    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 15 “House of the Worm”(96) 11/6/2012

    Our heroes in the lowest level of the most dangerous haunted house in America, there are a few in other countries that are as bad, and Alley Oop is ready to tackle head on a horror left over from the fiendish experiments of the late unlamented Dr. Horace G. Havelone. It is huge, ugly, hungry and is coming right at Alley, Dr. Tucker, Lavainge and Baroness von Clace in the gloom lit by feeble cold yellow lights.

    Panel One

    Alley isn’t sure he wants to fully see what is coming their way like a walking statue. Its feet making clumping sounds now that it was closer. He could feel the vibrations of each step through his horny calloused flat feet.

    Panel Two

    It seems to be made up of parts that don’t fit all that well together. A face only a belt sander would love, miss matched eyes in color and size and placement as are the parts they are attached to, a horrible jangle of fangs dripping with saliva onto its moldy, dusty, moth eaten rags nearly black with soot, earth and less mentionable things.

    The thing had legs like an elephant with very heavy shoes reinforced with metal braces. Does it have only two arms? Alley doesn’t care he centers himself then swings his heavy wood club aiming through the malodorous thing in front of him with all of his muscular body behind it.

    Alley Oop acting like a petulant child. Doesn’t seem to fit the Alley I have read from earlier times.

    Strange. Oop is back to Moo for what, 10 minutes, and he’s having some kind of tantrum? He’s had enough of both of them? For not giving his ball back when he asked? Are we sure this isn’t an Oop duplicate from Earth 2 that came back with Lola, while the real Oop is stranded back on Earth 2?

    This gets curiouser and curiouser. Gee Whiz!

    In fact, it’s downright silly. Oop sees a couple friends that he hasn’t seen for a long time and within a matter of seconds gets his precious little feelings hurt and runs away to cry.

    Yeah, and (odder yet) the tear is in Foozy’s eye.

    In time travel, the body is broken down metabollically and reassembled again. You can’t keep doing this and expect there is no chance for mental change. Alley needs to see a shrink.

    Happy US Election day to the Benders and all readers.
    Alley needs a vacation and not a time traveling one. He has
    all the symptoms of stress overload. The near death experience of the mayan game is catching up to him.

    If you have been reading my story with Alley Oop he is many things but not this. He has long experience and education because of it. He is not a cry baby with a chip on his shoulder. But just another service Jack & Carol Bender does for us.

    A service?
    Or a DISservice?

    “..miss matched eyes in color”
    The eyes were matched by a woman? :OD

    Some think that maybe this strip is written just for children, but it seems more like it’s actually written by children.

    Do you think the Benders have put their grandkids in charge?
