    Good Morning, folks.

    Starting Sunday with a recap isn’t a bad idea since I’ve seen worse ideas.

    Can’t wait ’til Monday.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(11) 8/25/2013 Sunday

    Alley doesn’t recall such a structure here or anywhere in Moo. How long has he been away? He’ll need to ask Doc Wonmug about this when he gets back, if he gets back.

    From what he could tell there are only those giant horrors walking guard, no people in sight. Many a red and orange burning torches where that red glow came from. He needs to find some stairs.

    He keeps hearing an eerie honking scream. Bouncing off the hills nearby. Must be those things hooting to each other.

    Looking out at a cleared area of the forest the impressive structure stood. Circular and maybe 3 stories tall at the rim. The star light gives him some clarity but not much. His nose knows though and he has to avoid the hunting horrors for as long as he can till he can find out what the devil is going on in Moo.

    Just the weekly recap in lieu of a new Sunday story.

    They could try something radical like advancing the story. Oh, wait, they might have to do some work. Perish the thought.

    I think Alley’s about to meet the love of
    his life. And this time it’s with somebody

    Morning, Oopsters.
    @Wootitoot – Hmmmm, indeed. Maybe John only works on the weekday strips.
    @gkid – Nice? Read the history of this little writer’s club. They were one of the most sordid, adulterous groups you could imagine.

    Good Morning Benders , John Wooley, and readers of Alley Oop. Doc’s insulated jacket for Alley only goes to mid thigh.
    The insulated boots goes to his shins. Alley going to have
    some very cold legs unless he can get some pants or
    leggings. I really like the recap being on Sunday rather than
    Mondays. If you miss a day during the week, it’s a lot better
    with a summary than backing the strip day by day to the
    date you missed. Of course I never miss a day of Alley Oop, the first strip I read every morning. Next of course is Dick
    Tracy then Gasoline Alley.

    as usual a decent story line undone by poor writing, poor artwork and excruciatingly slow and needless story development.

    Absolutely true.

    Nailed it. Save for when the nay to nay sayers open their traps.

    One of my Alternate Alley Oop stories of the House of the Worm had some of the Frankenstein-like creations waking and scuttling around under the sinister house. Plus one mismatched giant still moving around. Hideous but with the mind of a child. A very powerful being.
