    Good morning, Alleygators . . .

    Yep, being an attorney is DEFINITELY a new thing around Moo.

    Storylines may start slow but once they pick up . . .

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(56) 5/7/2013 Tuesday

    Panel One

    The photonic brain that controls the hypersonic craft “Bellox” verbally gives information as the three screens show the captain, a female vampire named Luxius, the information conveyed in the vampire language written in red. It sounds very much like Romanian but not quiet. (Romanian came from their language when they settled from the old country into what became Transylvania thousands of years later.)‡ But even she is under the command of the photonic brain that runs the ship and was designed by the great Dr. Dark for her country.)

    Panel Two

    <<An enemy craft is approaching from the West, the other is still following us. We will arrive at Nan Ratol island is 3 minutes 6 seconds. My scan has shown where the target is hiding.^ I will direct you to it for capture.>>
    “Yes Leader!” She saluted in the Imperial way, as the Romans, Napoleon and Hitler all copied from them. Luxius isn’t that old for one of her kind still beautiful in human terms. 314 years so she still shows mostly human looking. Only the very oldest lose all human appearance and they are reputed to be over 10,000 years old and are in special redoubts on seven continents. Her lubin Babu squats near her always sharp of eye. Her second Xark is in the hold with the others and his lubin, Taz and the lesser of the crew. She doesn’t like saluting a machine like it is a vampire archon! She also doesn’t like working with these reanimated dead. Though they act as if alive, they aren’t and some of them have a stench about them. The same with their appearance. They look like corpses too in some ways. Around her clique they are called "disposables.’ A disgrace to the sanguine uniform.
    ^That life giving and mutating energy that the Baldander holds in its tissues is being detected, so it can easily be found. It would have to die to remain hidden and it doesn’t die. Dr. Dark had found and isolated that frequency in the earlier 1900’s before he took a low temperature sabbatical in 1945.
    ‡Some say that some how Dr. Dark impressed the Archon’s neurillic engrams on it so you are speaking to a version of him in every unit of the line.

    The Attorney’s entire argument about the prisoner’s rights are based on what the law of Moo’s says about the prisoner’s rights. If Guz doesn’t even know what an attorney is…guess who has no rights?

    Hurry, Guz! Put Doowee in the pit before it’s too late!

    I posted this a few days ago on Little Dog Lost and felt it needed repeating after reading a comment at Agent Gates this morning, it certainly applies here as well

    I read over 100 comics a day and if one isn’t quite up to my standards I have developed a unique way of dealing with it, I move on and read another one

    If a comic consistently fails to entertain me, I just quit reading it

    Complaining and criticizing on the comment board changes nothing and it’s just annoying to the people who are enjoying the comic

    @Doctor Toon

    Basically, I agree with you. There are many comics that I used to read for a while, but then I quit reading them. In fact I am about to drop several from my queue right now, including Agent Gates, because they simply aren’t doing anything for me. But I treat Alley Oop differently because I have such fond memories of it from my childhood and youth and seriously want it to improve. If my comments annoy you, please recognize the fact that they don’t annoy everyone, and simply ignore them.

    It is possible that since Guz is playing the part of a rube here that the lawyer might convince him Wizer should have rights as a prisoner. Still incredibly silly of the lawyer to walk into a new land (and from where?) presuming his concepts of the law and rights would apply.

    Maybe they can feed the lawyer to a dinosaur – like in Jurassic Park!

    Fine for you but we would like Alley Oop to regain the standards it had. Unlike yourself. Why is that so hard to understand?

    GeeMan: That sounds like a lesson that the U.S,A, might find useful in the field of int’l relations….other countries have different ideas of law and order…. that actually work.

    Good Morning Benders and all. DooWee the wannabe lawyer is lecturing Guz about the rights of Wizer. He
    deserves nothing less than the pit. As stated in the Declaration of Independence, ’Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. The Moovians, at some time in the past,
    made Guz their King, ceding to him the authority to rule
    them and make laws, as necessary to aid in the ruling. If
    Guz becomes a tyrant, he can be overthrown. No lawyers exist. No rights exist for visiting wannabe lawyers. To talk to
    the Wizer he needs to be thrown in the pits.
