    It must have taken a small miracle to get Al Capp’s estate to let Mike use Fosdick.
    For which we are grateful.

    But HOW could they lift a finger to Refuse (?) …


    What with the “likeness” of Dick Tracy all over Li’l Abner’s comic pages ! ?

    “You have the right to remain silent . . .
    Give my Ears a Break and Do So ! "


    Some ‘timely’ LIP there from Lizz !


    Perhaps the old ‘memory’ is fading.(/) . . .
    But can’t recall her ‘saying/doing’ anything of much greater note or consequence in recent times ? ?
    What comes to mind - was her gracious ‘Stepping Down’; as Chief to allow a Patton return


    But, I guess she’s had to take a “back seat” during T – Bolt’s front page “Filibusters”(?) when the latter (Lee Ebony) disguised, ‘sucked up’ all the oxygen in the strip for several months (. . . including Top of the Team “Martial Arts” recognition*!* :-)


    But to give Mike and Joe their “JACKETS- T – Bolt’s a truly ‘memorable’, their Best “Character Creation” . . . one, that only takes a 2nd Place to the inlmitable - Doubleup !!


    Pity she’s just a Disguise and not an “Original” in her own right !

    Yesterday you queried . . .


    “As I looked over the 1967 strips I wondered why the Chin Chillars thought that hiding out at Piggy’s farm was a good idea? With a vehicle like the Space Coupe you can get to any place in the world in minutes . . .”
    -————————————————-


    My ‘recall’ from the time, was that the Silos on that farm bore a “strong physical resemblance” to an upright Space Coupe, thereby creating a near natural disguise (or camouflage) for their Space Craft !


    Additionally, that City was “Home”, and instinctively (if safe) they preferred to be there (?)
    Further, that it likely belonged to a farmer they had ‘no idea’ that it was actually the HQ of gangster Piggy Butcher

    In the midst of today’s reader reflection on past events and the pleasing poetic comments . . .
    Joe Staton hits the Teams Sunday page out of the Park with his solid black rendition of Notta in panel 5 !


    Take a long look at those beautifully ‘stretched’ eye-lashes – and savor the entire composition of the panel !


    While the “close up” of Purdy’s face (above) - his closed eyes - continues to remind us that since his modern return, he hasn’t “seen” anything . . .
    But that long ear seems to ‘signal’ - that he might well be “hearing” and recalling all that’s being said ! (?)


    I’d think it’s ‘time’ now - for Purdy to return to LIFE and take part in events.
    Would be unfortunate if he continued to appear ‘near dead’ in his wheel chair ! Frozen forever in silence, and unable to take part in any event !

    HIS FACE LOOKS LIKE ??


    I think we already KNOW . . .
    From his stint back in prison (Oct. 10, 2013) when we saw his unvarnished FACE at Rikki visit to ‘tell’ him of his upcoming ‘prison break’ !


    Hardly ‘think’ the Authorities would allow disguises or cosmetics in prison ! ?
    So my take IS, we were seeing the Raw Cabbage back then ! ?


    The more recent (look -a-like) *Mask*left on the table, during his visit to the Bathroom must have been a “Double-Fake” - to suggest that the “real” face looked otherwise.
    ?


    Not ‘aware of any promise by Mike, to *’show’* his real face at some future event ? ? ?


    ABNER KADAVER In Prison (Oct 10, 2013) REAL FACE HERE - NO ‘Disguise’ Allowed*!*

    WALKING DISTANCE” . . .
    “Especially seeing that she’s carrying a load of laundry.”

    All Sound, Logical conclusions . . .


    And I’m not going to speculate that she is taking a Cab :-)

    GOOD SHOW - Willy007 …


    Those panels from 1967 with Piggy Butcher … certainly help to throw a useful perspective on the ‘useful’ adaptable “foibles” (if I can ‘call’ them that ;-) of Notta Chin Chillar to navigate through life !

    " I agree that Blaze needs to get away from Notta,. . ."
    -————————————————————-


    I thought she was there - because she ‘wanted’ to be ! (?)


    Her precise ROLE in the ‘affair’ really seems to raise some Questions … ?


    Particularly as the ‘Transgender Scenario’ seems very ‘Topical’ at the moment . . .


    Has Blaze been “rising” to the occasion ?? (no pun intended)


    It may all be accidental (?) but certainly seem “timely” (indeed, ‘Spot On’) given the flow of real time events !

    Meeting again in the Laundromat by Chance ?
    Must have been a well planned, but “STOICAL. . . Wait ?


    But what really “fascinates” me is the distinct change in the shape of Lee Ebony’s head whenever she takes on her T Bolt ‘persona’ ?


    Gone are the “curves” on the upper head . . . replaced (somehow?) by ‘sharp’ edges ?
    Were I in the “complimentary” assistance business - (like others here, on occasion) I’d probably ‘speculate’ that she’s wearing a WIG?


    And her “out of character” accent to the Top of the Martial Arts position in the MCU - seems something of a ‘downer’ for Lizz ! (?)


    Yet in a “changing” World leading positions Come and Go !
