    And what does Guz hope to accomplish by himself with one old man helping him? Shouldn’t he be calling out the army?

    That may happen Tuesday! You know how slow the Bender’s go.

    When seconds count, the Army of Moo is only hours away.

    Maybe when this episode is near its end, all the citizens of Moo will get together and have a huge party! But, let’s include Wizer this time, please?

    Alley Oop may be the greatest (only?) hero of Moo, but King Guz is of the old school when it comes to leadership—if there’s a problem, smash it!

    Good Morning Benders and all. Wizers doing a great job in
    giving to Guz the minimal amount of information on what is happening. To Giz’s credit he doesn’t delay but sets out to help. It may be a cultural thing in Moo. When Guz sets out he immediately shifts his club from left to right hand. Alley
    does this with his axe also. Tuesday when the action starts up again. Wizer may still try to stab Moo in the back.

    Can you believe this arc started nearly 2 months ago? Why does it have to be so painfully slow?

    and the answer is: the benders don’t know any other way.

    The arcs generally run 2 months . Nothing unusual here. Try the current PHANTOM story arc — it started 7 months ago and it’s still going!

    A long story are is okay – as long as the story progresses. I don’t read the Phantom so I can’t comment on it. But in Alley Oop so little happens because the Benders put so little effort into it. In a typical week, there are 18 panels but only 12 of them are new. That’s it. And of those 12 panels many of them are repetitive adding little to the story development. There is also very little dialogue so the story unfolds very, very slowly. There is also a lack of consistently both in story and character development. It’s all very sad, really, that this once great strip is handled so poorly.

    Bullies, stop picking on the Benders. If you don’t like their work, stop reading this strip and read others that you do like.

    For a long time, people, who liked this strip, just ignored the bullying comments, thinking the folks making them would grow tired of repeating themselves. Instead, however, this gave the false impression that most people didn’t enjoy the comic because the complainers were more vocal, while most others kept quiet. Ignoring bullying here doesn’t work here any better than it does in schools.

    How about you just read the strip and ignore the comment section?
