    Please note that Honeymoon called Sparkle “mom.”

    What the HECK is with this daily colorist??? On May 8 Gertie had white hair and Sparkle and Jewel had brown hair… then May 28 all three had honey blonde hair (like Sparkle and Honey today) but today Jewel has red hair like her dad’s?!?

    I’m with you on that. I’m just glad I wasn’t the one to bring it up this time. :)

    I’m a little perplexed about the change that’s come over Honeymoon. I’ve read others discuss it, and now I’m seeing it, too. We’ve witnessed a number of scenes of Honey in her room with the big “Mom” picture, we recall the certainty she expressed in the Space Coupe that her mother was alive and how she was going to prove it, and we saw how she organized her friends and sent them out to track Moon Maid’s appearances, presumably to prove her hypothesis. Now she seems to have distanced herself from all that. Treating Mysta with skepticism, using their meeting to cooly gather evidence, the detached reference to “this Moon Maid” — it’s baffling. She said to Mysta, “I still don’t think you’re my real mother, you know.” Actually, I didn’t know that. When was it ever signaled to us that Honeymoon is convinced Moon Maid is not her mother? I know as a Tracy she has to be a good detective, but all of her instincts were pointing one way before, and now suddenly they’re pointing the other way?

    Well, I hope I don’t get told, “If I don’t like the coloring why do I frequent this site”… lol but the Star has the coloring done correctly. Jewel’s hair matches her half sister’s color. I just wish they would get it right here too! I LOVE the way Staton drew Jewel in today’s strip. Cute hair style, and she looks so lovable.

    There is no “correct coloring” on a daily strip.

    Stressful situations can sometimes clarify one’s thoughts. Reality has clashed with her fantasy, and now she knows who “mom” really is!

    You’re wrong, Mark – there is correct coloring on a daily strip, just as on the Sunday strip.

    The colors on recurring characters has to be consistant.
    If you’re blonde on Sunday, you’re blonde all week long – as Jewel should be.
    (And please, no lame Clairol jokes.)

    It’s one thing for Honeymoon to be looking for her mother, but it’s something else when someone claiming to be her mother shows up at the door.
    Honeymoon has good reason to be distrustful, if only because, if she really were Mysta, why hadn’t she come to see her daughter first, before making appearances throughout the city?

    Good point!

    It’s 8 AM in the Junior Tracy household, and breakfast is not the happiest meal for Junior, who is manning up for his kids, nor for Honeymoon and Jewel (—bless her little heart!), who miss and are worried for their Mom, the one who raised them, nurtured them, and loved them all their years….
    I hope Sparkle is found and returns soon. In the meantime, Clone-Moon Maid has a lot to answer for, and could end up, if she lives, in prison. I believe that the real Mysta’s behavior would not be so looney (pardon the pun)….

    I agree with Willy007 that Honeymoon’s change in attitude is perplexing. The shift from believer to skeptic is unexplained and unexpected. Also inexplicable is Sparkle’s dirt nap. Mysta has been thwarting criminals on the street for some time with nary a mention of lasting ill effects. I suppose it is necessary for Sparkle to slumber until the truck reaches its destination, as this will serve the subplot.

    Mysta is clearly not a clone, as a clone would be about six years old, while having no need for facial surgery. We know that Ghote and Sail are charlatans, so what was the “grunt work” performed by Ghote and how, exactly, is Sail “in charge” of Mysta? What we know about Lunarian physiology is that they have extensive longevity, extraordinary powers—both physical and mental—and are impervious to extreme temperatures. What we don’t know about Lunarian physiology is a lot. What would be unnatural or impossible for a human may be standard biological functioning for a Lunarian. Mysta’s physical recover appears complete (and how!). Is her mental recovery still a work in progress?
