    Morning, Oopsters.

    Alley should have said that yesterday instead of acting like a wimp.

    as if he would have even thought about taking on alley, who is clearly physically superior.

    So, yesterday Leslie tried to ‘psyc’ Alley out and spill any beans he may have been holding (as it were).
    Now, he’s pouting over the fact that it didn’t work.
    Poor baby! And after all those hours of practice in front of the mirror, too!

    The bad guys HAVE to have an exploitable weakness. Fighting against evil because it’s the right thing to do will only go so far without seeing some kind of success.

    The strip has a bit of a stall, since we learn once more that Bob’s name is Bob.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley and readers of Alley Oop. In less than 30 seconds Alley had broken Detective Bobs tough guy facade to reveal his wimpy self. The fact that Alley could break him like a dry stick had nothing to do with it. Now maybe with Alley asking the questions, some information can be discovered.

    Yes the problem is making it plausible enough. And in this future time (a few decades, I won’t say how much) it is much more security conscious than today. A minor extrapolation of our own trends.

    Thanks, I think you are doing very well.
    I’ve always had a problem with a really great book I was reading; great plot, edge of the seat and all that.

    Then in the last chapter, everything gets wrapped up quick and awkwardly, as tho the author got bored or was told to ‘fess up the manuscript so it could be published on time.

    I don’t recall the authors, probably because of the lame endings.

    Larry’s Final Oop Recap (before new stories)

    Alley’s heart skips a beat!
    There is a hand gripping his leg, pulling him back down to his grave!!

    He looks down.
    There is enough light to see that the hand is connected to…a Glarb, from below, trying to pull him down.
    And then a voice, slightly muffled by all the dirt:
    “Alley, please, don’t go back up. They’ll kill you!”

    What the heck??
    “Who are you? Let go! Where did you come from?”
    “Come back down and follow me and we’ll tell you everything.”
    “Back to the coffin? Are you crazy? Who are you?”
    “I am Litadel. We have tunnels. Please turn around and follow me.”
    It is then Alley notices that below him, around his coffin, there is a rather large tunnel shooting out from the side of his coffin. And Litadel is holding some type of drilling machine. Did he come up from somewhere below??
    “You’re one of them! How can I trust you?”
    “I was on my way to rescue you. It took a while to find you and you already, somehow, got out. Yes, I’m a Glarb but I’m not one of them. We’re trying to overthrow Gritzel and we need your help.”
    Something seems to ring true for Alley. Dremmil spoke once of a supposedly rebel group but they thought it was only a myth. Guess not.
    “Come on. We will feed you and help you rescue your friends.”
    If this stranger wanted him dead he would have left Alley in his coffin.
    “Okay, lead the way.”
    And strangely enough, Alley Oop turns around and follows Litadel back down, towards the very grave he just escaped from.
