    I can’t understand why some of you are having such trouble with this story. I find it very entertaining.

    P.S. Thank you also for the great overview of Mysta’s development and how it corresponds to Moon Maid’s history. Great pics, too. I’m not sure which I enjoyed more, your poetry or prose. I loved them both!

    Gracious, Pequod77, your poem today is wonderful. Let me add my hearty praise to the others who have already sounded off. Your affection for Mysta is downright contagious, not that I needed any encouragement in that direction. I enjoyed this part especially:

    Not all of her changes appear on Diet’s chart
    Compassionate and caring, she’s grown a tender heart.
    Open to what tomorrow brings, changes slow or soon
    Protective to the marrow of her dear friend, Honeymoon.
    Few would have seen it coming, inexorable genetic drift
    Mysta’s rebirth ongoing, a supremely miraculous gift.
    Some beauty is just skin deep: a pretty surface masking dross
    Mysta gorgeous to the core with the strength to bear her cross.


    Yes! Mysta is not only evolving physically into Moon Maid, but her soul is transforming as well. We’ve seen evidence of this change even since she was introduced. First she was scheming to get Junior back and attacking Sparkle, and later we saw her defending Sparkle and affirming that Junior belongs to her. Afterward, instead of isolating herself from the Tracy family and becoming bitter, Mysta has embraced her new role as Honeymoon’s “aunt” and is showing genuine concern and heartfelt affection for her young protege. The idea of Honeymoon maturing into a second Moon Maid is exciting, too! Regardless, Mysta is evolving into a selfless, compassionate, noble and magnificent person. Like you well said, she has become “gorgeous to the core.”

    I agree! Exciting development today. Love the moon revival, we need more of it!

    I almost didn’t check Dick Tracy today. Am I glad I did!! This is fantastic news. We kind of knew something was happening with Mysta, but to get confirmation like this that she’s transforming or evolving or whatever is just great. This gives me much hope for the future of Mysta and the moon people. I’m hoping we’ll end up with a “virtual” Mysta, reborn through modern genetics and magical moon DNA. It won’t be the impossible outcome I was hoping for, the original Moon Maid back from the dead, but I will still be a very happy camper.

    A very classy tip of the hat by Team Tracy. Happy Birthday, Dick Locher!

    I like how Staton shows characters in shadows whenever something “shady” is going on, like when someone is giving a confession/explanation about a potential crime that’s been committed. I’m thinking of the recent interview with Diet about the missing space coupe.
