P. S. Yes, I am aware that this is previously published strip.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (354) 9/3/2018 Monday
While Alley was driving the hover-forklift back to the Xibalba with the stasis modules, Capt Medusa is speaking with the person who contracted them for the job in the first place. With life extension techniques and also body sculpting you can never be sure what sex someone is, young or old, or even if they are partly or wholly human. It just adds to the adventure!
Unlike some of the others this fellow is wearing some armor, and fur and metal fittings and fishnet stockings…long grey hair, a long face that has some longitudinal creases on his? Her face? No breast plates but that doesn’t always work either. (Not even counting putting humans into android bodies or even other living bodies. Soul swapping?)
“Thank you Mr Yngvar Følling Voorpligen for the job.” Capt. Medusa said as they clasped forearms.Mister is a neutral honorific here.
“We checked them over and they were within the limits we set for the job. Can we call on you again Captain?”
Capt. Medusa was happy to get repeat business and word-of-mouth can pay dividends too. Build a good rep and it can pay the bills forever. The transfer was made to her account that is good where ever they go.
9/3/2018 “999” (2009)
The truck was non-descript besides the dot group codes on it and the stylized “A” for Armstrong logo. Each of the humanoid devices got up one after another left then right, hopped off and stood waiting for the others to finish disembarking a short distance away in military formation. They each carry an integrated boxy caseless rifle with 1,000 rounds in a rhomboid magazine munition feeder under it. The weapon would be too heavy for a person to hold much less shoot. Dr Lectaire had been contacted to feed in what information they have to the platoon Leader Cybernaut then they will hunt. Lectaire is practically dancing now he’s so happy. A buzzing is heard.
The Sixth Voyage: The River of Gems (799 A.D.)
The flash and subsequent booms are care of Dr. Copperhead’s setting off of the flares down that hole. What happens next will be very exciting. Copperhead lifts the big drone at Wonmug’s insistence and just in time since something large and metallic rises very fast knocking the drone spinning. Just then an orange flash of energy bursts from the starfish head of the metallic creature. They are in awe of it.

So yesterday had a prequel of today?
So that bag has all the clothes he needs, including the oversize boots for Oop and the thick down jacket? Also needs winter coat, etc for Oop. Surely he needs a few items of clothing since it will be winter in the mountains, good thing he has a magic bag, like Oop’s magic pouch, to hold everything.
Will they meet the Byrons and the Shelleys?
If you don’t like the old strips then unfollow. However you might miss the start when the new artists come in.
If you don’t like the old strips then unfollow and come back in early january 2019. And if you loose one day or two, you will be able to go back and read them. ;)
Or do not come back at all if you only want to cry about quality :(
In retrospect, Benders artwork was decent. A little too much complaining about rocks and leaves, and other minor details IMO. Alley wasn’t drawn as grizzly as Hamlin did. Ooola looked more like she was 45-50 years old, with that same red dress and a big bust. Hamlin drew her as a 20 year old, more svelte and girlish frequently with clothes modern for the day and often sporting a sidearm. The Bender story lines weren’t bad in the beginning but they got a lot worse as time went on. Too bad Hamlin didn’t preserve his artwork. He gave some of it away as souvenirs that turn up from time to time. Hamlin was a gifted artist who excelled at the female form, horses and dinosaurs. His wife often modeled for him.
The recalled rerun journey begins Oopsters. Sit back and chill out for four months and ponder over your past comments. Here’s to a new team preparing to continue our Moovian adventures . . .
Any one know the date this story originally ran?
I always loved this strip, but to enjoy it, one had to accept:-time travel-humas living with dinosaurs (and training/speaking with them)-cave men speaking English-women wearing dresses (that covered them from neck to knee)-that cave men had weddings-etc.Sad to see the strip end.
I predict that Ooola will get real bitchy, real quick.
He forgot to pack the hazmat suits, but oh yeah, that notion came later…
on Mondays it mostly that unless we get lucky
They’s a big yeller arrow with the words “The Time-Travel Amulet”!
