    “And who was Adonis working for, anyway?”

    Presumably in partnership with the police (as Tess’s agency has often done), to monitor activity by the Blackhearts.

    Also, excellent poem today, Pequod77!

    After reading feedback from others, I’m now leaning to the idea that T-Bolt is indeed Lee Ebony undercover.

    1) Lee is experienced working undercover stings. See the 10/20/2013 Sunday.

    2) It’s been quite a long time since we’ve seen Lee in the strip, well before Mr. Bigg ever showed up.

    3) I’m thinking the beat down of Johnny Adonis was only to help establish Lee’s cover and wasn’t nearly as severe as it first appeared. This is why Johnny was alive and well in Florida (instead of recuperating in a hospital) and why Tess and others have seemed so unconcerned about his whereabouts and his “injuries.”

    4) Apparently Miss Steffihawk’s hospital visit with Johnny was just a ruse to keep up appearances — in case the Blackhearts were monitoring the police?

    5) The reason T-Bolt/Lee beat up Mumbles and stuffed him in a closet is because he was sniffing around and getting too close to the truth.

    Seems it was the mention of Adonis that set off T-Bolt. Hmmm.

    “Annie seems to be just a piece of furniture. Side kick. Not much character development so far.”

    It’s fair to say Annie is playing the role of sidekick in this story, but I think her character was developed pretty well in her adventure last summer, and even recently in her “girl talk” session with Honey.

    And if she contacts Mysta, will The MCU come a’runnin’ …?


    In that case, I suspect it’s Mysta who’ll come a’runnin’!

    Thanks, Syd. As you mentioned, the air cars were invented by the Moon people and donated directly by the Moon people to the police. Diet was never the go between.

    It’s true that Diet Smith Industries later came up with their own souped up version of the air car (2 man model), but even with those, Diet would have had no right or authority to confiscate the air cars from the police simply because he decided not to produce them anymore. That would be like Ford trying to confiscate all Crown Victoria police cars simply because they no longer produce that model.

    If Bribery really was modeled on FDR, shouldn’t his head be tilt left?

    “I vote “bring back the space coupes”!

    I second that! :)

    I get chills, too, whenever I see Joe has drawn a Space Coupe or moon car. Hearkens back to such an amazing and imaginative and fun period of the strip. All that excitement went away when Moon Maid died, but now it’s back with a vengeance!
