    I can’t wait for Moon Maid’s appearance! It’s going to be so moving when she is reunited with her daughter Honeymoon. I hope it will be a Sunday page.

    You do realize this is a clone of Mysta, right?
    This one will have no memory of a daughter.
    And it might get pretty ugly.

    A Tale of Two Phonies

    By Trace Dickens

    It was the best of storylines; it was the worst of storylines.

    In the 1960s, the author of a 1930s science fiction detective comic strip got an idea that was “out of this world”: Let there be people on the moon! Let one of those people find her way to earth! Last of all, let her marry the detective’s (adopted) son!

    Thus, turning an improbable creature into a family member.

    Now, in the 21st century, we find that Mysta, formerly aka the “Moon Maid,” is not a neutral character. You love her or you hate her. That is evident from the posts on this blog – but I do feel as if Mysta “haters” are outnumbered by Mysta “lovers,” quite possibly by two to one.

    Which is, I suppose, the dilemma for Mike and Joe: Bringing back the Moon Maid is sure to lose some readers even though it has already recruited others (myself, included). But to do ill to Mysta’s memory should be just as controversial, possibly losing readers, as well.

    As someone who wants the real Moon Maid back, I take comfort that Mike and Joe began this by giving her a name – so far, they have been far more humane to Mysta than any previous writer, including Gould himself.

    And now, the dilemma for Dick Tracy – and Mysta – fans: We know we’re dealing with at least one phony. Problem is, which one?

    If this Mysta is a clone, that would count as a phony. And I think I’m not alone on this one. There are just too many pleas for Mysta to be real – or at least, as real as a comic strip character from the moon can be.

    But we also know that, from the past, Zy Ghote was a phony, trying to pass off Mumbles as his own clone. Hence, the sudden relevance of the EJ’s storyline – a Mumbles that has since died of natural causes and the reappearance of his partner in crime.

    Hence, my speculation that there is a death trap for Tracy in the pipeline.

    (Yes, I am aware of other posts regarding problems with the Mumbles death storyline)

    But then, we’ve been promised a four month storyline. That’s plenty of time for a Tracy death trap regardless of which one is the phony.

    Who was it yesterday who said that, if this were a “true” cloning, the old Ghote wouldn’t have referred to it as “grunt work.”

    Last, and certainly least: TraderJoe and others have mentioned that only six years have passed since Mysta’s murder. How do we know that?

    I do hope however that the acceleration technology for clones doesn’t mean they also continue to age at the same rate.

    The gentlemen of the strip certainly have put in quite a mystery to this. I’m looking forward to learning more.
