G. M. O. T.!
Well, I imagine Alley has yet to meet Lincoln in person, if you know what I mean . . .
Alley Oop, still suffering from brain trauma.
Dumb as a doorknob. Not funny.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (525) 2/21/2019 Thursday
Bex understands all that they are saying, even Bobbin’s should he ever speak that ear splitting Quoppina. (The rubbing of metallic body parts can be hard on the human ears.)
They have been following a faint road through the dark forest like a back road hardly used now. The forest has been working to fill in the gap where saplings are growing and vines spreading from what they can make out in the gloom.
IN a whisper, “I see this as a service road barely in use, captain, one of Brassorchid’s tips?” Violet asked solicitously, not expecting an answer from the tight lipped rebel Captain.
Alley decides to make a move ahead of them like a scout in a platoon to see what they will meet. They all have communicators implanted so he won’t need to twist and shout to let them know what he finds.Capt. Medusa sees Alley’s action and is pleased. She agrees.
2/21/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
Alley is in the Haunted Forest in Brittany near Carnac-ville. The Doc wanted him to do some extermination of monsters reported there. (He saw ahead including news papers to tell him so and back to watch Dravin get attacked and Filodor to take him to the local hospital.) "How did chickens become monsters? “Food of the Gods?” He asked.He has either seen it all or read about and that is one of the stories he thinks of.
“Not sure on that Oop. But I can say that Dr Lectaire is at it again! Even though he has retired from the ARC service, he didn’t stop doing experiments.”
He stopped, had he heard a sound? “Sorry Doc, gotta go, I think they may have found me!”
The Sixth Voyage: The River of Gems (799 A.D.)
More boulders than grasses here, a field of them with occasional protuberances of solid stone. They brought water, but they will need more if this is how they will reach the magickal river. It is just the magnificent bird-man, “Purr’kkur” or “Parker” you can tell by his plain beak and green and yellow head crest and wearing double pouches slung over both narrow shoulders between his mighty wings lands “No one near, no animals, no threats.” He told them in clipped words. “Also find an oasis.”
Historian Dr Cox & geologist Dr Copperhead with Doc Wonmug in the present.
Wow…. so retarded !
This seems like a totally throw away day. The plot didn’t advance and it just isn’t funny. It’s not as if he hasn’t seen a statute before.
Nancy hit the mark.
Well, that does it. Time to unfollow.
“If you think this guy is big, we might have to make a side trip to Mount Rushmore”
do they beven know whohe is??
The point is that Alley is now an idiot.
Alley oops personality has drastically changed, he’s turned into a moron.the writer of the comic now is always looking for the gag, Alley is lost his maturity, and is more of a simpleton.I guess we will never see the old Alley again and he’s forever lost in that parallel Dimension where they have tacos.
Does anyone else have the impression that the writer is writing for children…that she thinks comics are just for kids? A lot of us seem to have some first-hand knowledge of computers back in the 80s, and anyone using a computer in the 80s is certainly not a “kid” today. I’d like to see the writer leave the silly “kid stuff” for the Little Oop Sunday Strip.
The Lincoln Memorial addition was in my mind a subtle reminder of what Lincoln represents. A bit of sober thought behind the silliness.
I realized, the moment I fell into the fissure, that the book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed—I must admit, however, such conjecture is futile. Still, the question of whose hands might one day hold my book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. And then Trouty vomited all over the table, ruining supper.
I’m still stuck like the old version…
I hope they don’t bus to California when they decide to leave DC.
This isn’t the dumbest comic strip on GoComics. But it ranks right up there.
Followers have now dropped below 23,000.
The only reason I’m holding on is because I can go back to Hamlin’s strips. With those Urls I won’t have to and can cancel this drivel. That’s the only way to get administrative attention; if enough people drop the strip.
If you enlarge panel 3 enough it almost looks like Abe is giving Oop a strong side eye.
Any way we can get rid of these two hack writers? Poor writing, horrible art, why do you people stick with it?
This comic sucks , is this a permanent change , because if so I’m outta here.
And this is why I continue Alternate Alley Oop. Much closer to the comic I love. Not this trash. Joey needs to read early Alley Oop.
It’s not a chuckle, it’s not a smile, it’s a ……. it’s a ……. BARF! ugh
I can’t stand it. I’m outa here!
