    Both Stiletta and Venus (through Melies but ordered by Bribery, I assume) contracted Kadaver to kill Tracy. Other contracts were aimed at Apparatus members. We don’t know the late Gunsmoke’s affiliation, but Bribery is clearing the field of competitors. Great to see Bribery on tilt. The third panel is an especially fine rendering of Rikki Mortis.

    Great art. I like how smiling Sam and scowling Armstrong frame the strip, with Rikki and Kadaver in the middle. Lovely Lizz glances over her shoulder as Sam speaks. Sam knows all about leaning on snitches. He put the fear of God into Pouch, as I recall.

    The master of silent storytelling was Lynd Ward. Library of America released an excellent two-volume edition of Ward’s six books: Six Novels in Woodcuts (2010). Art Spiegelman edited and contributes a wonderful introduction, “Reading Pictures.” Ward’s woodcut novels stand the test of time and are highly recommended.

    Nice to see Team Tracy making excellent use of silent panels.

    Evil lurks in shadow, even as Tess and Tracy enjoy the sights on historic Fleet Street. Team Tracy makes such good use of locations. We repeatedly benefit from the satisfying variety of locations in Tracyville and beyond. A few of many favorites that come to mind are the Wilcox Downs racetrack, the old Apollo discothèque converted into Sails’ operating theatre, Kadaver’s subterranean chamber of death traps, the Ace Tower, the Lyric Theatre, the Patterson Playhouse, Goofy Golf, the Aquarium, the Midnite Mirror film set, Cuba, Diet Smith Industries & Complex, and the list goes on and on. Tracy does not spy Kadaver. Has Rikki seen him for the last time?

    Carmageddon! Gunsmoke headin’ to a fast demise
    Thinks he’s Mr. Big Shot. He has seen his last sunrise.
    Romper! Stomper! Here comes Chomper! Menacing and loud
    Makes the Limo a chew toy, draws a morbid crowd
    Gawking at Cheater Gunsmoke, rendered a bag of meat
    Thought that he was living large. His ending not so sweet.
    Lizz and Sam survey the scene. ‘Tis now the coroner’s mess
    Who contracted the big hit? Rikki never shall confess.
    Look to see behind the wheel, a smile so satisfied
    Tricky Rikki deals out death in souped-up deadly ride.
    Assassin Mortis chuckles, yet her smile slowly fades
    Kadaver, stalking Tracy, could soon be in the shade.
    Elsewhere, across the ocean wide, see Tracy on vacation
    Tess and he love to sight-see, yet of danger no cessation.
    Beat the feet on old Fleet Street, soak up rich history
    In dark shadows, unobserved, a menace brave men flee.
    Kadaver stalks the couple. A master of ill will
    Ego drives him to the deed, a contract to fulfill.
    Plot and scheme. Imagine and dream. Dispatch the Great Detective
    For fame and glory Abner strikes. Signed contract his directive.

    Rikki drives
    Taking lives
    Who survives?
    Crunch and munch
    Bunch of lunch
    Ticket punched.

    Cue Rick Wakeman’s album for the anxious stroll along the shoreline. The old Professor has his hands full managing the arduous climb and hot torch. Nice to see Dick and Tess enjoying some down time. It never seems to last too long. Kadaver is much more patient than Lidenbrock.

    Lidenbrock comes rushing home with runic manuscript
    Secret hidden in a code complex and intricate.
    Study and deciphering. No food ‘til code is cracked
    Axel sees the work is good. Naught that Professor lacked.
    Look to see a strange journey to the center of the earth
    Lidenbrock would test himself, discover his true worth.
    Get thee first to Iceland. A volcano ye must find
    Before the Kalends of July, if shade and light are kind.
    Here comes the sun to light the way, the crater they must take
    Axel would rather go back home. His knees begin to shake.
    Look to see a strange journey to the center of the earth
    Following the “Hansback,” of clues there are a dearth.

    Go astray. Lose your way. Acoustics here are strange
    Sounds like Axel’s standing close, yet so far out of range.
    Discovering the cavern, there’s an ocean underground
    Creatures fight between themselves, making a frightful sound.
    Prehistoric bugs and beasts inhabit the coastline
    Ape-like man stands twelve feet tall. We take this as a sign
    To keep our party on the move. To find the passageway
    Cited in the cryptic note. Make a getaway.
    Aided by volcanic blast, dodge magma as we flee
    Ejected to Earth’s surface in southern Italy.
    Look to see a strange journey to the center of the earth
    Born to roam far from our home. Exploration is rebirth.

    It is bothering Honeymoon that something is bothering Mysta. The third panel is especially fine. I agree that the fourth of July Space Coupe sighting was a hint of visitors headed this way.
