    actually, relooking at it again, the perspective in that last panel isnt TOO far off. oop is a bit too large, making the other players look a lil further distant than they should be. he’s in line with facing the player in the top left corner, though. both appear to be standing off from the players near the ref, facing at a right angle to them.

    Strange, this time no Monday comic as the last panel. Doesn’t bode well for us.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 15 “House of the Worm”(54) 9/23/12


    Panel One


    The possessed Baroness could feel what is going on with Alley and the others. He/she wanted to go over there and to test mental probes on the three, but the woman is fighting to regain control. So it was a good thing that no one corporeal could see how her body jerked and moved like an internal battle was on———and it was. She was desperate to gt out of her mental prison. He was keen to keep her locked up till he could safely vacate to a more suitable body. At this rate he will never get her to take a single step if he doesn’t lock her up tight! Blasted girl, interfering with a Teutonic knight of the old school—-how dare she!


    Panel Two


    Alley Finds himself standing in low water with rank grasses that have sharp edges like Spanish razor grass but a dead iodine looking color. He smells salt, and other things unpleasant. He picks up Lavainge’s scent and follows it.


    Panel Three


    Sloshing through the marsh he dodges unnaturally too active plant life trying to either lasso him or take a bite out of him. He hears a female scream and starts running.

    I only read this strip on sundays, for some reason it seems like half the content is missing this week? :(

    Yeah, like the panel where Ooola says “please win, Alley” and he answers “that’s my plan”. Riveting dialogue. lol

    Hi Johnny,

    can you draw it following your suggestion and post a link to it (I cannot visualize your comment).

    It may be a trick of the artist’s perception, but Mr. Oop seems to have become very tall in the last panel. Also, this game now has an official. I don’t recall his duties being discussed. Maybe by my next visit, the ball will be in play. Till next week then.

    Yochi’s padle changed from “almost triangular” to basically rectangular from one panel to the next

    the problem is not so much that Alley looks “bigger”, it is the “angle of perspective” that makes it look like Alley is now right besides Ooola, watching from a high point

    @David53

    also missing is the “climb up the stairs” by Ooola and the guy watching over her

    Alley is just Oop into the air floating above the frey.
