    Yup, just what I was thinking. Vic is fast becoming more of a liability to Selfy than a help. It won’t surprise me if he’s promoted to VicTim real soon.

    You make a good point, Jim. If the Tracyverse was the “real world,” it would be inundated with conspiracy theories about how Mysta and/or the Lunarians murdered Bellowthon. Even at that, I’m surprised we haven’t heard from Wendy about it.

    And I must say that it always makes my day when Mysta is featured. Love her character.

    I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Posie. This may well have been the introduction to a new story involving Posie and Mysta which will play out after the Selfy situation is resolved. Time will tell.

    That’s some fine analysis, 60sFan! I looked up those old strips, and I think you’re right on target. It’s fantastic to see Joe and Mike reference the way Posie the thug once physically dominated his daughter, and how different that daughter responds to his abuse today. He’ll think twice about messing with her again.

    As Jonathan K. noted, Mysta’s dresses the way moon women typically dress. And not just moon women, because moon men often wear high boots, too. As Gould often explained, not only are all moon women beautiful, they also like to celebrate their beauty. Dressing glamorously is an important part of their cultural ethos, the mythology Gould created, and I’m glad Staton and Curtis respect that. It would be wrong in my opinion if they did not respect it. Besides, moon women can’t stand Earth’s heat. They prefer a naked romp in the snow to cuddling by the fire, which is another reason why they dress on the skimpier side.

     

    Mysta has been transformed into a moon woman, both physiologically and psychologically. The only way she knows how to think now is like a moon woman, and especially like Moon Maid. She literally knows nothing else. For a woman who is biologically like Moon Maid, who is rapidly becoming an identical clone of Moon Maid, and who only thinks like Moon Maid, it’s entirely reasonable that she would dress like Moon Maid. In fact, it’s what we should expect from her. As her transformation nears its completion, it makes sense that she’s dressing like this all the time, just like the original character.

     

    The way Mysta dresses is iconic. It’s a big reason why the original Moon Maid took the comic pages by storm. Dressing in moon fashions is what the fans expect. It’s what they want Moon Maid to look like, just like they want to see Dick Tracy in his yellow coat and hat, and Sam in his green jacket and hat.

     

    Besides all that, Mysta looks fantastic! Joe Staton does a terrific job on her, better in some ways than Gould did. We are so fortunate to have such a skilled artist drawing her. He has created for us a Moon Maid to enjoy. So let’s enjoy her.

    Ha, good one, Pequod!

    Yesterday, Posie crashed into Mysta. Today, the first panel makes it look like the opposite happened. So I guess we can’t really know for sure whether Posie intended to crash her or not. I still tend to think it was deliberate.

    Looks like Mysta skipped wearing her gloves today.

    Others have already suggested this, so I will, too. I’m wondering if Posie works for Bribery.
