    Uh oh . . .

    Looks to me Guz is not being reasonable . . .

    Then again he isn’t reasonable most of the time.

    Let’s see how THIS goes, Alleygators.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(39) 4/20/2013 Saturday


    Panel One


    “For we know it is right by us listening to every thing we say…” Jinx whispered.
    “I tell you it must have changed its scent on purpose to thow us off…” Alley told them.
    “This is beyond our kin, nothing like it in the grimoires…” Corinne added.


    Panel Two


    They finish discussing it after a few more minutes. Baldander withdraws its extended ear and watches them very closely in the sweltering heat and relentless green of the jungle. (Baldander is getting some ideas of its own now.)

    Looks like King Guz isn’t interested in anything else but punishing Grand Wizer.

    Well, this is more like the Guz of Hamlin’s day, many times like an adversary of Oop’s…. Oop had his share of pit time over the years.

    One man rule never did work….so many have tried it. Our conservatives “think” that President Obama is a “one-maner”, then cry about leadership…

    No, Guz, don’t put Alley Oop in the pit or you may get impeached or something!

    I have repeatedly claimed that the Benders move the story too slow. Someone suggested that if I could do better, that I should prove it. So below is my suggested rewrite in which I prove that this story could move three times as fast.

    April 1
    Panel 1 – Inset: Wizer explains how his drugged dinosaur plan went awry.
    Wizer: … and when I shouted “Alley Oop,” they were supposed to stop.
    Oop: Well, that explains that.
    Panel 2 – Wizer: But now I know better. Next time I do this, I just need to make the potion a little stronger.
    Guz: Next Time!?
    Panel 3 – Guz: So help me Wizer, if you ever try t’pull a stunt like this again, I’ll …
    Wizer: I remind you both. All this was really your fault in the first place.


    April 2
    Panel 1 – Guz and Oop: Our fault?!
    Wizer: Sure. If I’d been given a little more respect, I …
    Panel 2 – Guz: Grrrr!
    Oop: Y’hear that, Guz? It’s our fault! We didn’t show Wizer enough respect!
    Panel 3 – Guz: Don’t hold me back, Oop! Lemme at ‘im!


    April 3

    Wizer (starts to run away): Wait, Guz! Remember your blood pressure!

    Oop: When ya catch ‘im, Guz, smack ‘im once for me, too!
    Panel 3 – Oop (top speech bubble): Poor Wizer. I hate t’think what’s gonna happen t’him when Guz catches him.
    Dinny (gives Oop a look from the corner of his eyes)
    Oop (bottom speech bubble): Sorta.


    April 4
    Panel 1 – Oop (Riding atop Dinny): Aaahhh! There’s finally peace in the valley again. Sure glad that so-called Dino flu is over with, aren’t you, Dinny?
    Dinny: Snort.

    Wizer: Guz, no! You’re choking me!
    Guz: Don’t give me any ideas, Wizer!
    Panel 3 – (Guard walks up)
    Guard: Yer Highness, I heard a ruckus over here. Is everything all right? Y’need me t’do anything?
    Guz: Yes! Take this man and throw him in the pit!
    Wizer: What?!


    April 5
    Panel 1 – (Guard kicks Wizer into the pit.)
    Wizer: Guz wait! Don’t I get a trial or anything?
    Panel 2 – Guz (looks down at Wizer in the pit): You just had your trial and your sentencing, Wizer. Hope ya like it, down there!

    April 6
    Panel 1 – Guz: Are you threatening me, Wizer? Let me remind you who’s King around here!
    Wizer: And let me remind you who the Grand Wizer of Moo is, your Majestey, and what I’m capable of!
    Guard: Sounds like treason to me, Yer Highness!
    Panel 2 – (Wizer is sitting in the darkness. Guz’ voice is coming from up above.)
    Guz: Wizer, I know you’ve got all kinds of powers, but don’t forget that all your potions and charms are back in your cave. You just sit there and contemplate about what you’ve done.
    Panel 3 – Guz (to guard): Keep a close watch on ‘im. He’s not goin’ anywhere for a long time.
    Guard: Yezzer!

    What is a “grimoire”? I’ve never heard of it.

    Why? For being a better writer than the Benders? If that were so, Night-Gaunt would corner the market on flags! LOL!
    (If anything, you two deserve MEDALS, not FLAGS!)
