    Someone else pointed out the real problem with this situation yesterday. Under normal circumstances, Security would have taken the entire party in for questioning, not just one person. Ooola and Ava would not have been left outside, they would have been taken into custody as well as Oop.

    Have you noticed any of the Benders storytelling to make any sense at all?

    Sadly, this is all we get from the Benders. Boring and slow, boring and slow, boring and slow. Then slightly interesting. Then back to boring and slow.

    The last panel will be repeated Monday except that Ava’s note will read: Help! I’m being held captive in the Alley Oop cartoon strip!! Call the Police, now!!

    I really like the warning sign in the last panel. That brought a chill up my spine and a yawn to my lips.

    Good grief people! If you dislike a strip that much why, oh why do you come back day after day to leave such nasty comments. That would be like watching a television show day after day that you really found disgusting and then complaining about it. It’s simple really. Just don’t read this strip. Take it out of your queue. Skip over it and get over it.

    But we’re really expecting change.

    Good Morning Benders and all Ava’s note should have given a little more information as Doc Wonmug cannot use
    the note as proof he needs to be released on his own recognizance to deal to a threat in the space-time continuum.
    When the laughter stops the questioning will continue.
    The plot continues to move forward to Dec 21 the winter
    solstice.and the last day on the Mayan Calendar.
    To @Redhead55 just sit back and enjoy the comic If the critics don’t like the comic, thats just curdles in their coffee.
    Have a great winter day!

    Redhead55: You are right on the money IMHO. There’s cadre of ‘readers’ who seem to think that Alley shouldn’t change with time or artists… I guess they haven’t, and find it disturbing that the world around them changes constantly… they seem to want “tradition”.. and THAT is a social anchor, as illustrated by the Middle East.

    By golly. Here’s a person who believes like me. People have a right to their beliefs, but when it’s the same people making nasty comments day after day it gets old and disturbing. Perhaps if the Benders would quit and no one else took over the strip the situation would get better.

    please don’t tell me what i should do or what i should read. this is a classic strip that has fallen on hard times, with the artwork poor and the storytelling even poorer to the point of incoherence. if you like it, fine — that’s your right and i would never tell you what to do. i can suggest that maybe you should just read the strip and ignore the comments if they offend you so. you just don’t get what the various critics here are about. it’s not nastiness at all – you really don’t know what nastiness is for one thing.

    here’s an analogy that perhaps you can understand — i’m a sports fan and my favorite team — the Mariners — has sucked for many years now — i’m a season ticket holder and i’m as critical of their play as anyone. But they are my team and i don’t have any intention of dropping them or not following them, though it might be easier on my psyche if i did. I’m with them through thick and thin — it’s called loyalty and connection, and consistency.

    i have similar feelings for oop and other classic strips (Dick Tracy, Annie, for example). i’m not going to abandon something i cherish and that’s been a part of my life because it’s no longer very good — maybe, like my ball team (and like Dick Tracy), things will improve.

    Meanwhile i admit i take a kind of perverse pleasure in pointing out the foibles of this beloved strip…and annoying you.

    Perhaps Sir, if the comments get “old and disturbing”, you may rectify that by just reading the strip everyday and not reading any of the comments. Problem solved….
