    well, there was nothing from Saturday, if it keeps up, Sunday might be 1 week behind in 3 or 4 months instead of just one day behind

    Did we lose a day?
    Must be that time thing.

    Well, shoot. I was expecting one new panel today at least. Instead, we’ve moved the story backwards.

    Maybe Benders hadn’t planned for the possibility that we’d still be here - scrambling now for a story -

    Good Dec 23 to the Benders and all . I agree today is unusual as is out of time sequence with yesterday but we
    did get in panel 4 the movement from arriving the day
    before and then progressing to Doomsday. Dinny was indeed lucky his nose wasn’t singed.

    the “sunday recap” is just more gibberish — and i prefer a zang to a boom

    I think that we have seen Monday’s (tomorrow’s) strip! Have a look at yesterday’s, Dec. 22 strip. That’s it! Today’s strip only repeats last Monday – Friday (17 – 21), but leaves out the 22nd. So, I expect Monday to be a repeat of Saturday. Looks like the Benders are having fun with this “Mayan Dooms Day Thing” at our expense!

    Have the Benders explained what the role of the camera in Moo is? In the original 1939 time travel story, Wonmug and his assistant Jon sent a movie camera back in time so they record what happened. When they brought it back, they left the time machine and Oop and Ooola were accidently brought to the 20th century. I don’t think the camera was used again by Hamlin but I haven’t read all of his work.

    From www.cartoonist.ca: “Carole and Jack Bender have done a wonderful job of keeping the Alley Oop spirit alive and popular, with surprising story-lines, heartfelt scenes and a humour that keeps readers coming back for more”.

    At one point, they had some camera-like device they could use to see back in Moo. If I recall, it was set up where when Alley wanted to come to the future, they could see him motioning to them to bring “beam him up”. LOL

    Not in the Sunday story. The boom could be the end of the world for the poor folks who only get the Sunday paper version.
