    So many things are being made clear so quickly. And yet, this story continues to fascinate!

    Um, someone saw iron sticking to your fingertips?

    Also, a thumbs-up to Jim Doherty’s Crimestoppers Textbook. Always a wonderful addition to the Sunday strip, especially today.

    Fade to black…great job team Tracy. Kudos on the art and story line. The plot thickens.

    Honeymoon’s on her laptop, sleuthing late at night
    Perusing “Weirdness of the City,” a favorite web site.
    Legends and tall-tales concerning Moon Maid’s baby
    Mostly wild speculation, yet some facts and maybe
    Something here select few could ever guess or know
    Fingertips magnetic, a skill she did outgrow.
    Neither Pop Pop nor Dad would ever speak of this
    So to find it on the internet means something is amiss.
    Is this another clue that Mother Mysta is alive?
    Had she passed though fire with a slim chance to survive?
    Moon people are not Earthlings, this she knows full well
    Secrets of physiology? Mysteries none could tell?
    Gossip on the internet, she never could combat
    This fact about her fingers: How would anyone know that?
    Sleep soon overtakes her: nocturnal vivid dreams
    Walking with her mother, not all as it seems.
    Mysta struggles with emotions, pointing to the sky
    Says, “I am not an Earthling, and can’t so easily die.
    Look for me to find you; we’ll be together soon
    Separation ceasing beneath a waning moon.”

    A nice evocative page turning move of the story with mood and shadows. Excellent Sunday.

    Magnetic fingertips?!
    Holey Moley!
    I vaguely remember her having some kind of power a long time ago! (But that was a long time ago!)
    I love this story, revealing a little each day, heavy on characterization, and with Joe’s fantastic art!

    And an especially timely Crimestoppers. Recent events in Boston have proven again that the police – be they university, transit, local, state, or federal – are always willing to put themselves between us and danger.

    @Pequod77

    Your comments are always a good read, but it’s been a little while since your last poem. Thank you for this latest addition.

    Who would know, indeed? Maybe anyone who saw the live news reports done from the Moon by Junior during the Moon Era, including one about the birth of Honeymoon and demonstrating her magnetic fingers to two worlds. See any of the strips in September of 1965…news cameras EVERYWHERE. Who would know? Try just about anyone and everyone.

    Staton, you’ve still got it! Awesome strip!

    My thoughts exactly. Nothing to add except Good Morning Vista Bill, wherever you are.

    Interesting possibility that Clone-MM herself posted that comment (though as idesama observes, anyone old enough and with a good memory might have).
    Good analysis, too, by Tommygunner. It will be interesting to see how the tale of Clone-Moon Maid works itself out….

    Good catch. Perhaps the change is intentional on Team Tracy’s part, so that in the modern retelling of Honeymoon’s origin only a relatively few people (immediate family members?) know about the magnetic fingers. That’s certainly implied in today’s strip — Honeymoon’s magnetic powers are NOT common knowledge. In the world of comics, it’s fairly common for new creative teams to tweak origin stories (as happened in Batman, multiple times in Superman, and even in the recent retelling of Tracy’s origin). Most fans are pretty understanding when new creative teams exercise their artistic license to make such tweaks. As far as I know, that’s all that’s happened here, and while I understand it’s a change, I don’t think it’s a big deal.

    Great thoughts, Tommygunner. Also nice poem, Pequod. Today’s installment is crazy good entertainment. Thank you Joe Staton and Mike Curtis!
