    “Putsch”?

    Is this supposed to be a reference to a certain Beer Hall meeting in 1930s Germany?

    I’m intrigued.

    Putsch or push, what the Nazis tried in Bavaria in 1923. Put Hitler and others in prison for a time.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(80) 5/30/2013 Thursday


    Panel One


    Jinx is being approached by the resurrected contract killer of Asia, Kayla. She is showing her signature knives she is about to cut up Jinx with, who is clearly out matched. So Jinx fires her stunner at full power. She feels a blow to her left shoulder.


    Panel Two


    Jinx is aware of the physics and physiology of what the stunner does to the living. But this artificial reanimation is a big unknown. The effects didn’t happen at once. Kayla did stop her charge and she seems to be stunned but not by much. Then she stiffens like super quick rigamortis setting in and fell over like a statue. Jinx makes a mental notation on it for her science diary even as she notices the

    protruding knife.


    Panel Three


    Alley has Gommer’s big hand wrestling with the Glock 17 he had pulled to end the fight as Alley blocked the knife. Alley has weight and strength but Gommer has indefatigable energy and knows how to fight and beat larger opponents. Sop is let down after being hit with Jinx’s stun blast. Neither of them can fire on Gommer without hitting Alley Oop.


    Panel Four


    Both Alley and Gommer can see their position and Gommer has no plans on being stunned. “Go ahead, shoot us both!” Alley shouts to them. Then Corinne sees the knife in Jinx’s left shoulder as her legs collapse. Corinne runs over to her.

    So he is a traitor fomenting revolution, not quiet what Wizer had planned but he would have wanted to if he had better writers thinking for him.

    From: “The Concise Oxford Dictionary” (eighth edition)

    *putsch” n. an attempt at political revolution; a violent uprising. [Swiss G. = thrust, blow]

    He seems to be a stranger, so “traitor” wouldn’t apply. More like agitator or instigator. Maybe infiltrator?.

    So this clown has gone from being a lawyer to a revolutionary in just a few weeks. What a story arc!

    Also, why would the Wizer be familiar with a word that wouldn’t be used for several thousands of years into the future? Jeez Louise….

    Lawyer to revolutionary: There’s few things like a potential future in jail to focus the mind on change!

    There’s nothing like being thrown into a pit to get one’s revolutionary tendencies up and going….

    Fill the pit with water and get this over with, wait, burning oil. The Benders can give us a depth by depth commentary each day. I hope this is not TROLL talk.

    At least Hitler could draw a little. This guy is just a sleazy lawyer.

    Why should Wizer be familiar with a German word? If Doowee wanted to say revolution, why doesn’t he say “revolution,” not us a word from a different language? And why would a lawyer be advocating government overthrow in the first place? Goodness, the Benders’ story has gone from lame to just plain stupid!

    Sorry. I meant to say “use,” not “us.”
