    G. M. O. T. !

    Well, all in all, not a bad first week.

    So how about a haiku for Saturday:

    Alley Oop awake.

    Puzzled by certain events.

    Confusion ensues.

    Have a nice weekend, Alleygators!

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (485) 1/12/2018 Saturday

     

    Facing Capt. Medusa, the green skinned, green-gold cat eyed second in command confronts her yet again. This time over the apparent turning the locals into mayhem loving killers by the Peruvians to protect them from the Empire?

    “No that would be insane. We may not fully invest in them, but we did give them a leg up so that when the normal survey ships reached their world they wouldn’t be totally off guard.”

    “You really are reaching there aren’t you captain?” Violet smiled again a sharp toothy one showing off her perfect white teeth.

    “Once you know more about their biology you can understand their psychology.” Capt. Medusa said, enigmatically.

    “How about filling us in on the important stuff like our mission here?” Butted in Major Veng, being quite annoyed now.

    Just then two vehicles were racing down the street in their direction, one chasing the other. Both are patchwork mixes and chugging along leaving a tail of black smoke as they fire at each other with weapons, some hand made. People of all sizes, shapes and number of appendages dived for cover, others returned fire with guns, blasters, bow and arrow, even flung debris.

    1/12/2019 “999” (2009)

    The enigmatic Amarru watch it all on devices light years ahead of anyone, though the Peruvians are most advanced here. They watch all the goings on all over the world. By utilizing an ancient abomination’s own visual apparatus. A great risk, but they are careful and took it to have a ready made arcane biological system at their disposal. One of its names is CHULA-VARUNA, also CHAC-MOOL, & TLALOC are 2 others for it came down from the stars then was trapped in the Earth’s oceans for millions of years by other such arcane creatures and “sleeps” till the stars are right for it to walk the Earth again.They also know who the evil ones are by the black aura the arcane visual sensors identify them as part of CHULA-VARUNA’s abilities and stories about it. It is said they are the number of the stars in the sky that are these eyes.

    They have their own plans on stopping the 999 to end this extortion of an entire species. But for now they wait, watch and listen.

    Henri is still back at the Permian and with the surviving ARC team close down one of the anomalies that may be the cause of the horrat invasion of the Middle Permian that changed history. He’s not sure and hopes the world he returns to is the one he had left those 5 months ago from ARC Base 1-London.

    The Sixth Voyage: The River of Gems (799 A.D.)

    Alley is looking mighty red with all the blood of the monster he just slashed with his weapon. But the next wave washes it off and cleans off the poop deck as they are tossed by the huge marine bodies of nocturnal creatures in this land of gloom.

    Henri, Dr Lectaire and Beezlebub created by Wilbur Floppenheimer

    Historian Dr Cox & geologist Dr Copperhead with Doc Wonmug in the present.

    Vince Hamlin’s “Nitro for Napoleon” – Episode 42 (3/10/1947)

    Panel 1: Oop, removing his helmet, “Well, here we are… wow! Wotta blowout… gee, Oscar, I…”

    Boom, removing his top hat, “Steady, pal… just remember you can lick any guy in th’ house!”

    Panel 2: Servant, as Alley and Oscar start to descend a staircase, ”COLONEL OOP AND M’SIEU BOOM!’

    Panel 3: Josephine, as Oscar and Alley near the bottom of the stairs and into a large gathering, “Of these gentlemen I have not heard… who are they?”

    Officer #1, bowing, “They are, most lovely Josephine, the newest of your husband’s lieutenants…”

    Officer#2, “Oui.. and do they rate!”

    “What Have We Learned This Week?”™

    Let’s pretend for a moment that we’re new readers, picking up the first collection of the Lemon/Sayers era.

    So, what info has been imparted exactly?

    1.) Alley Oop lives in the time of dinosaurs.

    2.) His girlfriend, Ooola, is the brains of the operation.

    We know this because …

    3.) She ‘splains the premise of the strip: They are cave people employed in the ‘Quantum Leap’ tradition, putting right what once went wrong, along with an as-yet-unseen time-traveling scientist, Dr. Wonmug.

    4.) This is a ‘soft reboot’/‘parallel universe,’ so we shouldn’t expect any overt references to past Hamlin/Graue/Bender continuity.

