    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(14) 3/27/2013 Wednesday


    Panel One


    “I can’t hold it any longer—-too strong!” Corinne tells Jinx as her strength is waining from its mindless animal fury.
    “Get up here now! We have double bulkhead doors.” Jinx told her, set the auto pilot again and goes to open the hatch.


    Panel Two


    With the cargo hold door closed to the sea and the fantastic Monster X free it is frightened and angry at being inside the jump-jet. It starts hitting the bulkhead left, right, up and down violently.


    Panel Three


    In the cockpit cabin Jinx is working to keep the craft in trim, Corinne sitting next to her trying too, using the axillary control wheel. The inertial navigator is keeping their forward course toward Nan Ratol island.


    Panel Four


    While all this is going on their CO Red Ryan checks in with them. Awkward is the least of it.
    -
    The title is taken from the G. K. Chesterton book, “The Everlasting Man.” You will find it influenced the nature of my little story independent of its creation.
    “He would find the trail of monsters blindly developing in directions outside all our common imagery of fish and bird; groping and grasping and touching life with every extravagant elongation of horn and tongue and tentacle; growing a forest of fantastic caricatures of the claw and the fin and the finger. But nowhere would he find one finger that had traced one significant line upon the sand; nowhere one claw that bad even begun to scratch the faint suggestion of a form. To all appearance, the thing would be as unthinkable in all those countless cosmic variations of forgotten eons as it would be in the beasts and birds before our eyes.”

    So Wizer wants to spill his guts. If he does he should be banished from Moo.

    Wow, three whole panels in one day. And the conversation goes backward instead of forward.

    So much for the comedy relief portion of this story arc…

    Is Wizer confessing to the Benders?

    Good morning Bender and all! The story should be over but the bickering continues. Is the denouement that we’ve been waiting for – are we there yet? How about now?

    Hey Sneaky, be careful!!
    .
    All these negative comments are just subliminal messages designed to trigger toxic, Bayesian-LaPlace radiation tuned to your brain waves.
    .
    Don’t you remember telling us about that secret political conspiracy from those CIA radicals in New York and New Jersey?
    .
    They are using these negative comments to bait you into divulging your location!
    .
    Run! Hide! They are watching you! Don’t forget the aluminum foil!!

    Good Spring Morning to the Benders and the readers of Alley Oop. So the Wizer calls the the dinos he drugged, his
    friends, and Guz and Alley, Children, he definitely has a Papa Stalin syndrome. Guz and Alley are acting like kids but this storyline, as I stated before, isn’t over until the Wizer
    comes clean. Wizer’s whine concerning keeping an open
    mind show he still doesn’t want to held accountable for his
    actions.

    I am sure the Benders and GoComics appreciate all comments as the strip is paid for based on views of the strip and advertisers ads.
