    Good Morning, people.

    Doc and Ava are here, all right. Oddly, Oscar hasn’t shown up.

    Oh well, hope he shows up soon.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(55) 8/1/2013 Thursday*

    Alley Oop is searching the control panel trying to find a hand brake or something—anything to stop the capsule from moving. Good thing he doesn’t have claustrophobia. So far the capsule isn’t moving as quickly as it did. Hope that soldier gets him on his way to the fort.

    At the tube terminal in Ft. Thorndike Sergeant Wolf has arrived. PFC Hanson swears he sees Wolf’s eyes glowing.
    “So what is the sitrep now?” Wolf barked at him.
    “Well, uh, so far nothing.”
    “Nothing?” The Sergeant loomed over Hanson.
    “Turn around private and let me see you work that board.” He growled.
    Hanson about faced and looked over the board for the umpteenth time. Only now he has a huge wolf breathing down his neck. Is this how Little Red Ridinghood felt?

    I don’t recall Doc Wonmug going on such trips. Usually Oscar or Alley goes.

    Shouldn’t he be getting out a coat that matches the time period where he’s going?

    Yes but that was never much of a concern for Doc.

    Night-Gaunt49 has in the past been banned from commenting here, it wasn’t for being civil.

    Time machine? I think it’s working. Or is this deja vu?

    Its deja vu all over again.
    I figgure Doc will see Oop on Tuesday. Doc has made some trips in the past, but with Oscar out of the Pic, he will have to accompany Oop. It would make sense to have Ooola around to help Ava monitor the time machine.

    When each day’s 2 or 3 panel strip covers what might be a single paragraph of narrative in a short story or novel, you must expect for the story to move slowly most of the time. Otherwise, the strip would be disjointed. Admittedly, the illustrations do not lend themselves to rapid action due to a lock of background detail, but the writers do a fair job of keeping with the original artistic feel of the strip.

    @sphinx wormwood

    A statement of fact is a negative comment to you? How do you feel about all the whining about the strip by NG and Co.?

    You will find that Dick Tracy can cover ground faster than the present Alley Oop. Better writer.

    carole “clumsy dialogue and narrative action” bender at her best
    in spite of that the idea for this story arc does have possibilities, but can carole pull it off? time, probably an excruciatingly long period of time, will tell, but given her track record i have very little confidence in that.
