    Monday’s strip is for those who don’t get the Sunday strip in their newspaper, if you must know.

    We know but we don’t know of any papers that take just the Sunday. Do you?

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 16 “Earth 2 Crisis”(45) 1/14/2013


    Panel One


    The smaller long necked Mokele slumps onto all fours and gallops to them in seconds. About the size of a hippo but with the long neck, frilled head, hair like filements like a mane down its neck and back then stopped and started floating again.


    Panel Two


    [[You have my Gummagum. ]] Lavainge “heard” in her head and it startled her. The wiggly animal jumps down on large back legs and goes back over to the Mokele child. Must be a pre-adult. The color change hasn’t happened yet.


    Panel Three


    They are all open mouthed at what just happened. They had all “heard” the statement in their heads, their very brains vibrated with it.


    Panel Four


    The Gummagum had no body type of any prehistoric animal. In fact it has more limbs than any mammal, reptile or amphibian of their Earth 1, yet it seemed to be a mostly harmonious mix of them and more.


    Panel Five


    “It must be some kind of gene spliced pet for they youngsters,” Oscar said scratching his own bald head over it. “More surprises than a booby trapped Jack-in-the-Box!” He added.

    Or it could also be for PEOPLE who only take a Sunday paper — like me! In my case, this particular strip is not in the newspaper I take, so I can only read it online, but there are other strips that I see only in the paper, and I appreciate it when I don’t miss big chunks of the story by not getting the weekday papers.

    I know how you feel, Alan. In this strip, between Monday and Saturday you might miss somebody scratching his nose, twice !!

    But not everyone subscribes to the whole week.

    I didn’t have to know. I only click on the Sunday strip so I don’t miss any of NightGaunt49’s gripping storyline.

    From what you have described, it seems that the Mokele communicate via telepathy.

    What is it now, Dick Tracy? Maybe he should have added labels “T-Rax” and “Witch-Doctor”

    I understand. Out little group discussed this a year ago or so but no one at the time told us if any news papers they knew of only carried the weekend Alley Oop. Thanx for the information!

    Like Alley Oop today, my repeat comments from yesterday:

    I finally did it. I’ve read through the complete Oop archive which starts with the end of Dave Graue’s reign. It was painful, which is why it took me so long. Don’t get me wrong – I love comic strips. I could easily read 10 years of On Stage, Mickey Mouse, Terry & the Pirates. Pogo, the Spirit, Captain Easy and more – no problem, because they are so fun to read. But here – bad story after bad story with art nearly as poor. Where you would hope to see development and improvement, there is none. Gaping holes in logic and continuity, unfinished story lines, characters not true to form, lack of humor and pacing, banal dialogue – sadly, it’s all there. Once one of the great comic strips, Alley Oop is worse than banal under the control of the Benders. Very sad.
