    But seriously, you think she would have given up driving, considering…

    “How did she learn to drive?” Makes no sense if she’s just a clone, right?

    BAM!

    Yesterday I ate a whole box of Sparkle Zap. I don’t think I’ll be sleeping for a week.

    Does anyone know if they put these DT strips in comic/book form

    Evidently either Mysta can start a car without keys or Retik’s wrong and there is more than one set of keys.

    Look to the right of these comments if you’re reading the desktop version of the page. The book “Calling Dick Tracy” is available now as an ebook at rabbitholecomics.com.

    Anyone getting the idea that “they” think shes a clone but Moon Maid may have a few surprises for them?
    As I see it the possibilities run about like this:

    1. Shes not a clone but somehow the real thing. (Hard to believe the Tracy’s would be that bad of eye witnesses.)

    2. She’s a mental case plastic surgery fake that knows so much about Mysta (fan girl?) that she’s “remembering” Mysta’s past. (So how’d they make the horns?)

    3. She really is a clone but Moon DNA is .. different. And somehow transmits memories along with basic life code.

    Retik raises some interesting, but merely diversionary, questions. Clone-Moon Maid has done it, and that’s what matters. The question is, will her genetic programming hold up, or will she degenerate mentally and physically?

    Good morning all…

    Mysta probably jump started the car with her “shazams”! You guys can figure out how she learned to drive!

    Jim Douglas: How to reconstruct these strips as a “comic book”:


    On Windows 7, it’s easy: Just use the “Snipping Tool” to save the daily strips, then use Paint or any other photo editor to paste the strips back together.


    It’s what I am doing!


    Windows XP or Vista, you may have to use the old Print Screen button – and a lot of “cropping” in Paint – quite possibly the same for Windows 8.


    Unfortunately, due to the many many changes in Windows 8, I’m not at all sure how to do many of the basic things we’re used to in older versions of Windows.

    Short comments today – weekends are my busiest days of the week:


    Mysta knows how to drive? Apparently, Retik and Stellaluna were told that Mysta was a clone; therefore, they expected everything she “knows” to have been “implanted” memories (as certain other readers have been commenting). At this point, we have to throw that idea out!


    As to how Mysta got the keys, (one), how does Retik know that there are only one set of keys? And, of course, (two), we know that Mysta has “powers,” perhaps a more “romantic” solution.


    Again, if Retik and Stellaluna were lied to (about Mysta being a clone), then they, too, might not really believe in her “powers,” either…


    I think today’s strip is to begin to eliminate other possibilities, such as “cloning.” (After all, a “clone” Mysta would be pretty much “useless” to the strip after this rather lengthy “teaser” session – going back to, what was it, August 2012?)


    Nevertheless, I think Mysta has done something that really betrays our trust in her – what has come to be known as the “Sparkle Zap.” How this will be resolved is, as yet, very unclear.


    The only thing today’s strip really clarifies is that our “good doctors” are even bigger dirtbags than we have already been led to believe!

    You should be arrested for “quotation mark” abuse…

    At least two possibilites for “how Mysta learns to drive”…1) she’s the real thing and remembers how to drive because she learned it before her “death”, 2) she’s a “fake” who believes she’s Mysta, and her driving skills are from her original brain (along with English and other basic non-personal experiences), 3) she’s a much faster learner than Retik suspects and learned to drive…well enough…from watching Retik.

    Her memories included watching others drive and her handlers. She made use of that knowledge. How did she get past Retik? How did she get the keys? What other powers are she using she hadn’t before?
