    No, they had smooth fingers that didn’t leave prints. Fingerprints were invented by Dick Tracy.

    I don’t see Alley as shrinking at all. If you notice where his knees are in relation to Dinny’s eyeball, both panels show the same. And Dinny’s scale which is nearest to Alley’s chest is pretty much in the same place. The perspective changes between panels, which makes Alley look smaller, but it’s just a function of distance.

    I for one think the strip has been improving lately. However, I still think there are a lot of loose threads that need to be tied up. Like Lola, who’s been trapped on Earth for years. How about a return trip to Earth2? We barely got to see much of that alternate world. Maybe NASA would like to send a ship to explore it—-hint, hint!

    A more involved plot would have been left hanging…. the Benders are using the KISS principle now.

    @Alexikakos, You are correct, wrong border. Everybody in Moo lives in what will become Texas in the future.

    Who’s the oldest commenter on this strip? briatollah, Carlo Coratelli or WW2 Marine Veteran seem to be in the running.

    Maybe he intends to blame Alley for training his killer attack dinos.

    Given that the dinos are being drugged, will the upcoming War With Moo better be called the “War With Drugs?” This reminds me of the root of our word “Assasin,” which is “hashish.”

    Edison manufactured batteries which have lasted a century already, so maybe they’re recharged by the sun?

    Most people refuse to accept obvious risk to them and their loved ones until it’s too late. In fact, warning them causes them to become paranoid about your own motives. They would rather pick up the pieces rather than prevent something bad from happening. Example: newtown.
