    Plus his Nostradamus-like predictions of how this week (and the last week and the week before that) was gonna be good.

    It’s gettin good…Alley to the rescue on Dinny. He can ride in there, scoop up doc, and beat it out, ahead of those
    monsters. Wizer will be ever so grateful, I’m sure. He
    may kind of explain to Alley,hopefully re-cement their
    friendship. I don’t think Alley or Guz, friends had a
    clue how Wizer was feeling. They’ve been friends for
    too many years to let this ruin it. Go, Dinny! :-)

    18,335 people have subscribed to Alley Oop on Yet, this board is filled with the carping, and caviling of a dozen or so members of a perennial gripers’ gallery. The gripers have made it virtually impossible for ordinary fans of this strip to have a pleasant exchange on this board.
    How about we hear from the great silent majority? The tens of thousands of people, who read this strip regularly here, and derive enough pleasure from the experience to come back for more?
    Constructive criticism is great. Continuous, carping and griping is just plain toxic.
    It’s time for a revolution! Lets take this board back from the bullies in the griper’s gallery.

    No-one’s trying to be a bully, we just want one of our favorite comic strips to return to the greatness it once enjoyed. I’ve always loved Alley Oop and believe it was once one of the world’s greatest comic strips, ranking up there with Li’l Abner, Gasoline Alley, Dick Tracy, and Little Orphan Annie. But since the untimely death of Dave Graue it has degenerated into something that a high school student would find insulting to their intelligence. I would like to see this strip revitalized, like was done recently to Dick Tracy, so Alley Oop can once again take its place as the great comic strip it was meant to be. That’s all.

    Carping? Sounds fishy to me!

    Good Morning Benders and all Alley needs to know that
    his name was being screamed on the Open air party
    shoutout line, so it wasn’t necessarily for him.
    A side note: In the years I’ve been reading Alley Oop online
    nothing has changed. Those unhappy with the Benders are still unhappy. Those who like how the Benders are doing the strip are still happy. This is a reality of life. I for one will
    keep reading and enjoying Alley Oop. I encourage
    Tundrasea to do likewise. If the comments bother you,
    ignore them. If you see something in the strip you enjoy comment on it. Do not let anyone, myself included,
    try to steal from you the enjoyment you are getting from the
    strip. Have a great day.

    The complainers are your typical squeaky wheels. Always making noise. david42 has been doing this for years on this strip. As far as the comment from nightgaunt regarding ham-fisted strip writing by the Benders and wanting the quality of Alley Oop from years gone by, could you please direct us all to some old archives that were so vastly better than the present strip. One more point, which I already know will fall on deaf ears. This strip is what it is today with a change in writers. It’s not going to go back to Dave Graue, because he’s gone. Get it? If you don’t like the present strip, leave and find a better one. Geez!
