    Here’s what Moon Maid originally thought of Earth fashions:

    For now, he’s preferred to sit on his “throne” and give orders. His head’s straighter lately because he isn’t feeling so cocky.

    There was a time in the original Bribery story when he had literally lost everything (including his shrunken head collection). His leaping and dancing mood completely reversed and he was equally flamboyant in his whining and crying.

    Perhaps we’re about to get a real caper with a classic Tracy villain – Mumbles – Still Da Man!

    I am hoping Mumbles lives to go against Tracy again. He is such a popular character that he has been retconned and brought back several times in the strip…once as an old and broken man.

    And especially, we’ll never know how he came to look like the man-in-the-moon.

    I am hoping to learn the answer to that as well…and why he always had that poster in his office.


    Perhaps he was very old and in his younger days was the actor who played the role in the original film.

    The original didn’t always dress in Moon fashions, but she did much of the time. The only thing is that now there are no people at Moon Valley to create fashion trends, and they couldn’t contact if they were there. I’m sure you’ll see Mysta in various outfits as the occasion warrants, but this situation calls for the traditional outfit.

    Bribery was one of the longest running of Gould’s villains. I don’t see Mike and Joe bringing him back just to be killed again or apprehended so quickly. After all, we haven’t even seen him sing (or dance?) yet. Although I speculated some time ago that he may be in some Davros-like state.

    We still have to see the Intro(?) of Nah Tay’s brother. So don’t count out Bribery yet.

    He would have made an excellent globe in a trophy case, but that doesn’t seem to be in the offing.

    Melies’ shrunken head would look like a tennis ball in a jar.

    Where did that name come from anyway ?

    Read Moby Dick. It’s a whale of a name.

    Another brilliant poetic synopsis.

    Gonna be a Sunday Shoot-Out…

    I just hope that Tracy doesn’t shoot and kill everyone before we learn why Mysta was created and what the importance of returning to the moon is.
