    margueritem says Recap, and recap. It’s a tad more than that. This flicking story hasn’t moved one iota forward since last week THURSDAY. It’s as dead or as limp as Locher’s Robots. And then the Praetorian Guard leaps quickly into defensive mode suggesting a (hillarious) ploy that Locher can’t move the story forward any “faster”, He is, poor man rectricted by panel space (chuckle) last month I was rediculed for commenting on the stories glacial-moving “pace” (after 12 weeks) They said I was not appreciating the brilliant technique of “building suspense”,(chuckle) as the story remained without a crime for all that time,It practically stood still.

    Vault doors that go “Twang” are easy to replace. You can get them at Wally World, cheap. Unarmed security is relatively easy to come by, too. I know because (true) I have relatives who are in unarmed security, as well as a few friends in that line of work. It’s low-paying, and generally the jobs are filled either with young folk in their first jobs or retirees filling out their social security and pensions.

    The fire seems to be spreading. Perhaps they’ll let it run its course and sprinkle his ashes around his orthodontist’s office. But what’s up in the last panel? Tess called to tell Diet about the robots, and he’s offering assistance. For a new adventure? Or is the just going to tell her, “Warranty? What warranty?” Stay tuned.

    Mu guess is that Tess wants Diet’s help to find Dick a Christmas present, and this is going to involve Traze-R becoming some type of robo housekeeper at the Tracy home. Run away if you can Traze-r! Oops, forgot, he has no wheels anymore. Drag yourself by your arms! Tracy and Diet will never catch up, don’t worry.

    I think Tess is asking him to bring a bag of marshmallows to the Genesis building. Never let a smoldering super-villain go to waste.

    Considering how much power is needed to incinerate a human body, I’d be paying a lot more attention to getting the power pack removed from MF and into a vault somewhere.

    Tomorrow we’ll find out that:

    1) Braces is dead. 2) Traze-R is still alive. 3) Diet is talking to Tess. 4) Shirl Locke turned out to be a villain.

    How many recall that this current “story” began in August? Since then, Tracy got a robot, Braces got a robot, the robots fought, and Tracy inadvertently triumphed.

    And it only took ONE HUNDRED AND SIX DAILY COMICS to tell this story (SO FAR)!!!

    I predict that Diet Smith’s talk with Tess is just a subplot of whatever comes next. Tess is probably shopping for a nice Christmas gift for Dick. Diet Smith has a lot of high-tech gadgets.

    Sydney Phillips: We’ve all been condamned by the Praetorian Guard for not being able to see the true genius behind the goings on, (or lack thereof) in this strip. We Philestines have no appreciation for art.

    Philestines? Is that a fancy name for a Magpie?

    It was done on purpose, Ray.
