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

    Right, like waiting for the cops while burglars pillage.

    Yeah right, one club against the dinnys?
    And didn’t they all peacefully coexist until recently?

    King Guz will be rallying the Moovians on his way to help Alley.
    Wizer will be a no-show (gotta catch his breath, don’ ‘cha know!).
    By the time they all get there, Alley will have bopped the red Rex and all the others will have dispersed.

    Oops! Sorry if I’ve spoiled it for everybody! We’ll find out if I am a “Seer of the future” probably next week.

    Keep up the good work, NightGaunt!

    I pulled out an old paperback that I bought 30 years ago – Alley Oop in the Sawall Chronicles. This is pre-time macnine and early Hamlin work from 1936. At the start of the story, Dinny has been hypnotized by the Wizer- a similar theme to the Benders’ current story. But Foozie and Guz break the spell by hanging Dinny by his neck from a cliff until part of it breaks off and Dinny comes tumbling down. The story then veers into Alley and Ooola’s trip into Sawalla and their efforts to return to Moo through a swamp of dinosaurs. There is broad humor in the story but none of the inane silliness that the Benders bring. Is the current version of Oop just another example of the dumbing down of current society? I don’t know what the answer is but if any of the Benders could just read this story (or the first time travel story currently running in the Comics Revue) they would realize what so many of us have been saying for so long. This strip deserves better than the Benders. I just hope it outlasts their tenure on this strip,

    Wow McDuck, you brought back some memories. Now I am looking over my old paperbacks. My favorites were from Robert Howard, Lin Carter, Fritz Leiber, Talbot Munday, John Norman, and the ubiquitous Edgar Rice Burroughs. Some of them only cost 50-cents … new.

    One of the things I loved about the Hamlin version was each 4 panel comic had a caption. And also the very creative insults that Oop and Guz would always hurl at each other. LOL
