    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.

    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.
