    Matt, Do you think it may be DLisagenius - reappearing under a new cloak ?

    It’s not MY theory ghurab . . .
    Just pointing out ONE oF “multiple” choices the Authors have at their disposal on the Idenity !

    Simple !
    She ’ prefered ’ to DRIVE her own car, wouldn’t - you ?
    So she started her’s * – nearest* the door before starting Tracy’s to ’ free up ’ the Driveway.
    That sounds like A-B-C if you’re trying to find a way to bring her back.

    What say you ?. __

    Don’t give me any CREDIT * – Gweedo !*
    -
    It’s all DUE to Mike Curtis (with a suggestion from Jim Doherty ?) - with Tracy as a ‘Uniformed Officer ’ before he was a Detective.
    A " professional " JOB !
    Made me realize how EASY it can be to change comic strip history as long as you add to what’s there and don’t contradict any “clear” facts.
    More power to Mike Curtis !

    Sunday strips that were RECAPS was a Locher / Kilian " invention " ! ;-)

    It was Officer Rodriquez who saw her step IN a car, and because of the driveway stiuation Tess had suggested Moon Maid use their car ! So readers (and those inside) automatically_**assumed**_ THAT was the car she first started ! ??
    A " back story " could change that - (not unlike Tracy being first a Uniformed Officer)
    ‘Coincidentally’, as she started ANOTHER car - the nearby car, with the BOMB exploded !
    It’s an alternative scenario ! Moon Maid might have suffered a "**loss** of memory . . . and wandered off ! ?
    -Officer Rodriguez was thrown in the air and on his back. Very badly shaken ! Dazed, holding his head ! Possibly, even CONFUSED as to exactly what happened (?)
    No one – including Tracy, other than a shaken Rodriguez was seen to witness the event !

    Bit of a contradiction here !
    It could be that Tracy has ’ rephrased ’ HIS recollection (?) of the explosion - in a manner to CONVINCE * – Honeymoon* that -"your Mother Mystra was in the Car when it exploded. I SAW it all ! . . . "
    -
    He didn’t " SEE " the event . . . he was SLEEPING (‘ZZZ- ZZ’) on a Couch inside, when the BOMB exploded. - – - The sound woke him up ! He sat up, and blurted out - – - " Ye Gods " !
    (Sun 8-6-78 and Mon 8-7-78)
    -
    Moon Maid was depicted (as above) starting a car = but, there’s no certainty she was IN Tracy’s car when the bomb there -WENT OFF’.Although that may have been the original intention ! She may have been starting another Car. when inadvertently the bomb in a nearby car - exploded ! ?
    This leaves a Writer some " elbow room " to construct a way to have her survive, were he to SO inclined !
    In fact, MM’s lower face “bandages”(?) LENDS itself to that sort of ’ explanation ’ ! ?

    As I read today’s strip it occured to me that the " mood" it created in the uncertainties of the current Moon Maid sitings . . .
    SIMPLY made it a Classic !
    That’s the warm POSITIVE that hit me !
    Wasn’t searching for a GoComics colorist’s mistake on the side of Junior’s head to Kick the Strip in the Shins !
    If one had given Locher’s work that depth of scrutiny, we would have wondered WHY his Junior Tracy always kept looking OFF MODEL - - and like someone else ?
