    Whoever this chick is, she has style. Fighting crime in thigh high boots, with high heels no less? I approve!!

    She seems to have good timing, is she setting these encounters up?

    Are those blue converse sneakers?

    Whatever happened to Moonmaid anyhow? I just rediscovered this strip after 30 odd years.

    Moon Maid was alive and well when Chester Gould retired at the end of 1977. The new guys in charge quickly killed her off the following year, to the anguish of many fans including this one. Someone planted a car bomb intended for Tracy, and Moon Maid got in the car instead. She was instantly incinerated, which makes me think this has to be someone else. But who knows?

    60sFan, maybe they’re just throwing out the old continuity and pretending she never died? I would be fine with that, because goodness knows a lot of the continuity from the Locher era has to go down the drain just for its lack of making any sense.

    I would be fine with that. But I think the new guys will respect the work of Fletcher and Collins, and they’re the ones that killed her off — grrr. Besides that, the new guys have already shown Junior at Mysta’s grave. I’ve been wondering how they could explain the original Moon Maid being alive after all, and something occurred to me. Wasn’t she immune, practically invulnerable in fact to temperature extremes? Maybe they could say that while a human would have burned up in the car fire, she escaped with minor injuries and then returned to the moon, maybe forcibly at her father’s insistence? I know it’s a stretch, but hey, I’m just glad Moon Maid’s back, whoever she is.

    Perhaps the reports of Moon Maid’s demise have been greatly exaggerated these last 35 years.

    It ain’t Moon Maid, folks, she’s dead. And she hadn’t played an important part in Tracy for years before her demise in 1978, being reduced to a few cameo appearances in the 70’s. Peanutbutter, a 10 year kid had a crush on her, Junior no like, hi-jinx occurred. That was about her only story in that time period, so her demise was no great loss at the time.
