    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.

    Yeah, first thing I noticed also. Just phoning it in.

    Not even a single new panel. Not one.

    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

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

    The top three panels should have been run on Monday and the bottom three on Tuesday. We could be well into the game by now.

    Seems time warps do have their draw backs. In panel one, the wall in the distance has penants, yellow markers and a stone disk. In panel two, all the markers and stone disk are gone! But the penants are still there. I’d like Neil Turok exlpain that one!!

    As usual a lot of so-called experts analyzing this strip today.
