    Well, it looks like the Silos ARE good people!

    And those do look like people rather than supplies parachuting in!

    Just what I was expecting: the FBI and MCU are parachuting in. I wonder what happens next. They can parachute in, but they can’t parachute back out.

    The lowest parachutist looks like a largely-built person… could it be Punjab? There appears to be two other people and a smaller chute, which may carry weapons and supplies.

    Message to all the climate change deniers who went on tirades on Sunday night:

    You people really need to stop mentioning Al Gore, because he has nothing to do with this issue. If he had never been born, we would still be having this exact, same conversation, because human-caused global warming would still be very real.

    The overwhelming majority of climate scientists agree on this point. They are more sure about climate change than medical science is about the link between cigarettes and cancer.

    Y’all need to get your brains out of your hindquarters.

    PS: Even if you were right about climate change (and you aren’t), we still have the enormous problem of ocean acidification. That by itself is reason enough to reduce carbon emissions, because we are now on the precipice of a major sea life extinction event.

    Quick, run and find some crap on some right-wing blogs explaining why ocean acidification doesn’t matter!

    You’re so predictable.

    All Tracy has to do is tell them of Kenyon’s experiments and they’ll have a whole platoon of troops there in no time!

    I agree Paula. The locals have been programmed by Axel to paranoia about Nazi invaders, as we see from their reactions to the B17 each time it comes over. They will be grabbing their shotguns and pitchforks…

    It’s not easy for three (or four?) people to parachute out of a B-17, which wasn’t designed for that sort of thing. And I hope they’re not spotted by the Wrong People while coming down. This is not the quietist nor most clandestine infiltration imaginable (but it does make for good visuals!)….

    So now we have to figure out who the four parachutists are. My guess is Warbucks, Punjab, Asp, and Sam. That leaves out Fritz Ann. Anybody else have a guess?

    Another thing to remember is that this rescue squad is in contact with the outside world. They can easily call in reinforcements!

    That is what is so sad. It will take a crisis to get the country to change. By then it will be too late.

    If they were smarter, they’d have used paragliders or ultralights or some such thing so they could come in without someone noticing the plane flight at all…

    Wonderful art. The third panel is especially striking. Thus, the Thunder Island and Tracyville arcs merge. There is no reason to believe that the force we witness in today’s strip is the entirety of the MCU/FBI joint operation. Axel will need to hypnotize himself to believe that he is not in deep trouble.

    congrats to mike and his team for the award, but seriously.. i dont know if it was deserved as much as maybe the competition wasnt as well produced. if its anything like the emmys (where the actors nominated pick.. according to THEM. their “best work”) but depending on what story they are basing the win on, truth be told, NONE of the stories over the last year were worthy of the award… the franken-mindy story was ludicrous and a HA-YUGE letdown after such a big build-up.

    still, congrats team tracy

    Looks like parachute on the left didn’t open. Hopefully, it is the one with Wendy Wichel. (We can always hope, can’t we?)

    Flight Suit, et al…….. I am sure there are plenty discussion groups online that offer ample space for people to pontificate on political issues of the day, including Obama’s legitimacy, climate change, immigration, and even some that have Ebola experts. Just not here, please. We have our own fill of “interesting” posters, and need no more. Thanks.

    nightgaunt, do you even READ what i write or do you just see my name and start throwing barbs? seriously, get a grip.

    i am definitely NOT a fan of the franken-mindy story and if THAT’S what got them the harvey, then there must not have been too much competition… it was too dragged out and then wrapped up with what has now become known as a “Sweatbox Ending”

    sorry if i dont share your prescription on those rose colored glasses you always seem to wear

    Given the tendency to “resurrect” all comic heroes, I’d guess the parachutists might be Little Nemo, Joe Palooka, Kerry Drake and Johnny Hazard. Geronimo!!!!

    I’m betting it’s Punjab, the Asp, and Daddy Warbucks (in his tuxedo, with a cigar in his mouth and a tommy gun across hie chest).I can’t picture Sam making the jump. Maybe Fritz Ann?

    “I’ve one thing to say – there is no Left Wing media. I’ve worked in it, and can tell you, it is owned and run by corporations, and some of the most conservative people you’ll meet. ".Thank you, I was going to say that most of the “liberal media” is owned by large corporations that tend to be very conservative and pro-big business. But you beat me to the punch and probably made the point better than I could.I’ll just add that I believe that the term “liberal media” was first thrown around by the Nixon administration back when it was drowning in the watergate scandal. The media wasn’t particularly liberal, it was just at that time they smelled the heavy stench of blood in the water and went after it.

    Changing the subject back to the plot here, it seems that the scam orchestrated by Axel is more fitting to be administered by Axel Foley. Same slapstick.

    Also interesting, av09, is that this new fellow, “What is wrong with you people?” looks like he wants to give you a run for your money, controversy-wise!
