    Probably the last time I will post here. Just to give you guys a taste. For the thrilling climax, visit me at:

    The Glarbs have just started filling in the grave when amazingly, Gritzel seems to have a change of heart!
    “Clear the dirt off and bring him up!”


    To Ooola’s utter joy and relief she sees them bringing up Alley and opening the lid.
    “Oh, thank God! Thank God!”

    Grizel says something to Jeffrey and he disappears for a moment, then returns with what looks like a rectangular metal box with an air tight lid.
    The guards lift Alley, still motionless, out of the crate.

    “Put him in here instead, “ orders Gritzel, “and without the axe. And make sure it’s locked and sealed.”

    To Ooola’s horror she watches as Alley is now placed in an air tight metal coffin, without his axe.

    And now Alley, sealed within his new coffin, is lowered once again to the bottom of his ten foot grave.

    Seeing Alley now buried alive for the second time, Ooola can take no more and faints in utter grief and despair.
    Lola is crying too. As are the rest of Alley’s few friends, amongst the thousands of cheering Glarbs.

    The dirt is shoveled back on top until the grave is filled.


    Two guards then use compactors to pack the soil as tight as it can be.

    And this time, there is no order from Gritzel to bring it back up.


    And there Alley remains, in a sealed metal coffin.

    Unconscious, barely alive, at the bottom of a ten foot grave, on the hostile planet of Glarb, with very little air left.

    Ah yes, we all have our limits of permissible/acceptable inconsistency…even in a suspended reality comic.

    You just made some unwarranted assumptions. If you look at a map of Chichen Itza, it’s apparent (to me, at least) that Ooola was led around the perimeter of the ball court, and arrived at the lower temple entrance, on the other side of the court. She, and the priest climbed the stairs, to the upper level of the temple, which overlooks the ball court. Check out the layout map at this site: http://www.world-mysteries.com/chichen_index.htm

    @TexMichael

    You’re too quick to judge Tex. Check out my reply to Firebrand.

    BTW, the ruins at Chichen Itza are awe inspiring. I visited there years ago, and they left a lasting impression. Visit there, if you have a chance.

    The ruins are just that — ruins. No matter what else you think about this strip (and this particular story line); you have to give the Benders some credit for showing what a time traveler might see there.
