There’s a whole lot of pain there.
That poor kid. That’s all I have to say….
So far Dad’s crushed concert-going, ice capades, and now wrestling. What will these kids do for entertainment? Video games?
I hope this goes into next week, because it’s a pretty bleak ending.
Kevin adjusts well to reality.
What, no! Wrestling isn’t fake! You take that back, Kevin!
Can Miles’s dad take them?
Please don’t cry, Kevin.
The sadness continues!
Dissapointment builds character, I’ve heard. And sometimes leads to a surprise ending.
Still the best comic out there
Even if someone else takes them, Kevin’s feelings for his father have been irrevocably damaged. Sad.
Fake but entertaining: if you are 12.
The end of innocence.
Oh, Kevin. Been there, man. <3
And look at Miles. He’s hurting for his friend. :(
Having a “No Show Dad” has to hurt. But Kyle being right just adds salt to the wound.
Wait, since when did he even have a job? Didn’t he collect disability and repair old landmines as a paying hobby?Okay, maybe he picked up something since the divorce, but still.Y’know, I’m not a parent, and I get that there are difficulties that someone outside that position will never understand. I know.But it sounds like he just doesn’t want to bother taking his kids to stuff, and has the audacity to make promises that he should know by now he won’t keep. (Once is an accident. Twice is unlucky. Three times is a pattern, and this man fails at life.)
Know a couple guys like the dad… One, I think, is a sadist who enjoys inflicting pain. The other I regard as a well-intentioned incompetent who means well but is unable to follow through on his promises.
At least the father called, many just don’t show up.
how can you have the same 3 dot birthmark in the same area on BOTH sides of your head ?
Prediction for the next week: Miles’ Dad takes the boys to the wrestling match.
time for mom to step up and take them
The look on Miles’ face is one of compassion; a true friend. This is such a great strip!!!
