G. M. O. T. !
Well . . . that’s rather honest of Alley.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (600) 5/9/2019 Thursday
On the lead ship, the command ship the Capt. is alerted to the Xibalba.
“Capt. Gugl, in coming hyper-pulse right on top of us!” Said the navigator.
Capt. Gugl, an older Haterak with dulling and fading edges of his carapace demanded, “Type of ship—Terran?”
“Um…yes, but not Imperial from its drive signature.” He answered. Every midshipman knows that the Empire has their own hyperdrive that differs from all others both on Terra and their non-Empire colonies.
“Hail them.” The Captain ordered.
On the Xibalba things are tense as the communication comes through from the lead ship.
“Don’t mind us, we are about to leave…” Capt. Medusa said to herself as the ship aligns for the last jump to the Hmong system.
Haterakans from “Retief & the War Lords” created by John Keith Laumer.

*5/9/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
Jon fires first and the dart comes out of the slim barrel with a shuup! and hits the creature in the neck at its base. The animal shakes that part of its body as it underlying muscles twitch and the dart droops then falls down into the dry grass.
Jon sets the compression to a higher grade then fires again an with a slightly harder shuup! then watches. The next one holds but he sees fluid leaking from the dart meaning it is caught on some of that keloid, but not getting it into the animal.
In a low voice Dravin calls Filodor over. “Set yours to 3 and we both shoot the animal.” His hit the shoulder, Filodor’s hits the main body and just bounces off.
This time in the muscle of the foreleg that is the deltoid. This time it stuck long enough to inject the narcotic.
“Finally/” Jon said.
The Seventh Voyage: The Land of the Cyclopes (801 A.D.)
Parker was moving deeper into the building or is he now in a cave? The lighting is still in that aquamarine color good enough for his eyes to adjust and still see it and its details. The horned lizards were scientists in their exploits in biology, chemistry, transmutation of elements and regeneration repair of any wound. They were shown commanding energies as that of the mighty Sun. Only they had created smaller ones to use to power their entire economy. He was growing envious of these beings for their genius and pragmatism. It is just they’re carnivores savagery that still nags him about them. Tarnishing their sterling acumen in the sciences and alchemy.
Historian Dr Cox & with Doc Wonmug in the present.
Is this going to take us back to day one of the new strip? Ooola and Oop under the tree where his head was hit? Was this adventure just a dream?
I’m rolling my eyes right along with you, Ooola!
Remember that ’70s commercial where the loud unseen voice says, “Would Drano hurt your pipes?”
When somebody doesn’t seem to have heard what I said, I always ask if they have been hit in the head. You betcha.
And ain’t Alley happy to admit it.
It would take a lot of hits to the head to do any real harm to a head like his
Unfortunately, there just isn’t much in that head to damge
Please end this arc. It’s torture. :-(
decades of Alley Oop and this is what it has become, disgusting
Several times, actually – don’t you read the comics?
Note that the lemon in panel one appears to be asleep.
Maybe we’ll find out this has all been a joke, and they’re hiring some quality writers/artists.
This was not what I was hoping for after yesterday. But, I will try to persevere and think it will improve again.
If I had a dollar for every time Oop had been hit on the head, I’d be a very rich man.
Oop has a big brain and a thick skull.
