This was posted when today’s strip first appeared in 2013 by Estrelita:
“Alley HAS to have all of that gear on – so he can be mistaken for a Frankenstein monster. My guess – Alley will be rendered unconscious and be presumed dead. Doc will rig up something similar to a modern-day defibulator. Doc’s Rube Goldberg arrangement will work, and Alley will be “shocked” back into life.”
That was a pretty good guess, except that she didn’t figure that Doc, for reasons that only Carole Bender understands, was carrying a defibrillator in his duffel bag.
