    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(37) 9/20/2013 Friday

    The women don’t come close to the arena combatants, just tamed men harnessed and yoked like beasts. Alley is so confused he needs to eat and rest up. He needs to clear his head to think things out. He stays with Dinny, the animals are normally separated from the people. Alley gets Dinny in with him. He is disgusted to see the xooloo spiders everywhere acting as guards and watchers.Yulk!

    Alley notices that only the fighters and guards seem untouched by whatever is affecting all the other males he has seen. Like their aggression was taken out of them. Weird.

    Alley is sorry he had to hurt and kill but he must survive an this isn’t child’s play. He helps dress Bosc’s broken hand. Bosc grumbles but says and does nothing but mope and stare.

    Oh, yeahhh…at last. She is
    approaching. Hallelujah.
    Careful, Alley.
    Yeah, and I
    was kind of thinking , about that cave. It’s
    a shelter but possibly
    a disaster , as well.

    If Alley climbing triggers a rock
    slide, it could cover the mouth
    of the cave.
    Does Doc have water? What about air
    supply, in that cave? And who (or what)
    are in there with him? If he has air,
    might get some
    heat, light going if there is any wood, kindling…

    he has rocks for flint.
    Let’s see where this goes.

    Look no further than your bathroom toilet.

    Maybe Doc will find a bug in that cave.

    What did Alley do with his axe?

    in his magic pocket where he frequently puts it.

    Observation this morning; could be that Mary will be the one hit by lightning and needs help by the strange people.

    Alley’s ax appears and disappears as he needs it. A real handy ability that serves him well. Though this power is recent since it didn’t happen originally.

    Interesting that the ‘continuity’ critics so far haven’t commented on the direction of the rain…. in one panel it is coming at her face and the next panel coming from behind…. I personally don’t care ‘cause it’s a “strip”, but the critics usually jump all over that one…. gotta be Friday I guess.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. So Doc has moved into the cave out of the rain.
    Perhaps he should graciously offer to share the cave with
    Mary Godwin but if he does he had better hide that the recording electronic device. Letting her see it would, once
    again, puts at risk the time stream. He also better not hold it outside too high, it would be a great target for lightning.

    Don’y worry Mary, about follwing the Big Guy, he should be dropping in on you sometime soon.

    Why is a question Mary is going to be asking all her life. She is not going to like the answers.

    why doesn’t mary just ask doc what’s going on?

    looking at the way her face is drawn: in panel she looks like a young 19-old, in panel she looks much much older. admittedly she’s frowning, but i’ve noticed this inconsistency in the way her face is depicted throughout this story. just my observation, not complaining.

    Now if only a tazelwurm would appear in that cave Doc is hiding in to liven up the story some.
