    Why would Ava question about the Maya time trip? It’s not like she knows nothing about the whole Wonmug time travel setup and adventures Oop and Ooola have been on…

    And here comes Black Friday starting on Thursday afternoon, do the girls have thier credit cards ready? Will the time travel remote re appear, if the time travel machines are turned off or controlled by the government why did the remote work?

    @Night-Gaunt49 – Good question
    @Frank Farkel – Good question
    Now my question – How does Alley’s response to Ava answer her question? It’s like, “Why are all the apple orchards in the world contaminated?” – “Because I had oranges for breakfast this morning.” It makes about as much sense.


    HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYONE!

    What is the “transport spot” that they keep talking about? In Hamlin’s Alley Oop, the time machine whisked Oop and friends to the 20th century from wherever they happened to be. There was no designated spot for “lift-off”.

    And where did the camera-like device in 600 AD come from and why hasn’t it been explained? There was a similar looking device in the very first time travel story in ‘39 but that’s all it was – a camera that Einmug sent back to take pictures to prove his time machine worked and to see what life was like in the past.

    A better writer than Carole Bender would have said something like, “We’re sure because a Mayan warrior showed up in Moo”. Come to think if it, though, a better writer would be writing a story that made some sense,

    It seems to me that IF the Doc’s friends have access to the time machine and IF the Doc is in trouble now because of his involvement with O.L.Driller’s plan to make a trip to Twin Earth, the SMART thing to do would be for the Doc’s friends to travel back to the time period BEFORE Doc got involved with Driller, and warn Doc about the possible dangers. IF they successfully stopped Doc from becoming involved with O.L., then Lola would have NEVER come to Earth One, and would still be with her loved ones on Earth Two. And whatever is wrong with the time portal between Moo and the ancient Mayan culture could be fixed by Doc himself!

    Yes, it’s a complex plot — the trip to Earth 2, the mysterious Arab who took Lola, the hole in time connecting Moo to the Mayans — all these story arcs are linked. It’s worthy of a graphic novel.

    Of course, this doesn’t suit the short-attention-span types, who shouldn’t be reading anything but gag-a-day strips.

    Graphic novel? That’s the funniest thing I’ve read today.
