    Kadaver has a contract he’s paid richly to fulfill
    Tracy’s gun is all jammed up, Abner wields a blade to spill
    Blood from the Detective, yet quickly he’s disarmed
    A shot from out of nowhere, swordless but unharmed.
    Absorbing a right hand roundabout, Abner seems to stagger
    Reaches in his long black cloak, reveals a shiny dagger.
    Slashing in desperation, he makes a fatal lunge
    Tracy drops down to the ground, Abner takes a nasty plunge.
    All that’s left atop the vat is a headless, floating hat
    Tracy reaches out to help; won’t swim again in that.
    Nearby there’s a helper, someone has his back
    Tracy never fired, the crack shot is Blackjack
    Who relishes a challenge: harming family’s not his style
    Made use of a souvenir, rescued hostages with a smile.
    Tricky Rikki’s vanished; Kadaver’s out of sight.
    Did he perish in the mess or could it be he might
    Have again cheated the Reaper in the face of certain death?
    An escape hatch in the vat of goo or lifeless without breath?

    Thanx for revealing her to us. I didn’t know.
    I don’t see how Kadaver could escape that particular trap. So unless someone can resurrect the dead Kadaver has become the genuine article aka cadaver.

    For those who really want to know, there’s an excellent series of Mary Perkins reprint books. Somewhere between a soap and an adventure strip, it follows Mary from small-town hopeful to established actress, set against realistic 50s-60s Broadway and Hollywood. The artist, Leonard Starr, eventually retired the strip and launched an excellent revival of Little Orphan Annie (another team succeeded him; they recently ended the strip).

    I have a feeling Kadaver will show up again. He’s too good an antagonist for Tracy.

    Great rhyme, Pequod77. Thank you. And I really like the panel today that shows Abner’s top hat floating on the wet cement. Is this the last we’ll see of him?
