It was just there. Yes, I swear. Bright bogey on the screen
Vanished in an instant, left no traces to be seen.
Now flying over Tracytown. A man of taste and wealth
Arrival undetected as the Space Coupe set to stealth.
Look to see Smith Industries, no Space Coupes on the lot
What is known can’t be unlearned, Smith knows but he has not
Felt construction would be wise, why build a brand new fleet
For criminals like Ghote and Sail to steal to beat the heat?
Governor is crafty, finds a barn in disrepair
Parks the Coupe clean out of sight. No one shall spy it there.
There is a voice inside his head. A Moonling grown so errant?
Bizarre and yet so troubling to one who is a parent.
He thinks of her, his long lost one, the apple of his eye
Her winsome smile. Mysta sans guile. He heaves a heavy sigh.
Searches take time.
Very Locheresque-looking strip today.
Wonder what the governor is up to?
Bill ! Wake up, we’re on !!! …And Good morning !
Timing is now crucial: There have been MANY changes to our currency since the 1960s! Like the ORANGE $10 and the BLUE to PURPLE $5 bill… Not to mention the artwork! // Does anybody remember the “old” $10 bill, the one that had four automobiles on the back? (When I see one, I quickly stash it away and make sure NOT to spend it!)
Not sure what currency you’re speaking of, CHEAPSKATE…I thought Yankee money was always that pasty green colour. Are you referring to Canadian Monopoly money? You know, it changes colour and design on a regular basis! Still remains legal tender, though. (It’s legally tender, too.)
When was the Moon Maid era at DT? Was it pre-1972? Money was actually gold-backed at that time. It’s not, now.
In 1967, the Chin Chillars brought a Space Coupe to a fake farm just outside Tracy’s city and hid it there.Now in 2017, Moon Governor has brought a Space Coupe to a derelict farm just outside Tracy’s city and hidden it there.Probably just a coincidence, but one that jumped out at me, so I thought I’d mention it.
This will be an interesting story once its regular run starts.
The currency is still good, but spending a lot of it is liable to get people curious.
Good morning guys!
Another late start and the story is outstanding! I love it!
Errant Moonling? Hmmm…
I was in the self-checkout line at a supermarket recently. All I had with me was an old style $20 bill. The machine wouldn’t accept it. Took about 10 minutes for store employees to verify that it was real before they would let me pay for my groceries with it.
Nice to see the Space Coupe drawn as imposingly large. Gould had a habit of making it seem (from the outside) as no larger than a VW bus.Did the governor bring a magnetic air car along, so he could get around town less conspicuously?And might this derelict farm be near to the spot where Bribery’s henchman dumped his no-longer-powered air car?
How much rent will a realtor get for that trashed Peabody barn?LOL!
Off to a days filming of an episode of CBS’s Instinct. I get to play a crime witness. Maybe I’ll run into Dick and Sam!
A “Rental Farm”? I didn’t know Hertz was in that business.
There is something scratching at the doorway of my mind. Remember when Mysta was going though her transformation, standing over a destroyed gravestone, then in the background there was other possible Moonies? (Can we call them Loonies? – Sorry Mr. Heinlein (giggles))
The moon Governor is starting to suggest that he is unaware of this, for notice he says “Moonling” not “moonling(s)”
I hope American Pickers (History Channel) don’t show up looking for old motorcycles or service station signage…
Easily over 100 Comments for three days running.
That makes this interlude anything but a snooze.
Gov has a plan. He has a hidey-barn. He has money (lots of it!).
I reckon he’ll be paying a visit to Mysta Chimera in short order (in strip-time).
How, if at all, will this affect the Bribery and Nitrate storylines? Will Gov be crossing paths with any of the concerned parties?
In America 2017, the governor’s antennae won’t make him stand out, but his use of cash will.
How did the Moon Governor manages to squeeze that huge space coupe into the small barn?
Opening bell’s been moved.
