    Guz is going to blow his stack, it appears. And the Wizer is as clueless as usual…

    Wizer, you’re digging your own grave with Guz.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(21) 4/3/2013 Wednesday


    Panel One


    The story up to now, Alley Oop after surviving the attack of Dr. Dark’s vampire clone of Alley Oop with two vampire velociraptors sent to kill him. It fails only because a ghost, Baron von Clace took over Brucutu (the clone’s name) when he was injured as his own body then left. So Alley wanting a brief vacation and went to the Pacific. In this case the mysterious and exotic Nan Ratol in the Chula
    island group for some R and R. At the same time two female members of the Challengers of the Unknown (CofU) Corinne a Magus magician, and Dr. Jinx Hayle, an all around scientist to capture for safe keeping a fantastic life form. One that has been in continuous existence since life began on Earth! M-Island is the place they are to take the stunned creature too. However it hasn’t worked out that way.


    Panel Two


    The Challengers jump-jet had the “creature X” in the hold but the close pass by the ground effect craft Alley was in came too close and messed things up for Jinx and Corinne. Alley and the other passengers made it safetly to the balmy island, but the two CofU were in trouble and had to abandon ship just before it crashed on Nan Ratol with a shape-shifting creature that is unkillable, immortal, and
    can adapt to any environment near instantaneously!


    Panel Three


    Alley is at present driving to where the pilot module of the ill fated jump-jet “Roxton” is coming down to earth, he is moving as fast as he can in deep jungle roads to reach them.

    Looks like King Guz doesn’t like the idea of more experimentation with dinosaurs. Wizer better tread carefully.

    From yesterday:
    @Keeper 98
    Those leaves aren’t drawn. They’re a cut, peel and paste artist aid item available from graphic supply companies.
    —————
    Even if that’s true (and I have no particular reason to doubt it), presumably someone had to draw them in the first place, and someone has to arrange them in a realistic manner on the page.
    I don’t really care HOW they do them. My comment still stands, that I find the effect much more realistic than how trees are usually drawn in most comics, and, that being the case, I like them. I was quite impressed the first time I noticed them.

    I’ll admit that I was impressed the first time I saw the floating leaves, too. And the second time. Maybe even a little the third time. But when I noticed that Jack was using the creepy floating leaves as a way to avoid drawing Hamlin style backgrounds, I liked them less and less. The leaves, together with the silhouettes, the talking heads, and the extended hands all work together to allow Jack to be lazy. And I’m not afraid to use the word. Lazy.

    Not to mention the two panel a day format and the Sunday cut-and-paste, and the Monday rehash.

    Wizer needs to stop right now, while he still has a chance. Either that or change his name. I would suggest right now is a good time to make like a track star and run.

    If I may offer an alternative viewpoint:

    Drawing Hamlin-style backgrounds may be preferable, but have any of you stopped to think about how long it and painstaking it takes to produce one? Remember, people, that the Benders have to consider that they have DEADLINES to meet. The “creepy leaves” method may be their way of saving time and meeting those deadlines.

    Or, make like a “creepy tree” and “leave”?
    Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
