I surmised yesterday that I was the only defender of Vera. Looks like, today, I was right. No one likes him..I’m not even sure that Mike is going to cut him any slack..The surprise here, as others have noted, is that Mysta has no memory of Sawdust!.Proof positive that, whatever Mindy is becoming, it is not the original Moon Maid!.Reiterating what I said yesterday, though I am Vera’s only defender, I will also be the first to say that a Vera-Mindy pairing would not do well for either character in this strip..If Vera ends up with Mindy, look for both characters to go on extended, if not indefinite, hiatus from the strip!.What I’d like to see:.Mysta’s new role in Honeymoon’s life causes such discomfort for Sparkle that she (Sparkle) distances herself from her step-child and husband….Perhaps another round of Sounds-a-Plenty to help feed Sparkle’s own star fever….(Where I’m absolutely unsure that Mike would indulge me) A revelation that Vera did not cheat on Sparkle, as Fletcher-Collins implied, as they artificially drove a wedge between them….No, I’m not necessarily trying to drive Mysta back with Junior. Among other things, today’s strip verifies, once and for all, that Mindy is not Mysta, nor is she becoming her!.But it would be nice to “right” a former “wrong” in the development of Vera Alldid’s character.
