It’s okay, Charlie. You’d probably just end up getting pummeled by Mark Trail’s fists-o-justice in that strip.

Welcome Mark Trail Readers

August 29, 2019

Thanks to a shoutout on the Mark Trail message board, I may have a few new readers this week. Welcome! It helps if you’re a long time reader of Gil Thorp, but if you stick around, glad to have you. I’ve got a lot of long-time running gags that might not make sense if you don’t read the Gil Thorp message board, but it’s not that hard to pick up.

We like to rip on the missing Thorp children and dog, joke about the coaches’ infatuation with the Milford shower rooms, one of the commenter’s (Mr Reality) tendency to get run over a lot, Milford Trainer Jean-Luc Picard, Mimi’s secret affair with their Pool Boy, and super Milford alum and janitor Steve Luhm (that is me!) who never appears in the real strip anymore despite his all around awesomeness.

And yes, before you ask, I have no life. Anyway, hope you enjoy it! Today’s strip coming later this morning.

Every strip has its go to gag when stuck for an idea. Garfield hates Mondays. Dagwood crashes into the mailman. The Lockhorns wish death on each other. And I have poor little Kaylie.
