    Cory is well past 80. he looks pretty decent for his age.

    And one is basically a repeat of yesterdays “how long do we have to wait” panel.

    s Tom Batiuk ghost writing today? The odd, unnatural phrase “you seem kinda gray” to set up the gag- very much like TB at his worst.

    Dark Horse has published the first two books of Alley Oop, which is billed as the “Complete Alley Oop Sunday strips”. Book 2 gets into the very first time travel story.

    Back in the days when creators really had to deal with the dilemma of daily / Sunday papers, different artists had different solutions. Some, like Hamlin on Oop, had separate story lines. Others, like Crane ion Buz Sawyer, generally used Sunday as a gag strip. Still the majority, like Caniff on Terry /Canyon, integrated both into a single story. One of the more impressive use of this technique is Leonard Starr with Mary Perkins On Stage. There is usually a single panel on Sunday that is nearly identical to a panel in the following week. I say nearly because the composition is siimilar but the dialogue is always different. There are a number of reprint books out there that can show how an integrated story line does not have to be cut-and-past. It might help to understand why so many of us are frustrated with the Benders’ lack of effort.

    Even the Benders used to do a separate story on sundays until the workload was just too much for 80+ year-old Jack. The lazy B’x had cut down on number of panels and backgrounds and increased used Photoshop to help with the art. The last piece of the puzzle was to cut out one day of work by turning Sunday / Monday into a rehash / “preview”.

    What I like is when Ooola puts on the wig, her eyes suddenly look the same.

    I hate to break it to you, FB1, but both Parker and Hart have been dead for years. Much like Oop, the strip hasn’t been handled as well by the strip’s caretakers.

    We need the recap to remind us how bad Jack’s art is. It’s safe to say that he has finally reached the nadir that describes Carole’s writing ability.

    Reading today’s strip, I couldn’t help but laugh. Its gets more hackneyed every single day.
