    Is Wally still listed as one of their most valuable field agents… or did they find out the truth?

    Well, I am confused. . I must take time to backwash and see what it is about this plot I am missing. See you all later

    Is he going to the topside? or is the security up near the top?

    I think that End town will be along side Maus, if anyone will! I’ve gone back and read it several times. As I have with End town. I have a few other cartoon books, like Gordo, and a few Calvin and Hobbes, but as long as I can buy End town books I will.
    I also have a complete set of “for better or for worse” that I would like to sell as a set, but local buy-back type books stores are not interested.

    one of these days, i’ll have to read mr. spiegelman’s epic work.
    for now, i liken the endtown favorably with another work i consider epic, mary hanson roberts’ “here comes a candle”.

    “Is he going to the topside?”

    Security is the block of rooms between the Topside elevators and the entrance to the main colony. So, Wally has to go up to get down.

    This story line reminds of a quote from the movie V For Vendetta. V speaking: “People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.” Aaron seems to be addressing several current issues in the strip.

    Surfstuff 55 – I hope this was not taken the wrong way. By “creampuff”, I meant that in the flesh, Aaron Neathery is sweet, delightful, gentle and considerate of the feelings of others. I even hugged him once.
    But you’re right: He’s no pushover. When it comes to getting a job done, he’s as strong as iron. The task he is performing with Endtown is Herculean.

    Well, who in Endtown would know what happened?

    Wally’s probably going to see Mallard, who he’s had the most contact with in the government besides Flask, and who has the most clout to find out what’s going on. I suspect Mallard would be as surprised that Holly was arrested, and will want to know why also, especially if he thinks the council might be compromised.

    According to the Fist Full of Beans arc, Mallard’s lab is in the main colony area. Although, he may have a private express elevator to the security floor.

    Gordo! If I had money I’d go looking for some Gordo. A library I used to frequent had a Gordo reprint book from the 1940’s (I’m guessing) that reprinted one strip per page with a different decorative border around each, apparently drawn by the artist. I loved that book.

    re: JA Cox,

    Unfortunately, we’ve made a nasty transition. When I worked in Federal Civil Service, the government was afraid of the reactions of the public. Today that is not the case. Congressmen and Senators that cared about what hte public wanted in the 1980s now “deal with the public” as subjects to be ignored. Most have taken steps to insulate themselves from what the public thinks. That is not healthy for a government that was once the poster child for the Rule of Law.
    .
    Even simple things like the idea of private property have largely disappeared. For example, even a decade ago, it was drummed into federal employees that if you had to go on someone’s private land, you got permission from them first. In the last four years, how many media stories have we heard about arrogant bumblers going onto people’s property with no actual legal right to do so?

    I like the allegory that’s playing out in this story arc. Aaron Neathery is making a quality story
