Fantastic! (FYI, there is a typo in the "Besides, did you forget" frame)
The Blockhams in "DIVINE INTERVENTION"
For those of you that weren't following along... Thursday's strip saw the Blockhams patriarch Glenn literally DIE when his youngest son delivered the news that he had fallen for the unthinkable.... a Buckeye girl.
He awoke beside pearly gates, among the clouds, and in the presence of a familiar and legendary man....

The old man himself. Bo.
I really enjoyed putting this one together, as lengthy and wordy as it is. Obviously it was pretty easy to see where this strip was going, but I felt a real need to pay honor to the man who made the program what it is. And in light of, well, yesterday, especially here in PA, I thought about him in ways I never thought I would. But for better or worse, Bo never pretended to be perfect... he only inspired perfection.
On Thursday, Glenn returns to his earthly form and gets like the last ten pages of 'A Christmas Carol.'
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every Tuesday here at MGoBlog,
and at least every Thursday on its official home page. Also, don't forget to
check out Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
...aaaaand fixed. Don't know how I missed it. Always grateful for the sharp eyes of the Leaders and Best.
Good stuff, although I think Bo should have had his signature M hat on (same with Woody and his O hat). But that's me.
Who better to give Glenn perspective than, well, another person named Glenn (by birth anyway)?
Fantastic. Loved "the tape says...". Well done.
Your best work yet. Thanks for doing what you do.
What great work!
Six Zero, man...
Great stuff! Just awesome.
This is the best "Blockhams" yet, combining wisdom and humor in a winsome fashion. And oh man, that last panel. . .
Spreading love is the Brooklyn way.
This is definitely one of the better strips.....but I'm a little disappointed that Bo didn't get up in Glenn's face and go "THE FAMILY, THE FAMILY, THE FAMILY."
For totally missing it. Dang, that's gold, Wahoo
This is what I thought was coming in "Worst Nightmare", and now I feel bad. I'll try to live better now. Thank you.
Although, Bo's shorts are a little John Stockton-esque in a frame or two.
I love this.
make me understand why the Fab 5 mocked the players who came before them!
Fritz, Bo and... Yost? WHY U NO FIELDING?
