    Rechecking this, I see that he is holding his hand against a window; thus, what we see is NOT his finger nails but the pressing of his 5 fingers against the window. Oh, well, case ALMOST solved!

    Case of the Missing Finger Nails: Check out the final panel of Annie on 6-13-2010, the final Annie strip. Daddy Warbuck is holding up his right hand and we see his finger nails; however, they are appearing on the wrong side of his hand. Case solved! Couldn’t figure out how to post the picture; perhaps someone can.

    I also have a bad feeling about Kenyon’s formula. Why are they allowing him to finish it there? Why not take it back to a more safe location to test it? Will there be a big explosion at the end? And send someone back in time?

    Annie doesn’t say she remembered Axel from 1944. Axel tells her of a time travel that ended them in 1944. Annie then sees Axel is alive again from the last time she saw him (no date given) and she explores the town and sees it looks like it would have in 1944 or thereabouts. In other words, she knew Axel from the past and now he is trying to convince her that they all have traveled back in time to 1944. Doesn’t mean she was around in 1944 (real life, yes, comic life, no).

    No action in today’s strip but I loved it! I think that was (and is) what so good about Annie .. she makes you feel good and ready to face another day! Would love to see her adventures start up again by a good artist and writer like we have in Dick Tracy. And keep her young and innocent and the center of the storyline like Gray did, not a secondary character like she seems to become in later years by other writers.

    It’’s good to see communication with the Silos rather than just wisking Annie (and Tracy) away without any knowledge of why she will soon suddenly disappear from the island. Will Simmons Corners and its residents remain on the island after the story ends? The workers should return home but what about the Silos? Is there another Simmons Corners where they will be returned to? Annie lived with them a few years earlier in comic time (not 1944) so it would not be on this island since it was deserted in 1944. Great story that I am NOT ready to see end unlike a few other readers but a lot of loose ends that need to be cleaned up.

    Would love to see my alltime favorite, Johnny Hazard, there to help out. He fly many planes during his 33 years in existence from 1944 to 1977. Frank Robbins was an expert on them.

    May I add my congratulations to Team Tracy! I agree that the current story might/should get them 3 in a row next year. However, one thing that bothers me with “recruiting” a whole town full of people from construction crews: wouldn’t their familes know that they went to this location and then disappear? Axel might hypnotize the workers but not their family and friends back home. They would be calling the authorities to check it out. I would have preferred the time travel theory with all the townpeople disappearing back to 1944 when it was all over. But I have enjoyed it and hate to see it end.

    “if” Tracy has gone back to the past or “if” Simmon Corners has been brought to the future, Tracy’s front page interview would be appearing in a 1944 newspaper. Be interesting for Tracy to go the the state archieves of that state when he returns home and see if can read it from a microfilm of the 1944 papers of Simmon Corners. At least he should purchase a paper while there and bring it home. Be an interesting keepsake.
