    G. M. O. T. !

    1) An homage to the creator of this strip? If this is so, then not bad.

    2) Nice of Dr. Wonmug to simplify things for Alley.

    As far as colors go, the white looks white to me, no off colour tint.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (488) 1/15/2018 Tuesday

     

    watching the big screen where the disc shaped robot survielling and following the Xibalba crew in their walk are watching them closely.

    “D-66 is being observed, definitely.” Said the TENO Chief now watching with concern. The rest of the smaller screens taken up by other parts of the continent they are also seeing.

    Walking over to his second in command who is in a darker jump suit uniform from the others there, with an armband also edged in silver, the Chief tells him to, “Put what you can on whatever that creature is. It must be identified!” Was his order.

    He knows this is serious if that green-thing can’t be I.D.’d.

    “Yes sir! Under his blue eye, SIR!” then gets to work. Finally,he thinks,I can be useful.

    Miles away, Bex cannot get them to see it or hear it and is puzzled by that.

    “This is not logical. I must think on this more…” Said the synthetic beast.

    1/15/2019 “999” (2009)

    The Hospital Ship

    “The scarlet coloration is almost gone, his body temperature is now 105 degrees!” Exclaimed one of the Meditechs observing the patient, and prime specimen. The damaged skull was bandaged. The heating process interfered with the regeneration process of the alien cells as the “good” doctor also expected.

    “Continue to see if he regains consciousness or dies.” Was Lectaire’s response. Losing the patient won’t compromise the experiment. It will furnish valuable information. As all such experiments do for people like him. “The Superior Men.”

    The schematics have already been sent by wireless to begin construction of better versions of this crude prototype. The automated factories have some humans overseeing their operations and to correct and improve Dr Lectaire’s initial design.

    All designed by that genius of robotics, Dr. Clement Armstrong. One of the heroes of their nation.

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

    Xenias is a big place it might take days to sail around to meet the Seboim river as they go. Some of the animals are strange looking. Large hexapods with white fur mottled with purple blots and the narrow heads have 2-eyes on stalks.Golden ones with vertical black pupils one would expect on a cat or lizard glared at them as its proboscis munched the lavender verdure with a mobile mouth at the end of a kind of trunk. Even Alley is sure they aren’t looking at an Earth type location. Those animals look familiar to him.

    Henri, Dr Lectaire and Beezlebub created by Wilbur Floppenheimer

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

    Brilliant! Not only does it offer an homage to previous Alley Oop creators; it also gives us some technobabble that ‘helps’ us accept this reboot (or peek into an alternate dimension — whichever seems most reasonable to you). It’s also a great example of the hybrid style I was advocating on Sunday last.

    I know about those Bender particles – the exact opposite of tachyons, they are the slowest particles in the universe.

    I like the fact that they make better use of the space they have to work with. We’ve been getting about four panels per strip. It always irritates me when cartoonists use it up for one or two panels, consistently.

    This is very similar to the accountant at my old workplace explaining why one’s paycheck looked suspiciously short. She’d just wear you down with incomprehensible jargon.

    I love that the current creative team has worked the names of previous artists/writers into this one. Occasionally, the “Dick Tracy” creative team will do something similar.

    Vince Hamlin’s “Nitro for Napoleon” – Episode 45 (3/13/1947)

    Panel 1: Boom, moving towards Oop and the officer, “Alley!! For heavens sake…”

    Another officer, stepping in Oscar’s way, “Sorry, M’sieu… but this, she is the affair of honor!”Panel 2: French officer, as he starts to draw his sword from its scabbard, “You have insult! Now I stick you full of holes like the pig!”

    Oop, reaching for his sword, “So you wanta fight?”

    Panel 3: Alley, pulling out the stub of his shattered sword, “Okay, bub, have at it! I’ll HOLY COW!

    Panel 4: The French officer lunges at Alley with his sword, which pierces clean through his tunic and causes Oop’s hair to stand on end.

    I just noticed that in the first panel, Oop says “tell me again how we ended up in an alternate dimension”. Don’t recall Doc having told him anything yet, although I suppose it may have happened overnight in a conversation we didn’t see…8*)

    @Woots Note in the 8/13/56 there ids a reference to Guz having “one papoose”. Long gone but not forgotten. Also, note in this story that Oop takes a jeep first to Moo and then to the West in 1868. Hamlin never let the anachronisms get in the way of a good story.

    “How did we get to a parallel universe, Doc?” Asked the time-traveling cave man.

    “Our time machine creates a Hamlin field. Last time we traveled our Graeu Manipulator slipped causing us to be bombarded by Bender particles which made our dimensional alignment change to one of the nearest such parallel dimensions.” ~ Doc Elbert Wonmug

    “Well, in other words, we had a flat and skipped into another lane.” He amended.

    “Ah! Now I understand!” – Alley Oop

    Something else I just noticed. Now that the title of the whole strip reads:

    Alley Oop by Jonathan Lemon and Joey Alison Sayers for August 13, 1956

    They are now credited with the entire Oop Canon so now they own it, gotta live up to the appellation. 8*)

    On a hunch, I tried and discovered that YACReader will open and read .zip files. Very nice in that I have a bunch of Oops in .zip format. Beats having to extract and view the whole zip, this leaves the zip there and just let you read them. Now have to see if I can convert them to .cbz format. Without that, the little window lets you see the next and last ones, but you can’t scroll them with just the mouse. This message only applies to those who use comic book readers, everyone else can just scroll on by to the next msg…

    Not bad so far.. I am enjoying this, The only big thing bugging me about the art is that Oops open mouth is never showing enough of the inside ( the black part ), making it look like a partial mouth
