    Greetings fans from . . . me!

    Well, guess Ooola may be taking Lara Laronde’s place after all . . .

    . . . and the plot is underway!

    I don’t know about you, but I’m finding this intriguing, I kid you not.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (179) 8/15/2014 Friday

    At the new safe house
    Engrossed in the old diary, BCL was reading it and Dr. Dark’s bug-like robot was also reading every page and transmitting it to the sinister Doktor in his Transylvanian mountain stronghold and growing laboratory being hollowed out from within by vampire slaves and boring machinery of his own design.
    The diary continues with another observation about Midas’ alchemical labors;
    “The refining aludel has been showing promise with the new platinum mesh.” He can tell that Midas was getting more excited by the less regular more rapidly strokes of the written words.
    “…the electro-capellator is working with minimal fuss in the drawing off of the rare effluvia of the burning diamond in the thermal fracturing process then filtered through and condensed into a liquid through the narrow end…”
    “Now its getting interesting,” he said under his breath.
    In the air following the Wanderer
    Shen (Kato) has been careful to follow the Night Eye, with the Green Hornet’s spy eye of the DOD group so he is not easily seen as it follows their RPV-R which is following the Wanderer on their merry chase of CCTV cameras.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    An aludel is a subliming pot used in alchemy and medieval chemistry. The term refers to a range of earthen tubes, or pots without bottoms, fitted one over another, and diminishing as they
    advance towards the top. The lowest is adapted to a pot, placed in a furnace, wherein the matter to be sublimed is placed. At the top is a head to retain the flowers, or condensation, which ascends. An aludel was used as a condenser in the sublimation process and thus came to signify the end-stages of transformation and the symbol of creation. Also called the Hermetic Vase, the Philosopher’s Egg, and the Vase of the Philosophy.
    [Electro-Capellator used by Morgan Midas in the 1860’s to distillate his elixir of Speed from diamonds was of his own design. He discovered charges of ions in his chemistry.]

    Morning, Oopsters.

    What is it about Oola’s looks? First we had Lola, now Lana being ringers for Oola.

    It shows an obvious lack of imagination on the part of the writer.

    I checked out Colombo’s official website. He loves to draw nude women.

    Gee, we didn’t see this coming.
    And it only took the Benders six weeks to get to it.

    It’s too bad that so many trolls can’t just enjoy the strip without all of the carping and bitching.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readrs of Alley Oop. Detective Bob is definitely slow on the uptake, As Ooola does appear to somewhat like Laronde, his plan,
    no doubt, is to have Ooola, a la Prisoner of Zenda,
    pretend to be Laronde around the studio to draw out the
    kidnappers. John Wooley must have a hand in this intriging
    twist in Alley Oop. Bravo!

    what are those bits flying out of leslie’s mouth in the second panel? tic-tacs? food crumbs? black spittle? exclamation points minus the points?

    I suspect the dicktective has other things on his mind from the expression… none of which are good for Ooola.
