    Same problem. They’re still on the other side of the sun.

    “Meanwhile” has an odd sense in a world of time travel.

    Don’t tell Oscar about the diamond planet. And O.L. Driller will be wondering how to turn the diamond back into coal.

    I used to like the Ally Oop strip. Now it is boring. I have been following it again for the last few weeks and the plot has not gone anywhere. The Benders must not have any good plot ideas.

    …or in a couple of weeks.

    The problem with the strip’s pace is that many papers probably only carry Alley Oop on Sunday , so major developments are saved for then, plus that strip has to summarize the whole week. So Monday-Saturday is made up of the little scenes of conversation, kind of marking time for the Sunday strip.
    But yes, I’d like to see things move along faster, too.
    A similar problem used to plague Dick Tracy, but the new creative team has sped it up greatly, with the Sunday strip building upon it the weekdays.’ You should read it.

    Big deal. Aren’t we getting more entertainment from the comments anyway? I find many of the strips have better comments than story line.

    A few things here. 1. I agreed that the comments are wacky, like this strip, I say the Benders can do what they want and we can comment on what we want. 2. So much for the secrect lab and launch site, the arrows point the way. 3. What is it with all the GREEN energy at the lab and Oscar and Oop are looking at oil? looks like another twist or twisted plot

    The *Bender*’s should be crammed with ideas here. So I wish they would pick up the pace a bit would be fine.

    I play World of Warcraft, and with the latest expansion one of the areas got The “World Famous” Secret Lab.
