Well, this certainly took a turn for the intriguing. . .
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (543) 3/11/2019 Monday
Tran’s hum is more in the infra sound range at this point but some of the Lumbagans can feel it. An itching in the jonzi nodes they all have at that level. Every one of the 5-eyed guards can feel it. An itch they cannot scratch. Their leader is slightly more complex of parts and feels it the worst. He is feeling it greater than his guards. He has no idea what is happening since it cannot hear what Tran is doing to them.
This is noticed by all of them. Bex’s ears are vibrating too so he-she can hear it but it isn’t uncomfortable to the Panterran biological construct. (For the proto-type helper-servant-worker for their hives.)
While the guards are being occupied by the ever rising hum, the others begin to sidle over to the nearest guards to disarm them and get weapons back, plus the guard’s powerguns.
“Okay Tran, you can stop now!” Commands Capt. Medusa. He does and their Lumbagan guards fall to the ground shaking and out of it.
“They are still conscious, but I would say they are too busy to notice us.” Violet said getting her blaster back and hoisting the larger powergun.
Lumbaga created by John Keith Laumer for the novel, “Retief’s Ransom”. Haterakans from “Retief & the War Lords”.
3/11/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
Alley leads the hunting expedition in deepest, darkest Brittany in the zone Hantée (haunted) forest. Following is the Great Aryan Hunter, Jon Dravin, of cryptids in this Earth, and Filodor Bolognese bringing up the rear laboring under the weight of mostly heavy 20mm shells for Dravin’s Anzio non-material rifle he is using to kill giant mutated chickens as dangerous as dinosaurs. Some of Dr Lectaire’s doings with gene altering virus he is testing. Henri “accidentally” let some out as he stole both eggs (pale green or light brown) and one of the birds dosed with the gene altering virus.(No ill effects for his wife, Beezlebub and himself.)
Doc Wonmug plucked Alley from Moo a million years ago to the present in the former SS Protektorate of Brittany to kill them.
He seemed the logical choice since he lives in a time where dinosaurs still roam the Earth. (Not counting the ones coming through Tesla S-T-V anomalies or regenerated ones for Mesozoic & Pleistocene parks.)Ø
The Sixth Voyage: The River of Gems (799 A.D.)
Sinbad finds the way out without much trouble and it is night time. The milk and honey is delicious in their varieties unheard of in the outer world. Once they find the pole star, Beta Ursae Minoris (Kochab), they make their way back eventually to Baghdad.
Historian Dr Cox & geologist Dr Copperhead with Doc Wonmug in the present.
Ø It was found out that Dr Nicola Tesla did research in time and dimension and found a way to create portals between times, places and eventually universes. He did not die in 1943, he lives in Sino-Peru in these worlds. The 999 invasion via their own generated made Tesla S-T-V anomalies and in so doing made things worse after the anomalies were going away. A huge resurgence happened and is still being
When did Ooola become such a wuss?
I can’t tell which leg is the right leg and which leg is the left leg on Ooola in the first panel.
Good art in the last two panels.
I enjoyed the punchline. Now, I will admit I haven’t been following Oop very long … but I did like today’s gag as it tied in with the start of their San Fransico journey :-)

Beware of things that go “click” in the dark?
It’s dark. You may be eaten by a grue.
Is anyone liking this “new” strip?
Oh, How much I miss the Benders. This will be my last visit to Alley Oop! These guys could not write a story line if it was given to them.
Trouty and I once pulled some hijinx and ended up getting locked in a magician’s shop. They had all sorts of pranks and tricks and even fake vomit. Trouty wondered why anyone would have fake vomit when you could have the real thing. I did not know the answer.
The storyline seems to be getting more interesting but the artwork is still way below par when compared to the previous artists.
What stupidity will we see tomorrow?
I really don’t like characters made stupid by new writers.
she would not leave Oop.
Ooola’s missing thought balloon from second panel: ‘i wonder if Disney is hiring?’
