    Staton’s Moon Maid is much more human-looking and Earth-like than Gould’s Moon Maid who obviously had more alien features.
    -—————————————————
    I agree 100%. Back in Gould’s time, it was often said in the strip that “all moon women are very beautiful”. I think that was Gould’s intent. And to be fair, there were times when the original Moon Maid was drawn beautifully. At other times, her features were distorted, especially her eyes. Gould could never get Moon Maid’s eyes quite right in my opinion. Staton on the other hand knows how to draw pretty women. One of his biggest successes with the new Moon Maid is transforming her large moon eyes from being crazy-looking to one of her biggest assets. Very lovely. You can see the big improvement with Honeymoon, too, who also had weird eyes back in the day, as in the scenes you posted.

    Excellent closeup of Honeymoon in the second panel. Joe Staton captured her 12-year-old anxiety perfectly. Also, Mysta’s quite the cutie pie in the first panel.

    I agree! There are lots of intense emotions today, and it makes us care even more about the characters, which is a very good thing. So enjoyable!

    Wonderful scene of older sis comforting younger sis as “Mom” looks on!

    I’m hoping this new story ties in with the Blackhearts.

    Finally we get to meet the other Blackhearts boss, and you’re right, Apollo is pretty cocky and arrogant. Nice to see “Venus’ back”!

    Thanks, Willy! Your post also reminds me how long it’s been since we’ve seen Mysta. Hope the story gets back to her soon!

    I love these crossovers!

    I’m enjoying the longer stories, including this one. It’s an improvement over the briefer affairs we had a few years ago, which were always entertaining if a bit hurried at times. I’m just pinching myself that Dick Tracy is this good after being so bad for so long! Joe and Mike were very deserving of a 2nd Harvey Award! I’m also hoping we get back to Mysta again soon.

    I agree, Jonathan K. and Gweedo. Staton has turned Lizz into such a cutie!
