    Kolossal obviously switched Quickdraw with Sparkplug. Clever and stupid at the same time. I’m sure he made lots of money on the race, but he doesn’t think he’s going to get away with this, does he?

    Kolossal is in the shadows, and methinks that is a hint of dark motives.

    “Was there ever a reveal (beyond speculating) as to how they got Mindy to “do” this ?”

    Mindy was kidnapped (as Diet strongly implies in the 10/14/13 strip), so she was not a willing subject for Ghote’s experiments. I imagine this is a big reason why Diet was so horrified to learn the truth about her.

    “Seeing as how Diet BROUGHT Ghote there in the space coupe, how on earth would he not consider it at least a possibility he WAS still on it? Break out those cuffs, Dick…”

    Except, Ghote was shown repeatedly after the landing outside of the Coupe. You’re presuming Diet had no knowledge of this, but that is not clear at all.

    Great work, Pequod77! Thanks.

    I agree with jz27wk, Pequod77, and others. Cover up? Confessing a crime? Mass murder? That’s silly. The Space Coupe was Diet’s property, and he sent it into space to destroy it. That action was consistent with his other actions to destroy all moon technology. Diet says he didn’t know if people had sneaked on board the Coupe — and he still doesn’t. How would anyone be able to prove otherwise?

    There are no grounds here for Tracy to pursue criminal charges against Diet. Sorry to disappoint you guys who seem to think Diet deserves the electric chair, but no prosecutor would touch this. There’s no way Tracy will either.

    Tracy and Diet were thick as thieves back in the day. Not only to discuss Diet’s latest gizmos, because it wasn’t uncommon for the two of them to team up on police work. Case in point, Diet and Tracy were together continuously between June 2 – July 23 1967, fifty-two consecutive days of the strip, as they visited the moon, pursued the Chin Chillars in space, damaged one space coupe and then renewed their pursuit in another.

    It would be nice if they could work out the tensions between them and team up again as friends.

    Snap Krackle Pop, and Vera is still without a clue.

    Nice work, Pequod77! I hope Vera is indeed “all done,” but it sounds like he’s just getting started.

    I was curious about Thistle Dew and looked up a bit of her story, which ran from Jan-May 1963. Here are three panels from Jan. 18, 1963, a day or two after she was first introduced:

    “There have been a couple of indications that she can acquire and indeed is acquiring more moon-people type capabilities, but that doesn’t necessarily mena she is “becoming Moon Maid.” For the answer on that, we will have to wait and see.”

    Sure. I thought I had sufficiently nuanced my argument with uncertainties and the obvious admission that Mysta will never be the 100% original Moon Maid, but perhaps I overstated my case. There is evidence that the transformation is ongoing and will result in more radical changes to Mysta’s genetics, but obviously we’ll need to wait and see exactly where all that is headed.
