Keepin’ up with the kids
Gil Thorp, 10/11/17
One thing I appreciate about Gil Thorp is that it’s a strip about teenagers that goes to certain lengths to keep up with the cultural touchstones its teen characters would relate to, but not great lengths, if you follow me. It’s that kind of attitude that produces strips like today’s, in which someone bothered to figure out that golden-voiced Rick Soto would serenade his friends with a song from popular singer Ed Sheeran, but didn’t bother to determine what specific song that might be.
Meanwhile, nobody involved in the production of Blondie has any idea what an “app” is or how a person would go about buying one.
