    The time hopping was a fringe benefit for Youchi but not for Ooola!

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 14 “Dark Trail of Doom”(42) 7/23/12

    Panel One

    Ever since his resurrection Iron Palm has been feeling better than ever. Dr. Dark told him the one type used on him was different—-regenerative. He is truly alive but at the optimum of human functioning. The others have been resurrected but not alive. No oxygenation of tissues. He can understand it all now unlike in his previous life. He is actually better at everything! His strength, visual acuity and no physical problems. No aching joints or pulled muscles as he remembers with perfect recall now. Even his punches are harder an with less effort. Any injuries he gets heal almost immediately! Lately he has noticed he can see into both the infra red and ultraviolet now. Dr. Dark hinted that more changes will happen the longer he is alive. Dr. Dark told him that his wife-to-be will be brought back from anabiosis in the same way should he succeed. He must and will succeed!

    Panel Two

    Being inside the Faraday cage no communication can go in or out along the conventional electromagnetic spectrum so they just wait anxiously to have it over with. Oscar is with the JTTF in their black out uniforms though no insignia or rank but he is carrying one of their assault rifles and reload belts. Looking over at where the complex and delicate Erikon Tube is waiting for Dr. Dark’s minions to come and get it. Dr. Dark is too smart to think in one, two or even three dimensions. No one has ever been so dangerous as this “super unknown” person has been. (Reading the dossier on him is chilling enough.The bizarre surgeries he did in Nazi German, what he did while in Britain were unmentionable and the Unit 731 atrocities he added to all were and are loathsome in the extreme. Despite orders Oscar wants to kill this abomination on the world no matter how powerful and brilliant he may be!)

    Panel Three

    Alley finds bodies but not too many and he hears a strange whirring sound! Then a zombie velociraptor jumps down to face him. He swings but the fiendish beast dodges it easily and hisses at him. Then it makes a yelping call to others! Even the great Alley Oop can’t take on so many of these who were so dangerous in his own time.

    In Moo the velociraptors are hunted mercilessly. Too dangerous to live in Moo or any of the surrounding towns.

    The attempt at drawing some background in P1 is a little improvement, but I hate the way Ooola is drawn. She just isn’t as pretty as Graue and Hamlin drew her.

    I was wondering has either Larry or Night-Gaunt49 gotten Lola back to earth 2?

    Our resident ?artist? forgot to draw some eyes for Ooola in panel 2. Way to go, Sloppy.

    Not yet I’m still working on the Dr. Dark story but I have definite plans to return Oola to Earth 2 and an expedition there to learn more about that mysterious parallel earth.

    Lola was in a space ship on her way home, but the crew got kidnapped and enslaved by the horrible Glarbs. It’s bad. It looks like they may be there a long time, possibly forever.

    I’ve been reading some really great new comics collections that I’ve picked up this last couple of weeks – Starr’s “On Stage”, Gottfredson’s “Mickey Mouse”, Barks’ “Uncle Scrooge”, and Smith’s “RASL”, all superior comic works. This has left little time to catch up on reading the Oop archives at this site and after reading superior work, it’s really hard to slog through the dreadful Bender stuff. Nevertheless, I read a few months last night to get me to 9/1/03 in a long drawn out story about a malfunctioning time machine. Oop and Dinny have randomly popped up in 300 AD England (Dinny as the dragon slayed by George), 600 AD Scotland (Dinny as the Loch Ness Monster), and now Alley has been switched with a physicist in 1957 and is mistaken for a Yeti. Dave Wowee has conveniently appeared from the future to gut out the old time machine and replace it although the one guy that can apparently fix it (from 1957) is accidentally (and inexplicitly) switched with Oop. The scientiest is brought in playing the bongoes – to show it’s really the fifties- and Oop appears randomly on a mountaintop and just starts walking, and people thinks he’s Bigfoot! If you thought that Carole Bender’s writing gradually went downhill, I suggest you go back to the archives and read. There is the last year or so of Graue’s work and then the Benders take over. It went downhill immediately.

    My point in my previous point is that the syndicate has been satisfied with the Benders for over ten years now. Does anybody have an idea how an organized effort could be made to let the syndicate know of what long-time fans think of the Bender’s work? I’ve tried contacting them but just seem to run into a brick wall. I’m frustrated that GO comics (is this the the actual syndicate?) don’t seem to realize or care about how bad Alley Oop has become.

    HaHa, this reminds me of a book I read…what was it? Oh yeah! Sisters Grimm. One of the characters, Puck, didn’t know that you had to propose to someone to get them to marry you, he thought you had to drag them off! Just what Yochi did!
