    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 15 “House of the Worm”(100) 11/10/2012


    Panel One


    Alley kicks the creature with his right leg just at the elbow level which elicits a grunt from it and hesiation from reaching for Dr. Tucker, then Alley lifts himself sidways gripping the stiff earth, bringing in his legs then kicked hard knocking the giant almost over.


    Panel Two


    Hopping down, getting his club and smashes the nearest hand of the patched together monster with a sharp “snap!”


    Panel Three


    He really felt that and howled grabbing his shattered hand,by his other overly long appendage bringing the injured member to his snaggle toothed mouth and started sucking on it loudly. Is that crying they hear?


    Panel Four


    The Outsider had calmly been watching the activities between the poor creation of Dr. Havelone and Alley Oop a strange being in his own right square off. He feels sorry for the hulking confused thing.

    Foozy is a good start. I wonder if Alley’s people have some kind of a written language? Better yet any symbols and colors to show danger would be better. Universeal symbols would work.

    Yes, there have been numerous signs and posters in Moo over the years. Names of who’s cave it is, lists of things for sale(Oop and Foozy started a store at one point), and the sign at the border of Moo and Lem. Even some banners announcing celebrations, etc.

    The transport spot is broken? Who knew there was a “transport spot”?

    He wants to guard the time travel transport spot because it’s broken? It seems to me that the time travel transport spot should be guarded because it’s a time travel transport spot. The thing is dangerous whether it’s broken or not and should be kept a complete secret.

    Moo has had that time travel spot for over 70 years. The dinosar has left that barn some time ago. Warnings are the best thing since time travel is no romp.

    Good morning Benders and all. Too many readers want to make Alley Oop be conistent and logical. Sure there has been a time portal for 80 years but so what? Why can’t everybody just accept what the Benders are doing? If this is how Carole writes her story, so be it.

    Not if it is out of character for the characters then it is a travesty. Poor writing. No be it.

    @Gaunt-around-the-middle: That’s like saying a person or cartoon character can’t experience a paradigm shift. Those who don’t evolve are the oddballs.

    Well I guess I was wrong. T Rex is going to visit the Mayans.

    I agree with firebrand 2…. at 84 years old I have changed many times in that period… and when I go to a high school reunion, my changes seem small compared to people I meet for the first time in 65 years… Alley Oop has to change as a result of everyday experience… we ALL do.

    carole’s changes are nonsense and simply bad writing and characterization. a classic comic can and should evolve (see Dick Tracy) but it also should remain true to its characters and legacy.
