This Week in Milford

I just discovered this amazing, hysterically funny blog. This Week in Milford. The blog's motto is "Writing about what's going on in Gil Thorpe's world because... well, you don't want to do it, right?"

This Week in Milford is for the Gil Thorpe obsessives out there.. and yes, they DO exist.

I always knew Gil was one of the most straight-laced strips out there, but what I didn't know is that the strip was, for a time, written by Jerry Jenkins, co-author of the "Left Behind" fundamentalist apocalypse adventure series... and that, during Jenkins tenure, the strip came under fire for story lines that were perceived by some as anti-Catholic. A pretty interesting controversy for one of the most lovably boring comics to ever see the printed page!

Gil Thorpe is written by a different team these days, and it's readership is dwindling - as are the comics in general. Enjoy it while you can.
