    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.

    Concerning the Wrist Wizard not being around in 2010 when Annie was kidnapped. That was 4 years ago. If Annie is 12 now (and this is pushing it), she would have only been 8 when she was kidnapped. Now we all know years don’t mean anything in the comics. So rather than say Annie was kidnapped 4 years ago, it would most likely be within the past year when it had been invented and she would have known about it. Or, there again, there is more conversation between Tracy and Annie than we made aware of. I am sure somewhere (off panel), Tracy has asked Annie many questions including how long she has been there and how she got there.

    I hope we get an explanation as to why Annie is here to begin with. Just to gather eggs for Prof. Kenyon and take messages back and forth to Axel? She seems content living with the Silos and can go anywhere in Simmons Corners as she chooses. In fact I won’t mind living in that time period rather than what we have today … except to have a Nazi around.
    Surely Axel knows of Warbuck’s wealth and power in getting anything he wants and would stop at nothing to get Annie back. And Tracy doesn’t seem to be limited either. More like a vacation from reality for him. Great story but too many things don’t make any sense.

    If you check out Maeder’s 2003 strip currently shown on GoComics, she looks to be to be in her early teens; however, she could be a healthy 12 year old. Gray’s version appears to be an under feed 11-12 year old. Curtis and Staton’s version is following Gray’s which I like but not looking like she did under Star’s 2010 final panels. That’s why I commented that Daddy would be surprised to see her not looking like she did when he last saw her in 2010.
    I would love to see an Annie strip appear again but kept in the 1940’s like we are seeing in the Tracy story. She seems to belong in that time period.

    I read an interview where Mike stated that they current story would go into September. I, for one, would love to see it go beyond that time period. I am not a fan of Abner Kadaver. I am curious, however, to see the look on Warbuck’s face when he sees his Annie now aged 10-11 when she was a teenager when he law saw her (2010). I do prefer an ageless 10-11 year old Annie rather than seeing her age.
