    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (139) 7/6/2014 Sunday

    At the converted safe house the Luaxanian grave robbers have tried every possible way of viewing. Only to find their scanning is a waste of time. So they must open the safe. They can’t cut into it with the oxy/acetylene or it might burn up the old diary into useless black cinders. So they will have to crack it. So they get to work in shifts. They have 6 hours or something else will have to be done.

    At the Wanderer at the airport next to their C-17 modified jump-jet awaiting the Kerex technician. The crew is taking some rest and eating. Prasrinivara isn’t eating with them. Several are anxious to see how the Kerex security will be bypassed to open all three of them. Others need to rest some now.

    Several stories in the news including a story about what happened last night yet with significant gaps. Also stories of more strange aquatic creatures of the same unknown species washing up on shore. Some of which have been found to have many large stings as of giant wasps. several have dead wasps the size of dogs in their mouths. Also fires out of control in Madagascar (under control of the COBRA terrorists) and it is hard for the Rescue Heroes to get to survivors because of the violence between COBRA and special forces (Sigma-6). There is the bizarre and growing story in Montana about strange creatures running around. Keeping National Guard from nearby states to help and now the leader of this menagerie is speaking to the public. A weird sort of man wearing green goggles, heavy lab gloves, yellow jaundiced skin, black lips and long flowing white hair with a booming voice identifying himself is “Dr. Aloysius James Animo” and claiming the state as his “Nature Sanctuary.” Some kind of device on his head with two antenna that looks like horns, he calls it a “transmodulator” and will “change the evolution of Earth starting with Montana.”

    The Benders must be proud of their laziness. Every Sunday they show us how they used two panels per day and useless filler to take only two days of story progression and stretch it out for a whole week.

    They should have used the top three panels in Mondays strip and the bottom 3 Tuesday, then continued in that fashion. The story would read so much better, be way more interesting and provide a little daily entertainment.

    It’s too bad they won’t change because the way they do it now, Every day the strip is just Boring, Boring, Boring.

    Notice that this time they had Alley use his ax to show that the fence is rickety with that inset circle.

    I thought he left his ax back where he saved Oola. He must have made a replacement!

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley and readers of Alley Oop. Once again for the Sunday only crowd, Welcome back
    to the strip John Wooley. I really enjoy your ideas being
    imputed into the strip. Recaps condensing the weeks
    strips are fine and indeed enjoyable. However if you don’t
    show the panel having Alley saying ‘Nothing to it, even a
    baby can do it’, the context of Ooola repeating sarcastically
    back what Alley said is lost.
    The phrase ‘No worries’ came to us from our good neighbors Australia. It is close to the US phrase ‘No
    problem’. It’s not a throwaway phrase. It means you are in control. Alley definitely wasn’t in control. Since Ooola knows
    what ‘No worries’ means, Alley shouldn’t have used it. His
    relationship points with Ooola are back in the negative.

    seems to me that C.B. is being ‘feminist’ in making Alley look like (and act like) one of the 3 stooges… and as a very old male I can really understand her viewpoint… I think most of us guys could use a makeover much earlier in life…. sigh….

    Another lazy Sunday by the Lazy Bs. Cutting and pasting takes so much effort!

    I don’t know any Feminists who want to pigeonhole men. Since I, a male, am a Feminist too. But that is the difference between reality and Reich Wing propaganda.

    No, just as Alley and Ooola were about to make the time-jump, Alley was shown with the axe in his special pocket.

    Another lazy Sunday by the Lazy Bs. Cutting and pasting takes so much effort!

    The reason for it is that some newspapers only carry the strip on Sundays, as I and others have explained here before.

    JPuzzelWhiz – it don’t matter to the complainers. They can’t accept the fact some people only see the Sunday edition. It’s nice if we get a lead in to Monday, but I suspect that only happens when there’s not enough panels to make sense, and adding one more would ruin the flow—therefore make it new. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it.
