    What did Abner look like when he was well?

    As this is such a formal prison, that’s “Ms. Trembly”.

    Oh, maybe Quiver will introduce Rikki to cousin Shaky, and a new power couple will be born. Once they all escape from prison of course.

    Good morning, Hell seed carriers !

    Besides looking as good as Abner did when he was well the kid will also be as full of hell.

    The warden is hurriedly preparing transfer papers to a state where R. vs W. is still holding.

    Good morning™, everybody!

    It’s very convenient that she has such a friendly cellmate as Quiver to talk to. I’m not sure where Quiver acquired the extra “v” in her name.

    If the disease was communicable, Rikki probably would have gotten it. I believe we were led to believe that Abner got his affliction from experimenting with makeup, so that wouldn’t be communicable.

    Ricki sings “Abner,Abner Kadaver, I’m glad I reached up and grabbed ya”! to the tune of Abracadabra as she relishes the fact she is expecting!

    Nice to know. But how this will influence on Rikki’s life in the jail right now?

    You hope, Rikki – this is Tracytown, after all, and the villain body count demands… replacements.

    Nothing a woman looks forward to more than a prison pregnancy! Especially when the father is dead! What great news!

    I have a ‘trivia’ question (that I don’t have an answer to) for the historians of the group: How many times did Abner Kadaver die in this strip? (obviously just once, but I guess I’m looking for how many times was he presumed dead..)

    I know there’s overcrowding in prisons,but putting these two in the same cell amounts to aserious miscalculation,

    As for how this deed could have been done,Abner&Rikki had a few days privacy last year.Remember“the shower scene”?

    Eventually reality is going to sink in.You don’t want your kid born with a number on its back.

    Does that mean the new “Ace” is actually Abner? Trying to figure out the tie-in.

    Another Take  2 months ago

    1-CUZ: I’m really jonezin’ for some “Hair Color”. Can you hook me up?

    2-RIKKI TIKKI TAVI: You bet. I got assigned to the Beauty Shop. Look – I don’t even wear rubber gloves when I do a dye or bleach job. It’s not like it’s gonna turn my skin blue or something. HAR HAR HAR!

    *3-…so, which direction, blonde or black?

    CUZ: “Hair Color” is prison slang for heroin you dolt!

    RIKKI TIKKI TAVI: DUH! And “blonde or black” is slang for “flavored” or “unflavored” so you’re the dolt!

    CUZ: Oh. Sorry. I forgot. Lemme think… So if I order Blonde hair color, you’ll sell me flavored heroin, right? RIKKI Right.

    CUZ: What’s the code for “on credit”?

    RIKKI There ain’t one but a boot in the ass means CASH ONLY!

    CUZ: I miss the old days when the only prison slang was shiv and shank even though I mixed ‘em up a… OWWW! I’M LEAVIN’ ALREADY!

    Rikki and Quiver….are they going to be the “Thelma and Louise” of this storyline?

    “He was terminal, but it wasn’t communicable”, hope she got two or four doctor’s opinions to verify it.

    I had a thought but chose to perish…Rikki gives birth to an infant who looks like “Rosemary’s Baby”. I remember the ads for that film “Pray for Rosemary’s Baby”.

    Somehow, I get the feeling that Quiver is going to use the birth of Rikki’s baby to escape jail…

    In the real world, once a baby is born to an inmate, it is either taken by the inmate’s family or put in foster care…

    As I mentioned in an earlier response… My wife was a correctional nurse in the state womens’ prison and that was the standard operating procedure for pregnant inmates…

    In panel one, Quiver looks like she’s cold and shivering from the way her arms are positioned.

    Um, I’m pretty sure Rikki told Abner she was pregnant as he was dying (again) after hinting at ‘news’ for a number of strips leading up to it. So… if she already knew, how is the doctor giving her ‘the best news of all’?

    According to Rikki, Abner is the daddy (but occasionally moms have been wrong on that issue). The child, assuming Rikki is right, will be untainted, probably big and strong. Rikki’s cellmate, Quiv(v)er, may join her in a breakout: I just have a feeling that Rikki is not going merely to sit there in that cell and count the days until she gives birth.

    Time drones on….

    What’s Rikki doing in jail? She would never do anything wrong! With those orange eyes and grey green skin, of course she’s an angel from heaven! Some one needs to step in here.

    Yes, it’s Shaky’s niece – Quiver! Her brother is in jail as well for a bombing charge if I recollect correctly!
