    This is one of the hardest ones to read I’ve seen yet!
    P3 – Trouble reading the narration.
    P6 – Not sure about “snakes.” Two other words I couldn’t make out.
    P7 – Not sure about “Paul.”
    P8 – Not sure about “imbecile” or “attached.”


    P1 – Annie, by Jay Maeder and Alan Kupperberg / “Death Worms From Planet X!” Of all the lousy movies! And I’ve made some real trash, Annie!
    P2 – “Behold, the moon is full! But the shadow of the Worm Goddess falls not yet upon the land.” Boy, the Worm Goddess must have written this.
    P3 – Italian police now release three detainees. / Lack of evidence! Ho! We are crafty fellows! / Let us find our truck and return to our moviemaking brothers.
    P4 – But stay not far behind them / They have boarded the train, my Commander! / Very well.
    P5 – Our birds fly, Count Oliviero. They will be with you soon. / Thanks, Chief. I’ll be in touch.
    P6 – Aha! Now the action begins! Three (something) men returning to the film set … two them terrorist snakes … and one a (something) agent infiltrator! / Jay Maeder and Alan Kupperberg 3-10-02
    P7 – Count Oliviero, tomorrow we move to location shooting in the hills. Surely too rugged for you. But we have enjoyed your company. / But no! I wish to observe all! How I love the cinema! I will go with you, Paul.
    P8 – Oh! (or Eh!) Our imbecile producer will not leave! / The man has attached himself to us. Hmmm. I wonder …
    P9 – Nope! Count Oliviero goes nowhere! Because he’s got unfinished business with your rotten kind!

    Many thanks again to david142. Without your transcriptions, many Annie fans like me couldn’t keep up with what’s going on.

    P3: find our “track”, not “truck”
    P6: “key” men; “secret” agent
    P7: rather than Paul, it’s an affected “Yas!”
    P8: “imbecile” is right; looks to me like “accreted” rather than “attached”. (to “fuse”)

    My 87-year-old weak eyes almost makes me give up with trying to read this strip.

    The plot thickens but the ability to see the writing weakens. Thanx to both David42 & JanCinLV.

    i really appreciate the “translations” — but this strip is utterly hopeless on Sunday.
