    Oh YEAH!

    Now Wizer’s gonna get it, Oopsters!

    I can’t wait until Monday! (Or Tuesday, depending . . .)

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(24) 4/6/2013 Saturday


    Panel One


    Corinne has decided to call the “Creature X” a “Baldander” after the literary creation which was first conceived by shoemaker and writer Hans Sachs after reading the description of Proteus in The Odyssey.*


    Panel Two


    Alley sees smoke and smells the rich aroma of sap from the sliced trees. He stops, gets out and treks through using a machete he rented for just this use, with scabbard. What he finds is the crash site of the major body of the plane, half dug in and on its side into the ground.


    He sees that part of the purple fuselage is burst out as if some tremendous force came out of it. He sees a strange set of tracks leading into the jungles around him.


    Panel Three


    “Hay!” Alley hears a shout, it sounds strange, and female. He sees two women in purple with yellow stripes on the arms and legs and wearing visored orange crash helmets, holding odd guns.


    Panel Four


    “Hay there.” Alley replied bowing like a European aristocrat to them. Even doffing his hat in a grand sweep. The helmeted ladies look at each other then holster their stunners.


    Panel Five


    The ladies remove their helmets and drop them. There are formal introductions. Alley’s questions are a bit too inquisitive for them. This case isn’t for the Internet so they tell him to go, that it is “classified.”

    • Scrubious Pip, a children’s character, may have been patterned on this idea. Described as a combination creature of bird, mammal, insect and fish, and leader of and friend to all animals.

    Well if King Guz wants to help Wizer, he can have him.

    Or November, depending…

    Guz is taking orders from Oop. Think about that a bit…

    I don’t think he’s taking orders from Oop, Oop’s just saying that Guz can do what he needs to do to punish the Wizer for his transgressions. Otherwise Oop would do it himself. Guz is certainly ready to tear into him. LOL

    So, will we see some action now? Oh, I forgot, this is Saturday. We have to wait for Sunday’s cut-and-paste and Monday’s recap before we can get to Tuesday’s new panel.

    Gus is not a dictator and Alley is his best friend.

    Lessee, Guz restrained Oop, Oop restrained Guz.
    Guz is king, Oop defers to a higher authority.
    Yep… I reckon Oop gets what ever Guz leaves behind and then Dinny may get in a couple swats.

    Unless… Foozy, Ooola and Umpa stop them.
    BTW… is Wootietoot even around Moo anymore?

    Alley’s right arm seems deformed in the second panel. ???? It’s short and sort of twisted. What happened to it?

    ……
    “Hay there.” Alley replied bowing like a European aristocrat to them.

    Not trying to be nitpicky, but there is a huge world of difference between HAY and HEY. Outside of that, great installment.

    Good morning Benders and all. I don’t remember Alley telling Guz to go easy on the Wizer. Leaving it to Guz is probably a mistake. Better bring co-ruler Umpa in to seal the deal and end this arc.
