G. M. O. T.?
There’s a new one on me.
Can’t say there’s nothing new there.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (49) 10/6/2017 Friday
The ISS Free-Enterprise comes out of “warp” then re-orientates for the next leg of its journey then is gone instantly into the distance. (There are some areas it is better to go around than through. Because of the way the FTLD is designed, time doesn’t pass compared to inside the ship in transit so hours for them are just minutes or even seconds out of "warp.)
Alley has to be careful he isn’t spotted. He can hardly explain why their Exo-Cultural Anthropologist is poking around in an engineering access tube on E deck. Alley had to let his other self, that Hamlin offshoot of his mind to do the sabotage while he listens and hopes no one sees or inquires. Takes off a panel that gains him the circuitry and carefully splice and insert the mostly tubular device between the points and reactivate it then close the panel and slide out.
And slide out of the J tube and started walking just as someone came in the corridor. Alley got into the nearest lift tube and went back to his office-lab. “Close one.”
Sounds a whole lot like ”Barsoom.”

Once the device turns on it follows a set pattern, and speed. Beezie wants to go, but must wait for it to finish so that she can open up the locked file drawer. There, done! She pulls it out turns it off and into a pocket as she zips through the sparse files till she finds a yellow one with “Operation Luggnagg” on it.She decides to make digital copies on her special phone Arkness gave her. Then placed the folder back and shut the file drawer. Out side Henri was busy giving the bum’s rush to the confused cyborg who simply walked away just as Beezlebub came out of that office.
“Clearz.” Henri replied, a sheen of sweat on his forehead.
“Where Glass Eagles Dare”
“Allez, he’s got me!” Ooolalaz shouted to Oop-Allez as the Grand Mufti summons his giant glass birds.

I guess this is a new wrinkle Carole is introducing. So the hunters make that sound? Kinda like a duck call maybe? Farzoon is definitely something new, never before mentioned in the Oop saga.
Do you think Alley might be pulling one over on Mentis?
Big, brave Mentis, with all his ideas, has to hide behind Alley…
There’s a strange kind of light and shadow on Mentis’s face in panel 1. In panel 2, like Gweedo says, he is hiding behind Alley with all the color scared right out of his face.He lookes as though he’s a vampire sneaking up behind his victim.
Morning, Oop Fans!
Here’s the daily link to the good story written by Dave Graue 20 years ago:
Oop’s axe has returned to whatever dimension it lives in when he doesn’t need it. Hope it comes back in time. Mentis would make a lousy club because he looks like a pretty bad bleeder.
They send out hunters to “roam the land”? And they make a “skrreee” sound? If they are just hunters, why does Mentis cringe? And his face turn gray???? Does any of this make any sense at all?
And why is the art so godawful bad today? Is Jack having medical issues or did Carole step in to “help”?
And why is the scenery totally different in the second panel when Oop obviously hasn’t moved? Is in a bonsai forest all of a sudden?
Wha? sinking further into absurdity with a total non-sequitur from Carole, unless Oop is pulling MT’s leg and that’s Pterry…
SKREEE, take three.
Now where has “Farzoon” been all these years? I bet they ride giant killer birds.
Farzoon is pretty far away from Moo—probably somewhere past Nearzoon.
