    I’m not sure what the barbarian is saying in Panel 3.
    Panel 5 – Mamoulian was a film director back in the 50’s.

    P1 – Annie, by Jay Maeder and Alan Kupperberg / Okay! Let’s do it again! Try to get it right this time, Mushmouth!
    P2 – Deathworms From Planet X / Scene 29, Take 64
    P3 – A filmshoot somewhere in Italy. The picture is called Deathworms From Planet X. Top talent, it doesn’t exactly boast. / Begone, Demon! Begone, I say! Your nightnare kind will not … Oops … I mean, Nightmare. / Cut!
    P4 – But it does have a few money men. / Who is this fool aristocrat who suddenly decides to invest in our film? / His name is Count Oliviero. I am told to expect him momentarily.
    P5 – Count Oliviero, as we know, is none but Oliver Warbucks, today a US undercover man in the grim crusade against the world’s evildoers. / Gentlemen! Yas, yas! So happy to meet you! How I so adore the cinema. Tell me, are you familiar with Mamoulian? / Oh, for …
    P6 – And here he has found a few. / Fine! We will take his money! But keep the fatuous boob away from me! / I fear he specifies one condition for his generous support. / Jay Maeder and Alan Kupperberg 3-03-02
    P7 – That we find a role for his woman … the elderly actress once called Vesuvia! / Vesuvia! She is still alive? Very well! Write her in. The crone desires a comeback, eh?
    P8 – Begone, Demon!

    You may not have been sure of panel 3, but you got it right on the money.

    Miriam Hopkins star of the early screen made a memorable appearance in the Outer Limits Lovecraftian episode “Don’t Open Till Doomsday” as the bride who lost her husband on their wedding night 40 years before to an alien box. Creepy, electric and arresting.

    That’s the one problem I have with these old scripts. They’re scanned in at too low of resolution. Even wearing my bifocals, and enlarging the screen, I can’t read the Sunday strips. You know, Annie was a movie actress briefly in the late 20s early 30s strips. I wonder if she is going to insert herself into this movie, too?

    Thank you once again davidf42 for saving me the frustration of attempting to decipher the tiny print.
