G. M. O. T.!
Nice to see Doc Wonmug.
I mean, it HAS been several months since we’ve last saw him.
Vince Hamlin’s “Nitro for Napoleon” – Episode 44 (3/12/1947)
Panel 1: French officer, “Outrageous! The boor!”
Boom, bowing to Josephine, ”My apologies for my comrade’s ungentlemanly conduct! I…please may I…. ahmmmm”
Oop, “dragging the French officer through the doorway, “Grrr!!
Panel 2: Boom, standing as Napoleon approaches, “Sir, I regret that—er——-”
Boney, “At ease, M’sieu… my Josephine, I am sure, can spare one of her gentlemen!”
Panel 3: Boney, to himself, “Perhaps three or four… heh! Who knows? Are the strategies of Napoleon to be confined to battlefields alone?”
Panel 4: Boney, looking down, “Non!”
Oop, holding the officer with his left hand while his right fist is raised in a clench, “Now, punk. This business about pigs…”
Officer, sputtering, “Ahfff! Affront…insult…I…”
So now the joke is pizza instead of tacos?
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (487) 1/14/2018 Monday
“Why didn’t we just land closer to our target?” Asked Violet. She isn’t tired, her breeding, literal breeding gave her very good stamina. But she is efficient and this is time wasted by her reckoning.
“The Empire would have scanned us and even with the I.D. scrambler on they would send out someone to find us and just might destroy us anyway. This way there is less chance it would arouse suspicion from them.”
“Then why are we being watched, followed?” Asked Bex, startling everyone.
“Eh, what do you mean big fella?” Alley asked the furry beast.
“I detected energy, found the antenna, and notice a surveillance robot over us and yet none of you saw it.” He looks up and points with his chest tentacles, all the different hands pointed up. They all look up.
None of them could detect it, not even Bobbins with his wider spectrum of vision. Richard even with cyber eyes those visual processing parts of the living brain are in use and suppressed!
Thought they might get to Doc Wonmug sooner rather than later. ✨
1/14/2019 “999” (2009)
Back on the hospital ship the body temperature at its core was now 90 degrees F! Dr Lectaire examines the person, the red has faded some, the wound on his head is bleeding now. Only partially healed. As Dr Lectaire surmised after a certain point it will be impossible to heal someone who has been so fully converted. Just a slow expensive means of killing then. They will have to apply as soon as infecting commences and before the final metamorphosis. However for completeness they will take this experiment as far as possible. He types it all in his electronic medical diary then closes it locked away behind several encryption layers at his special terminal, locked away both within and from without.
He needs to speak with the Leader and begin manufacturing of the medical treatment beds and the millions will pour in from both the American and German Empires to him.
The Sixth Voyage: The River of Gems (799 A.D.)
Leaving the dark land of Bobam’um behind and back into the sunlight of Xenias, things look normal except for the lavender grasses all about, red leaves, orange skies. Like the color of the world had been shifted to different hues, shades and tints. “Each one of these ‘provinces’ are like different worlds don’t you think so?” Asked Dr. Cox of Doc Wonmug and Copperhead. “Definitely does upon inspection,” agreed Dr Copperhead. “Wouldn’t that be wild if this ‘magick’ land is some kind of space ship of unbelievable power that somehow arrived on ancient Earth? WE need to let Alley and Ooolala know about this. See what they can find out about it.”
Henri, Dr Lectaire and Beezlebub created by Wilbur Floppenheimer
Historian Dr Cox & geologist Dr Copperhead with Doc Wonmug in the present.
Note that Doc has 3 Time Travel Amulets with him. Oh boy…. So now they can just ZANG! back to the normal dimension. 8*)
Note that Wonmug brought along enough pendants for Oop and Ooola.
Someone had noted the “Popeye” influence in the art, particularly noticeable today in the portrayal of Doc Wonmug.
Can we get Boing instead of “Zang” ?
Darn. Doc is carrying the amulets – boo.
Does it really take this long to fix the major color problem?
Oop is became like Nancy!
52 comments at 4 am EST? Wow…
Seems like tacos would be the thing to ask for just to see if Doc asks, “What are tacos?”
Is Oop turning into Dagwood?
So, the Sunday version of this comic will be about toddler Alley?
Glad we didn’t lose ZANG!
Dr. (not Doc???) Wonmug looks confused. I assume this is the parallel world’s version of him?
Alley’s getting the band back together!
Last week he didn’t even understand about time travel, now he recognizes Dr Wonmug?
I would say that they should update the icon etc for alley oop, except that they’re probably not updating it yet on purpose so that it’s more obvious that it’s the same strip, just different writer etc. Once it’s more established as the new version, I assume they’ll update that.
I do think the coloring is still off. On my phone at least, alley has almost a bit of a greenish tint. Looks a bit weird. The pacing and writing seem more in line with what I’ve seen if the originals, though.
As old characters appear it seems we’re going to go time traveling soon. Maybe the color will correct when we “ZANG” out of Moo.
I don’t know if it’s GoComics or the new artist but everything is to olive. Still a great comic though.
Almost had pizza for dinner last night. Alley, do you see a pizza box? Doc does not have the magic pockets you have. (or should i say “did not” and “you had”?)
This is my favorite strip yet, artwise.
If I’m not mistaken, aren’t the amulets inverted (attached from a single corner, as opposed to two from earlier comics)?
I’m still not sure about this different take on Alley. I take it the running gag is going to be the “starving protagonist”? Also, didn’t he just have pizza before returning to his own time?
Good to see Doc into the “reboot” so soon……..haven’t been here much……those Benders: Ooooff! Anyway there was a minute….a very scary minute……when I thought the new team might actually drop the “time travel” thing…….worse has been done to long-established formulas. ZANG!!
I wish they would go back to the old artist, can’t stand this one.
Are we at zany yet?
I like the continuity of the ZANG! and that after last week’s reset/explication Oop and apparently Ooola are off on an adventure with Doc…
“Dr.?” What happened to “Doc?”
Ha ha! I’m back. Whatever fool reported me doesn’t understand the complicated free registration process. You can’t stop me. Bozos.
Today’s strip is better but it doesn’t make sense. Oop says “you’re back” but Wonmug hardly ever went to Moo. He wasn’t much of a time traveler as the heavy lifting was up to Alley and Oscar.
So we see a few things different like Dr. Wonmug actually using his machine to see this version of Alley Oop.
So, we saw Wonmug before we saw the Wiser. It will be interesting to see if they still look alike.
Wonmug looks a bit stunned or confused. Maybe the coloring shocks him? 8*)
Alley is blind… where can a pizza be hidden ? An obsessive idea ? A Mantra ?
