    Night-Gaunt, At this point, the synopsis in the first two panels is well timed. I really like your panel style. It helps with the visualizations. When the panel changes, you know that the “scene in the screen” is being refreshed.

    This has gotta be a win. No contact with the body was involved. The ball went from the referee to be hit with Ichik’s paddle over to be hit by Oop’s axe to score the goal.

    We’ll see. I enjoy Oop and the writers of the strip.
    Thank you, Benders, for many good years of this strip.
    I do not believe it needs to be rewritten.

    And we’re back to the same lazy artwork and two panel strip that characterizes the Benders’ performance. Honestly now, couldn’t this have been done in one panel, with two other panels to cover whatever is going to happen tomorrow and Thursday? Sheesh!

    I’m trying to figure out why this strips draws me in every day. I mean, Doonesbury I read first, every day. Then Alley Oop. Why? What’s the fascination? Why would a guy who reads Doonesbury also read Alley Oop? I can’t figure it. What is it for the rest of you?

    @Jack Landen

    I come here because I have always, from my childhood, read Alley Oop first. I keep hoping that I’ll see a notice that the Benders are retiring and being replaced by decent cartoonists. The other reason is to read the comments, which are ten times more entertaining than the strip.

    I also read AA and Doonesbury, along with a few others, but I save Doonesbury for last. 9 Chickweed Lane is surprisingly good, but for some reason, there’s no comment section with that one. Any idea how to contact Go Comics and request one?

    I will be pleasantly surprised if there is any more new activity until Friday when the Benders setup for the weekend panels. Then they will make that last until Tuesday of the following week. This could be a once a week 3 panel cartoon and it would cover more than it does now in a week. However, I would miss the daily comments. I keep reading because I hope it someday returns to the way it was 20 years ago.

    Saturday and Sunday the ball was set up to be hit from right to left, today and yesterday it was hit from left to right.

    I read the Phantom followed by Doonesbury and Alley Oop.
