Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (568) 4/6/2019 Saturday
Violet has them on long range sensors and they are closing fast. Something is not right.
“Captain, these are not reading as Imperial interceptors!”
“Do you have their configuration yet, Night 2!”
“I do…now. You won’t believe it!”
The vaguely mayfly insect shapes are not HAE design.
“What about that main ship??” Night 1 asks Night 2.
“It is not a D class 5R Star Destroyer. That is for sure.” Night 2 replied.(The most recent iteration of the standard Star Destroyer first fielded to wipe out Afghanistan to make it suitable for extensive mining in 2022 by the new regime.)
“It is definitely alien, the FTL profile is different from our own. Not of Empire manufacture.” She was certain.
Night 2 does finally find out what they are. And she hardly believes it. “Sir, they are of Haterakan make.”
“Impossible!” Was the captain’s comment.
Lumbaga created by John Keith Laumer for the novel, “Retief’s Ransom”. Haterakans from “Retief & the War Lords”.
G. M. O. T. !
On to Florida.
Swamps full of weird stuff abound.
Not for Oop or Doc.
Well, Monday can’t come soon enough.
4/6/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
Filodor holds the large shell like a shot putter, he did do so in high school. He just needs to get into the mouth and throat in the hopes of choking the thing. All that without getting bitten and swallowed along with it. He can see it through the nettles and honey suckle. A large mostly white shape not too far away from him.The nettles are his only protection.
Alley and Jon Dravin are playing tag with the other one. The one that Alley had only nicked with the Anzio when he had taken it and fire it. For so large a creature it can move with astonishing speed.
Hovering near Dr Lectaire orders one of his hovercrafts to find the other one while he and the remaining one move in to hit the experiment from two sides. They are armed with the kind of stunners used by the A.R.C. to do so for specimens they want to return alive to their time, large ones. He would rather have these two alive.
The Seventh Voyage: The Land of the Cyclopes (801 A.D.)
Wave after wave of blue Perytons come through trying to get at the humans on board to be “whole” again. The two in their fortified crow’s nests are being hit hard as the Perytons attempt to dislodge their covers to kill the humans within.At the same time the use of spears, swords and crossbow bolts don’t seem to be hurting them much. A few men have fallen and the Peryton smashed them into the deck then flew off now a glossy green in color and making sounds they interpret as laughter, joyous laughter at their success.
The probes being used by Doc Wonmug and Dr Cox also calibrated for the soul energy—life forces and see something remarkable…
Historian Dr Cox & with Doc Wonmug in the present.
So has the “damaged timeline” just been forgotten?
Three months of nothing.

I have lived in Florida, and the cockroaches really are that big!
But Alley, Disney World is down there! Surely The Magic Kingdom may hold as much allure for you as….some old libtary?The OLD Alley ‘n Oolah would’ve been scorching a direct path to there at the first mention!
This is NOT Alley Oop anymore. Maybe a fair Abbot and Costello, but I can’t imagine what the Go Comics people were thinking in completely wiping out the original comic. The strip has survived several different writers but won’t survive this change.
Worse and worser!
They do have some big cockroaches down there, but not that big.
Doc has morphed into Crankshaft. Sigh.
Enough with the slapstick “gags” and erstwhile “jokes”, where’s the adventure?
fourth panel: Ooola in bikini on Miami Beach
I’ve been following Ally Oop since the 1940s. As I recall, Doc Wonmug’s time machine was in Florida.
Doc Wonmug has schlepped all the way back to prehistoric Moo, snagged Alley Oop and Ooola, brought them to the time of when the Doc made his most favoritest in the whole world mix tape of Duran Duran, found that it had been . . . tape-napped with the ransom being “Get me these 3 things and I’ll give your precious tape back to you”.
Then he put them all on a Slow Bus to DC, conned the President of the U.S. into letting them fly to California on the president’s aircraft, did the touristy thing, broke into and out of the office of the future computer game guru, wowed said future guru with a “smart cell phone” and walked off with the (copy of, we hoped) master disc of the big money making game.
All, so far, for the love of his beloved Duran Duran mix tape.
And now he abandons his quest because of the rumour of BIG BUGS?
Well, maybe he is just pausing to find his Roach Stolmping Boots?
Today’s H:H index (Hearters vs. Hecklers) = 3 to 1.
The question is, will the numbers balance out for those new to this liking its light frivolous tone?

The one I killed here in Florida last night couldn’t have been even three inches. I killed it before it grew up.
