    Meanwhile, LOLA’s expression says “How did i wind up in THIS madhouse?”

    And speaking of the quirks of the Earth 2ers, the way Zorn and Zod didn’t think they looked alike; I can imagine Lola, on seeing Ooola for the first time, saying, “She doesn’t look a THING like me!”

    Seems the ILoveComixArchive.com site is down for good … a dispute over copyright infringement I think.

    So … no quick fix for those of us who wish for the “good old days” of V. T. Hamlin’s Alley and Ooola.

    Lola is thinking “why is the queen about me kissing my husband”……………….. and Alley Oop thought it was strange that people thought him and “Early Opp” looked alike(Early Oop basically is Alley Oop of the 1930’s)

    We never did see Umpa or Oop on earth 2. Maybe they’re just figments of our imagination.

    I’ll bet it was due to them selling the strips.

    It’s a shame, I loved that site. I was in the middle of ’58 when Alley and Oscar made their second trip to the moon.

    Lola kissed him on the cheek, he did not kiss her. I thought it was a strange way for her to kiiss the man she thought was her husband, the husband she didn’t think she was going to see anytime soon. Why does Oop never learn? He does the same stupid things over and over again. Does he think he can just take Lola somewhere else and Umpa will just forget what she saw? It’s about time for Ooola to show up.

    blah-ba-blah-blah … wait, what happened in panel 2? guz and umpa are suddenly blacked out for no apparent reason! did the benders run out of color ink? is this supposed to be “artistic”? - imo it’s another example of really lazy and incomprehensible artwork.

    Just get it moving again, for cryin’ out loud! This drags on worse than the old Locher Dick Tracy plots.

    Did you know the last time Alley Oop had a time travel adventure was in 2007? Now the time machine is used only for travel from the present to ancient Moo and back.

    I read the entire Alley Oop strip via newspaperarchive.com. You have to subscribe and search day by day but eventually I read every daily strip.

    Looks like the web site ILoveComixArchive.com is down for good, but you can purchase the Alley Oop Magazine at:
    -
    http://www.specproductions.com
    -
    Back issues are available. I recommend the years between 1939 and 1950 … IMO those were V. T. Hamlin’s best.

    Oop needs to get this quirky storyline all straightened out.
