Basically, I agree with you. There are many comics that I used to read for a while, but then I quit reading them. In fact I am about to drop several from my queue right now, including Agent Gates, because they simply aren’t doing anything for me. But I treat Alley Oop differently because I have such fond memories of it from my childhood and youth and seriously want it to improve. If my comments annoy you, please recognize the fact that they don’t annoy everyone, and simply ignore them.
