    Good Morning Fans from Rod Gonzalez!

    Well . . . talk about a case of mistaken identity!

    Clearly it seems Ooola resembles Lana Laronde.

    (Yes, I’m aware of Earth 2’s Lola, but that’s neither here nor there.)

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (177) 8/13/2014 Wednesday

    The Brown Cell Leader continued his reading of the diary of the alchemist and criminal Morgan Midas who found a way to distillate diamonds into a fluid that gives super-human speed to whomever drinks it. Dr. Dark’s ubiquitous SEBs are there and have been watching, and sending each picture of each page back to his base in Belo-Rada.
    He continues to read out of the diary.

    “The very nature of the Cosmos aided me in finding the secret means of rendering the hardest substance on and in the Earth into a super amorphous fluid with incredible energizing effects upon the living organism.
    The visit from that old dust heap Immortal Alchemist Nicholas Flamel warning me of the boundaries that must not be crossed and the need for all alchemists to be true to their creed. I was not surprised at his sudden appearance, nor his equally sudden disappearance after that warning. He has heard from others who get it too from the old coot, his own recent visits to conclaves of alchemists they have ever so often. This time he will have much to show them of his successes.”

    [Also on the pages as the fine cursive writing undulated between them were drawings of the apparatus. The “heating coil” and the “critical fracturing vessel” and other such vaguely familiar yet esoteric devices long used by alchemists and some new ones shared among the occult science underground then and now.]
    Nicolas Flamel (French: [nikćla flamэl]; prob. Pontoise, ca 1330 – Paris, March 22, 1418)1 was a successful French scrivener and manuscript-seller. After his death Flamel developed a reputation as an alchemist. However, these legendary accounts only appeared in the seventeenth century.

    Morning, Oopsters.

    Funny, no-one else noticed a resemblance between Ooola and Lana.

    Mr. Keltner did, it was his plan to have her stand in for Lana.

    Will Alley once again have to prove that he can pick the real Oola?

    Ooola has that unmistakable cave people smell.

    We suspected, I said that Ooola would be chosen as a sub.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of
    Alley Oop. Detective Bob has lost a lot of his credibility.
    One look at Ooola and assuming that she is the missing
    actress without asking her identity shows he’s ready to keep
    the 2500 and ready to run..

    If the Earth 2 Lola would show up, we could have a real puzzle. Although that would require a lot of red ink from the Benders.

    If that were actually Lana, rather than Ooola, the detective would also be entitled to the other half of the $5,000 fee. His fee was for finding Lana - he opened the door, and “found” her there.

    BTW, he’d also be entitled to “expenses” — probably car mileage, and a lunch.

    The one thing that would ruin that idea would be for Ooola to identify herself.
