    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(54) 5/5/2013 Sunday

    Panel One

    Ryan tells Jinx that another transport is on its way from Thailand and should be there within the hour. Also just in from a secret bulletin that a hypersonic craft from Belo-Rada is in the area. It is heading for Nan Ratol!

    Panel Two

    The dark red flying wing-like ship is coming back into the lower atmosphere with the SR-91 100 miles behind it. The US has dispatched an F-22 “Raptor” to intercept the craft from a near by outpost on Tonga. (Tonga has a long wide air strip cut through the longest part of the island with a refueling station. For emergencies and to extend flight time. The F-22 had been there when the call came. No Navy ships were near at the time.)

    Panel Three

    The crew of human, vampire, lubin, and living-dead aboard the BRS “Bellox” have been alerted and are preparing though the craft itself is well protected from conventional weapons by repulsive energy screens and phased plasm cannons to vaporise any who dare attack. They will have the added pressure to do their job beyond the need for speed and with coordination to capture the Baldander alive and bring it back to Dr. Dark before more forces arrive.

    Panel Four

    “we have a problem.” Jinx broke in, “bad guys are on the way.”
    “Who?” Alley asked his brows beatling more than before.
    “From that new enigma in the world, Belo-Rada.”
    “Oh, s….damn! A grave matter indeed.” Corinne regained her composeur quickly.

    Panel Five

    The Baldander could sense the anger and concern, plus a little fear from all three. All its digits sprang forth witn black curved claws.
    “It happens again. I, Baldander am the prey.” It said in its strange wiffling voice, as if it had said so since life began on Earth.

    Doowee is presumptuous here. “Wise” is to know of things never heard of before? I don’t think so.

    Well, they skipped the “meeting Oop on the road” bit. And we got 2 new panels today. Nice. Now, let’s get this attorney red herring out of here and move along smartly.

    “wise person” ?
    The correct term is “wise man” .
    Why is the word man feared so ?

    When the gender is in doubt. We do have two genders don’t forget an the women are usually left out in favor of we men. That is the reason.

    I say the definition of wise is knowing that lawyers ruin everything and he should be thrown into the pit with extreme malice!

    The way it was before the “lawyers” screwed up our nation and the world in general. What was it Plato said “Kill all the lawyers” or something like that. Even then they knew the corruption that existed.

    Isn’t this the equivalent of an American lawyer going to Iran and arguing US Constitutional Law?

    Re: “Kill all the lawyers”

    First, it wasn’t Plato, it was Shakespeare. (Henry VI, Part 2, Act 4, scene 2).

    Second, the character who said it was a supporter of a guy who wanted to become king. Killing all the lawyers was the first step to getting rid of the old order so that he could be on top. Hardly a strong recommendation for a course of action.

    Third, not knowing even the basics about quotes you promote doesn’t exactly strengthen your argument.
