    As I stated yesterday, the plot has now started to thicken, and I for one am interested in these proceedings.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (154) 7/21/2014 Monday

    While Alley dreams(?) his conversation with the Chinese entity Bai Ze, things are happening in the real(?) world. The massive Wanderer is on the road again to the area pinpointed by Prasrinivara in hopes it is the Luaxana terrorist base. A signal sent by one of Dead Face’s men who opened the safe for the terrorists is also where Dead Face’s forces are watching to see how it will go. Whether the terrorists would honor their commitment or lie and try to back stab him. Either way he is going to get some of that technology.
    In Alley’s mind
    Bai Ze admonished Alley to being his quest now as promised.
    §"I didn’t exactly promise you, and I am busy right now.“§ He told the supernatural creature of Chinese myth.
    §”They can continue their hunt without you. Only you can take this quest Alley Oop.“§ The subtly changing creature told him through sharp teeth.
    §”Get back to me later on that, kay?“§ Alley dismissed the celestial being.
    The majestic monster looked at him in a way he found uncomfortable. Not evil uncomfortable, just a profound disappointment.
    §”The amount of time is critical to you beginning isn’t infinite, the next time I come will be the last Alley Oop. If you do not grave things could happen to your world—-and the souls within it."§ Bai Ze said then shriveled back to a floating mouth, this time not smiling then…
    “Alley, Alley! Time to wake up soldier!” Said someone, he shook off the fogginess of waking up.
    “Ah—hey, are we there yet?” He said stretching and popping his joints as he did.
    Ooola comes closer and gives him a smooch. That got his weapon’s system to go status.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Extras get 10,000 bucks apiece? I had no idea they get that much!

    Sound here, you might, and that’s a big might, get as much as $300 a day. South Carolina has a ‘right to work law’ which just means that you can be fired for no good reason.

    Your story really has me hooked.
    Say again what it is that Bei Ze wants Alley to do?

    “Right to work” means you can work without being a slave to the union… and paying their dues that the “leaders” use any way they want.

    To go on some kind of quest. Bei Ze hasn’t yet informed Alley——directly of what is needed of him. Now Alley had this very vivid dream about several things. Some turned out to be true already. So maybe all of them will eventually come to pass.
    Here it is :

    Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (20) 2/20/2014 Thursday*
    Alley has strange dreams, he sees that white lion thing, Lug and others most he doesn’t recognize. A man in a Searsucker white suit with straw hat, with him another a taller swarthy muscular man with raven dark hair and care in his eyes. Sun burnt and regal. He sees Ooola with a new gun and with boots not Texan. He sees the dark mirror of the vampire clone of himself with top hat and monocle riding some black-winged horror taunting him. (That is probably Baldander forced to take that ancient shape of a Black Wing by Baron von Clace.)
    He sees a strange creature made up of other animals talking to him in nonsense words. What does it all mean? “You must understand Alley I only appear when dire things are about to appear.” Said the weird multiple part creature in understandable words then began again in gibberish. The last thing he sees before he wakes him so abruptly is in some casino like place called “The Third Eye” and it is very dangerous. A feeling of don’t bet on the double zero black practically burns awakening him!
    Several have already came true. He has met Carl Kolchak, white suit, and Jim Elkhorn. Ooola getting new boots also.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. $50,000 was the average cost of a western from
    Republic Pictures in the early 1940’s. I think they need a detective to sort this out, like a Sam Spade or a Richard Diamond. Failing at that call in the FBI

    Alley could solve this one – just go back to the place and time that the kidnapping occured and let the axe do its thing!

    To Bopard from yesterday, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, the phrase “tell me about it” as a sarcastic response, came into vogue during the second half of the 1900s. I would guess the 1970s but could be wrong. It doesn’t mean that it wasn’t used in a story or book before then but it wasn’t used as a common expression in 1940. Sloppy writing by John Wooley or Carole Bender.

    If you’re excited because this looks like the beginning of an interesting story you should know better by now. If we see anything but mostly two panels per day of slow moving, boring and repetitive dialogue, I will be totally shocked.

    “Sloppy writing…”
    It depends on how much you think not using common speech of 1941 instead of 2014 could be confusing to the readers.

    Is the farthermost the archives go back. I’ll need to read them to see if they were better at it when they were 18 years younger.
