    Well, I was surely wrong about "Sweatbox.* That dirty @#^&+#@&%

    The first order of business should be to send a couple of cars to watch his house.

    At least Mole was able to see what was happening to Toad.

    Where’s the APB here? You have to wonder though, how can someone known by so many in the town get away with this kind of thing for as long as 70 years or so?

    But, don’t worry, Toad won’t be the NEXT “skeleton in Sweaty’s closet”, Tracy is on the case now!

    I expect that the AMBER Alert system exists in Tracy’s World?

    @DaJellyBelly

    They are just making it look that way, it’s not what your thinking…

    Are you saying that THIS is the red herring?

    Sweatbox, your timing is excellent. Kidnapping Toad just as Tracy and Lee are at your home? Better hope they find you before Mole does. If not, better make more room in that mausoleum of yours…

    So,Why didn’t they SHOW Sweatbox ACTUALLY kidnapping Toad and Mole seeing it? Get the feeling a day or two’s strips were rejected by Tribune Media?

    Because obviously Sweatbox didn’t do it. It’s called suspense! :D

    That was classic “I’ve got free candy in my van, kid” stuff. I’d be almost surprised if a streetwise kid like Toad went for that.

    Sweatbox - A ’ FOLK HERO ’ in the MAKING ?
    -——————————————————————————————————————

    Coldsooner : " Doggone I want to like this guy, I realy do
    But it’s just too soon. Kind of a coin toss on how he’s
    going to turn out "

    Slymongoose : " Exactly he may be a really good guy,
    but we just don’t know. I wonder if someone in his
    organization is the naughty one ? "

    cpalneresq : " So maybe Sweatbox in not the villain in the story.I’d find that refreshing !

    Jim Douglas : " They are just making it look that way,

    it’s not what you are thinking "


    Is that a roll out of ‘emotional’ involvement – ’ building ’ there ?
    Phrasings, like ‘blessings’, with many a sympathetic ear
    They really like the character, a shapeshifting move to Folk Hero status ?
    Casting a first shadow of a possible Cult following ?


    A Christophor Dormer kind of thing ? One Glazy Eyed supporter, of the latter, (carried away) said : ‘So proud of you Cris Dormer . . . fighting the fu****g power’.
    We don’t know yet, if Sweatbox’s good or bad, but we’re ‘kinda rooting for him’ !


    And so too in 1944, it had been with Flattop, an unexplained depth of feelings. And Gould and TMS unexpectedly were flooded with flowers, wreaths and telegrams of deep regret. Readers emotionally ‘invested’ in the character, didn’t want the man to go.


    And as you ’ tune in ’ with surprise, to the stired expressions,
    you likely come away thinking this could be a similar phenomena.
    Rare, surprising, highly unusual, but History has had (on occasion), a way of repeating itself

    Check you Florist, you never know the impulse that may hit you ! (?)

    Maybe I’m carried away too . . . ? or
    Is Sweatbox the NEW Flattop ?
