    How much would you want to bet on that? Don’t bet much, you’d lose.

    There is something on my radar, something smells funny. Guz is too comfortable with this Zorn and Zod thing, like Alley has been taken for a ride. There is no second Earth, all 3 are the same and Alley is in some psychedelic warp, compliments of Jake and Oscar.

    Maybe compliments of Jack and Carole. If this goes strange then the Benders and Lola is an actor and Doc comes out of a door in the side of the mountain, the whole Jim Carey Truman Show thing then I will be amazed.

    Morning, Vagabonds!


    ANNIE’S BACK!! THANK YOU GOCOMICS!! HOORAY!! YAY! WHOOHOO!!


    It looks like GoComics has heard us at last! They are rerunning Annie beginning when Allen Kupperberg took over the artwork. If you click my link, it will take you to Annie, January 24, 2012 which is a rerun from April 24, 2001. They still don’t have Annie listed in the Comics A-Z Navigation, but it’s a start!


    Here’s the link to Annie 2012 .


    Again – THANK YOU, GOCOMICS!

    I wish Alley Oop was still well written and well drawn … but I’ve accepted that the Benders are doing the best they can and until someone with more energy and talent takes over the strip it will continue to be what it is today. So ’til then … ????

    This strip makes me sad. It has the potential to be so much better.

    what a bunch of whiners ! this no worse than the present “race” for nomination that’s going on… it is a fictional piece of work… cartoon quality drawing… and a silly story… that’s what it’s about… suck it up.

    When you have kept up with the comic for a few decades, come back and see how you feel about the current state of affairs.

    Children… Children
    Architects get paid by how much a building cost to build, lawyers get paid by how much they can get from the other guys lawyer, etc
    The benders get paid per strip not panels or what in them, or how good the drawings are, to V.T. Alley meant more him than money it gave him pride that we followed Oop and his gang.

    guz didn’t really “find” his crown — it was dropped on his head in an insultingly implausible plot turn that only a second-grader might find amusing. today’s conversation is just silly and makes no sense. if this is whining, then so be it. there’s a lot to critique, er whine about, here.
    btw, thanks for the annie link david!

    It probably is still written for children, but they won’t sell any books. The dialogue is so boring and the pace is so slow, even the brightest and most diligent child would lose interest.