    5.) No Tacos.

    Not now.

    Not ever. ✨

    Looks like TJ and the Degroot parents will eat all the tacos in the universe they left, unless Alley Oop travels to Mexico a few centuries before The Spanish came and teach the indigenous people of the Valley of Mexico how to do “tlahco” and put the tacos back in that Universe, that would be an interesting first adventure LOL, and we now one day away from seeing “lil Alley” and maybe how Guz and his wife became an item.

    I’d be interested in knowing what size boards the art is drawn on, if they’re even using pen-and-paper rather than digital media.

    Pretty sure that Hamlin and Graue had much more available space to play with. ✨

    Morning, Oopsters!

    Well, I’ve delayed making a serious comment for most of the week. Overall I’m pleased with the reboot. It certainly isn’t Hamlin quality, and not even up to Graue standards. But it’s a very welcome improvement to the Bender version and a far cry better than the new Nancy. The new team had to take a week to give us an introduction and they did just that. Now that that’s over, I hope we can start seeing Oop riding through the jungle tearing limbs off of trees, knocking big monsters dead on their knees and knuckling some heads before you count to fo-wah,

    Today’s ink.

    I understand that with new artists doing the strip there will be changes, but this is ridiculous. Oola looks like she went to a plastic surgeon who only worked in playdo. Alley seems like he has an eating disorder (upper arms and legs and shoulders). I will wait awhile and see how Dinny and the other characters look but I am leaning to abandoning what used to be a good strip. AND FIX THE COLOR PALETTE!

    I sort of know how they feel. My all-time fave taco place used to be a place called Cisco’s Cafe on NW 36 Street in Miami Springs, across from the north side of Miami Intl. Airport (MIA). I understand that Cisco’s was torn down some years ago, and there’s a hotel on the site now. I wish I had access to a time machine to go back to the 1990s for one more Taco Happy Hour at Cisco’s!

    I used to like AO but left years ago when it got lame. then it disappeared it seems. Found it the other day and promised to give it a week or two to grab my funny bone. No where near that yet.

    Well Oopsters, Week One is done & we have been introduced to the “New Kids on the Block” adaption. Tomorrow we won’t have to see a recap of what we just witnessed but get to check out Lil’ Oop in the early years. Hopefully it will be entertaining!

    I’ve read Alley Oop for decades, man am I disappointed in this new strip. The artwork is childlike, as is the dialog. Didn’t the previous people review the new people, or did they just not care. I’m dropping this strip and will start re-reading Oop from the beginning.

    Since they both know what tacos are why can’t they make them in this universe? Are the ingredients just not available?

    Maybe there is just some fundamental law in this universe that just won’t let you make one.

    Hey, there’s an idea for a story arc! Alley Oop’s quest for the taco!

    Why tacos, anyway? Tacos are good but I think I could live my life OK without them.

    Now, if Ooola had said this universe doesn’t have any coffee, that would be a tragedy.

    Hey guys, great way to use tacos to reestablish characters! Oop is a thick as a mattress sandwich and Oola is the poor, suffering straight-man. Er, straight-cavewoman.

    OK Oopsters, I found the Little Oop panels. Done in a flashback for 2 Sundays. And if you go to the next few Sundays after that, an Evil Twin of Oop’s shows up briefly, causing havoc.Enjoy:

    Just a general statement here. While there have been a blizzard of comments on here since 7 Jan, some pro, some con, I suspect that GoComics would view this as a big plus, meaning people are engaged and have opinions about the strip, and are generating page views.

    Now let’s say the new strip began on 7 Jan, and each day, maybe 3 or 4 people commented on it. And for the next 2 weeks, maybe the same amount of comments daily.

    Which scenario would be better for the continuation of the strip? What would look better to the company, 23,000 followers, of which maybe 90% very rarely check in to read it even though they are subscribed, or 100-200+ active comments per day?

    Here’s what to look for tomorrow(tonight on the West Coast)

    Little Oop is going to be very different from Alley Oop, thematically and tonally. Lemon is doing it in a totally separate art style, and the jokes are built and paced differently. Little Oop is in middle school and is dealing with typical pre-teen stuff like crushes, homework, and not getting eaten by dinosaurs.
