    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(158) 1/22/2014 Wednesday

    On the raised dais where the thrones are Alley and Ooola have just about removed all the Hairshirts on it. Others fly around on pterasaurs and see it happen. Only the loathsome xooloos remain as her inner guard. Tasked by Wootietoot to remain with her. They will obey her orders. She needs them now.

    “Ok’ay Eeny this is the end of the line for you.”
    Eeny grimaced at them both, but addressed Alley.“Oh please, you are such a macho macho man. Smash the lady in her head and drag her home.”
    Both Alley and Ooola were alarmed at what she said. Then Alley got wise and just slowly turned back and have Eeny his own grimace in place of a smile.
    “Nice Eeny. Trying to throw us off some with that? Kinderspeil is all that is. Not going to work on us.”
    “Not-on-us,” Ooola repeated emphasizing every word as she slowly and deliberately brought up her colt .45 in order to shoot Queen of the five kingdoms Eeny to finish her and her insidious power.
    Eeny was thinking furiously. Ooola and her weapon. No wonder Alley warned her not to think about invading the future. But then she too can get weapons like that and learn how to use them.

    “Hey! Concentrate on me Eeny.” Ooola said that curl of lip aimed at Eeny now. Eeny knows that curl well, for it is her own.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    A little late for that, Ooola.

    Bender-hell-U-broker is simply incapable of drawing a face in perspective … Ooola’s mouth and eyes are SO poorly constructed in the last panel … makes me cringe!!!

    I was tempted to respond to Nottawasaga’s challenge in your behalf, but refrained.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop.
    Some pickup lines for the guards to use.
    Don’t worry lady about the noise, we were just arguing over who would take you to dinner first..
    Hi there lady, we are just two border guards. We aren’t
    drunk, we’re just intoxicated by you!
    I don’t think Ooola is going to be able to hide from the guards.

    hard to hide from two guards who have you in their sights—even if they are idiots.

    There has been some improvement in the art work which is good. Ooola’s adventure continues.

    Only Leonardo drew as Leonardo. That would be plagiarism or forging of his style.

    Amazing how folks can get so nasty over a comic strip. No wonder there is so much discord in the world over issues that matter.

    What does his artistic ability have to do with pointing out how poorly Jack’s art is? APOI is a professional artist but even if he weren’t it doesn’t mean he can’t critique someone’s work. I read a lot of movie reviews that are written by people that have never made a movie; sports articles by guys that can’t hit a 95-MPH fastball or throw a football 20 years; and book reviews from people that can’t write. If you don’t like when someone points out the obvious, just don’’t read the comments rather than knock the person who expressed his opinion.

    Too bad your buddy can’t reward your loyalty by making an effort to construct intelligible sentences.

    Even as only a daily reader, no authoring experience, I can see boo boos; stuff that can be tuned in the future if some kind of publication possibility were looming. I’m sure even Stephen King has roughness in his early sketches for a new story. His is not a daily stream of consciousness effort although as a seasoned professional he could do justice to Alley Oop, if he were to do a story sequence or two.
    Despite all the criticism heaped on the previous Dick Tracy author he kept doing the strip until he was good and ready to put it down as will the Benders. With only about two or three years of following this comic I feel it could stand to pack a little more punch, and some days does pique my interest beyond casual.
    Larry took his Oop fan fic out of here and distributed it through email. That story didn’t slack and came with that little daily cliffhanger that keeps people anticipating the next install. In the old days before Net and 500 channels anticipation of what happens next sold ongoing newspaper subscriptions. My dad carried the morning and evening paper. Doubled my comics. Doubled my fun !
