeance ruined a man’s life. It was almost Shakespearean.

This time, it’s Josh Fruhlinger who brings our attention to today’s Slylock Fox.
Ha ha, it’s a trick question! There’s no such thing as “valuable” Kansas City Royals memorabilia.
I guess this used UL Washington toothpick I’ve encased* in glass is worthless.
* I originally wrote “enclased” here. My guess is that I was thinking of enclosed and encased at the same time and snigletized them.
This time it’s Doonesbury. Doesn’t Trudeau know that Arod is an overrated choker? Or does he secretly read saberist propaganda?
Another Comics Mockage Blog. That girl almost poked my eye out! This Week In Milford tackles Gil Thorp. Sports and the funny pages are two great tastes that taste great together; usually. But this strip has been lame this summer. Needs more Coach Kaz for sure!
Witness this Pluggers strip as captured in The Comics Curmudgeon. I don’t know if Gary Brookins is from Texas but Reed Hoover is from the Metroplex. Did Hoover suggest the dialogue as well as the clip joint punchline? My guess is that he did. Also, I thought it was “The Ryan Express” after this movie and not merely “The Express.”
If you drill down to the posts, you’ll see (possibly) related posts. Here’s one on how Funky Winkerbean may be the funny pages most interesting failure. It echos some thoughts of mine that I haven’t put into words yet. Reminds me of my film studies teacher at MCC praising Woody Allen because he was willing to experiment instead of surrendering to the straitjacket of conventional movie-making.
Geeze, Louise. I couldn’t come up with worse dialogue than this drivel if I tried. Killer shark issues?
Milford must have had a ton of snow days because summer vacation is just starting now. I must say that the Occurrence at Funky Winkerbean Bridge is more interesting than this story about an alt-country pitcher who slightly resembles Tim Lincecum, but Batiuk moves as slow as an appellate judge. The writers at Gil Thorp Enterprise pace their stuff marginally quicker. Hopefully, Clambake or Von Haney show up in the annual summer story.
Trivia time: Do you know who the head coach/protagonist in this strip was named after? Once again, I am offering a ham sandwich to the first correct caller.
