Father once told her the story
Of Moon Maid’s heroic deed
A blizzard, mother and new born
Swift action in time of need.
Conditions were nearly white-out
Mother protected the pair
Saw that her rare skills were needed
Good-hearted, she had to dare.
Here today laden branches sway
Ugly Crystal turning to ice
Time slows beyond her counting.
Time for Honeymoon to step up
All praise the young detective
She shall take heed of one in need
Her father takes directive.
Lunarians don’t feel the cold
Still it may do grievous harm
Honeymoon huddles with her friend
Sounds emergency alarm.
I guess this is a total wrap.
Perfect time for Honeymoon to discover her heat power.
“Life sign”? Is it a Star Trek tricorder? What exactly can the wrist wizard do?
I suppose that it might mean that it has an infrared sensor that detects Crystal’s body heat.
She needs to turn up the juice !
Here’s hoping Junior’s Wrist Wizard can hone in on Honeymoon’s.
She’s thinking: “Hurry Dad…” I wonder if Grandpa will hear her?
Definitely an odd bounce for the story to take.
Q: Why does she wear a jacket if she doesn’t feel the cold?A: Since when did any parent ever believe a child who said that? They MAKE her wear it.
Good morning™, life forms!
So, the Wrist Wizard detects signs of life! If I remember right, the Medical Tricorder on the original Star Trek series had that capability.
(I posted this earlier but it’s not here.)
The joy of finding something lost
Irrelevant what may be the cost
Unknown skills or ability
Like the heat from a body that a watch can see
In the end consistancy’s not the score
As long as the readers visit the ads galore
Beautiful job of colouring today by Shane Fisher! The cold blue colours evoke a mood and you can almost feel the cold temperatures and the desperation.
I was looking some old strips and this contrasts with the truly horrific coloration of the first few weeks after the current team took over. I know they were trying to provide some continuity with recent strips at the time, but I’m glad they abandoned such schemes.
Crystal’s a little disoriented, calling Honeymoon “Moon Girl.”
Good morning all y’all. Stay warm.
Now this will go down in the history books. Honey is doing just what her biological mother did so many years ago. Beautiful ending to this strip and this story.
BTW it’d be interesting to see what became of the girl who Mysta saved as well. Maybe something for a later strip?
Never a tauntaun around when you need one…
I just got it. “Ugly” Crystal is going to be taken in not by Ruby, not by Honeymoon’s family, but by B.O. and Gertie! That’s why they have Junior and Sparkle leaving town for a vacation and having the Plentys babysit their kids.
Am I the only one who’s not convinced that the Bribery story is wrapping up? If Matty Squared to take over Rikki Mortis’s systems, “he” is certainly potent enough to manipulate his own environment enough to help Bribery escape.If not now, he could hack into Bribery’s prison later to get him out — perhaps even, going back to his original prison escape, by eventually finding and taking over the “lost” Space Coupe and sending it to the prison roof.So I suspect this isn’t the end of the story, but at most the curtain on Act II, setting up the end to the “trilogy”.
I called it!
@Chris Colvard My day didn’t go exactly as planned but I fixed those bad links on the Banks o’ Plenty page. If you find any other bad links, let me know.
Honeymoon finds and rescues Crystal (most people call her Ugly Crystal) for the moment; now, Junior Tracy has to hurry and help solidify the rescue before the cold solidifies Crystal!
Meanwhile, on the other side of the hill, the wrap-up of the apprehension of Mr. Bribery is taking place; I hope we get to see at least some of it this coming week, or, at a minimum, a “recap” conversation among the MCU back at HQ….
