    On Thunder Island, ‘neath crescent moon, Tracy walks his beat
    Must confer with Annie, their business kept off the street.
    Missus Silo nods and winks, understands a schoolgirl crush
    Annie adept at subterfuge, yet hates this pretend mush.
    Slipping away to hatch a plan, they ascend to balcony
    To once again sneak out a missive may be their destiny.
    Annie loves her root beer roll, this gamble may get sticky
    To fool old evil Axel requires stealth most tricky.
    Elsewhere in the city, look to see Charlie Hotshot
    Charles C. Charles is in charge, quite rare the moxie he’s got.
    Pipe smoke wafting overhead, a favor’s been called in
    No welsher is Hotshot Charlie, he aids friends with a grin.
    A frequent flier of daring-do, he’ll soon take to the air
    Who hath called on Charlie? To fly why, when and where?

    Jim’s Crimestoppers Textbook is always a treat, but a special thank you to whoever it was that added the Harold Gray note!

    Pequod77, when are you going to collect and publish these?

    Annie’s white glowing eyes are hilarious.

    Keep looking back at the strip. This time, appreciating Annie’s eyes & Tracy’s hat in the dark theater. You gotta love Joe’s style!

    Another great poem, Pequod77. And it appears we have another crossover from different strip. I am not familiar with Mr. Charles. Is he from Terry and the Pirates as mentioned by
    DoctorWho55?

    Who is that in the last panel?

    Not sure but the picture picture next to him looks like Steve Canyon and the name of one of the characters in Terry and the Pirates was Hotshot Charlie. So that last panel may be a homage to Milton Caniff.

    Well Terry and the Pirates did have Hotshot Charlie (Charles C. Charles) and the picture next to him looks a lot like Steve Canyon. On a side note near the end of the its run Steve Canyon would have Steve dream he was in an earlier war.

    One of the longer sequences I still remember was Steve Canyon dreaming of being in the Great War. Strangely his knowledge of the future in the story varies; he talks about the Nazis after seeing a Swastika painted on an American plane and yet later has a total non reaction to meeting Adolf Hitler. The story ends as did many of his dream sequences with someone being shaken awake which was actually Steve being shaken awake in the real world.
