    Maybe it’s Jimmy Hoffa.

    Bet a dollar to a doughnut that it is Steven Baux!

    Replying to De Hunt’s comment from yesterday:

    “With all due respect to the artists, for once I must agree with SDM, in that the pace of this episode has really slowed to a snail’s pace with talk, talk, talk. And today’s chapter seems terribly repetitive and slow.”

    I absolutely agree with you.

    Most of Curtis’s stories began with very elaborate stories (Mrs. Flattop, Phishphace, Mr. Crime, Measles, Broadway Bates) which developed for long time (we got to know the motivations of Mrs. Flattop, Phishphace, Measles and Broadway Bates), and then, when everybody was waiting for a balanced ending (a bit elaborate, at least) to this fascinating stories, voilà, we had all the stories collapse, sorry, I meant “wrap up” in a matter of days, with infantile endings. But now…. this is quite interesting. This set up is building up for weeks, now we get lots of close ups of Baux,.. this handsome fella…

    … which shows us that the creative team has a better “time budget” than they did before. So now that we have more time, let’s add more details to the story. Anyway, if we ran out of time, we can always resort to the Charlie Tuna Wrap Special, and end a sophisticated story in three days. You know, because it takes months to build a house, but you can demolish it in a day. By the way, I love Staton’s art. I’m a fan of his work. This drawings are beautiful. I’m wanting to say the same about the ending of this elaborate story.

    This is the kind of storyline I’d love to see Team Tracy and George Takei take to Warren Beatty. It has screenplay written all over it. Oh well, dream on…

    Joe Staton is a master comic book artist. I loved the way he drew Belle/Willa (somebody mentioned her detailed hands, beautiful work.) But the backgrounds Joe draws are awesome, too. He the man! ;)

    We know that Stephen died before he could be tried. This implies he was in police custody at the time of his death. I’m fairly sure that his remains are in the Baux crypt, just like Sweatbox said.
    My theory is that the blackmailer, who hid the confession from the real murderer in the box, may have just been found. Price you pay when trying to blackmail a killer.

    daedalus, i dont know how many times it has to be said, but apparently it WILL be repeated with almost every story that gets printed… in the beginning when curtis and staton took over the strip, they only had i believe it was, six weeks to tell a story…. with the fan reaction being what it is now, i am guessing that TMS listened and gave the go ahead for team tracy to extend their stories.. last i heard mike was running with an EIGHT WEEK time frame. THIS story in particular, was given an 8 week nod so yes, it DOES give them more time to weave an intricate tale…but the catch is to NOT get so caught up in the “little things here and there” that they take up too much of the allotted time and force the ending. if i remember right, i believe that THIS story is the first one they were given the 8 week nod for, so just give it time and enjoy. as for the stories seeming “slow, boring and repetitive”….. from what i have heard you would have torn your eyeballs out if you had read locher’s work on here, lol

    as for the skeleton just found in the camp freedom sludge… it almost looks as if it’s mummified. i would think that after 70 years being submerged the nose wouldnt be as preserved as it is, but overall i am more than willing to look past that and enjoy this TRULY FASCINATING story!
