Good morning™, everyone!
We haven’t seen him for over two weeks, but Yeti is back! Even if he’s impatient for the return of Ape and Ferret (who are indeed close-by), he has to be prepared for whoever might be wandering around in the sewer. I can’t imagine that the foot traffic there is heavy, but you never know.
I think it will be a case of using that!
WOW…I LOVE that white suit he’s wearing. And that side view of his face in panel two is fantastic. I even like that tan background, a lot more pleasing than that baby blue from last week!
Yeti wears a tie to go to work in the sewer?
Good morning™, antsy spiders !
Tracy and Sam should be wearing plimsouls which would render them silent or nearly so. Yeti is hearing his two stooges on their final approach which might just be final if he shoots first…
Judging by the side on of his face, I would suggest that our boy is all muscle under that suit.
The MC has been doing OK, but shouldn’t Yeti be ghost white?
I like it that Yeti doesn’t talk to himself, he just thinks. It always bugged me when comics characters talk out loud to themselves. Thought balloons rock!
Remember how well Joe Staton drew hands? Shelley’s just as good. Her hands are better than some I’ve seen in fine art.
Yeti’s like 2 Batman villains combined, Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy. Are Tracy and Sam Batman and Robin?
Where’s George Clooney?
Good visual today!
Just " super " great images today .
Trigger happy Yetis! Himalayin’ in wait!
“Hi, folks. I’m Yeti. Remember me? I’ll be signing autographs in the lobby after all this.”
Good facial of Mr. Cheerful coming tomorrow.
YETI (thinking): Can’t a man work on his festive holiday tabletop floral decorations without constant interruptions?
It’s cold enough in the sewer where Yeti has his lab, so one can see one’s breath?
1-AL BINO: Where are those two idiots with the groceries? All I’ve got for lunch is this mess o’ greens that were floating by…
2-Sure is cold down here today…or is it my breath from eating so many poop potatoes? I saw on that movie, The Martian, how potatoes grow good in poop and it’s true! And I got plenty of poop right outside my door!
3-Well, one of them has to pay the price for not getting back with my lunch on time. I’d rather it be Ferret but she’s too fast and Ape is a bigger target so it’ll probably be him. I’ll miss humiliating his intelligence though…that dimwit is a banana short of a bunch. OH! That’s a good one! That settles it! Ferret is a goner!
“SPIDER? Is that YOU?”
Bitten by a radioactive spider, Yeti acquires the astonishing powers of Working Really Poorly With Underlings and Evil Grumpiness.
Uh, wait minute. He already…
in all 3 panels it looks like Yeti is breathing very cold air. I don’t recall him doing that in his last adventure
This storyline seems to plod on…I wanna see it wrapped up and Mike come back (or if he’s taking an extended leave, a better guest writer to fill in for the next story!) I’m not saying it’s the worst story in some time (*Mike has never written a bad story)…it just seems kinda…unexciting. It’s TOO much of a filler. I can’t believe Tribune approved this story – most likely they did because it’s a “follow up” to an early one.
Either Yeti’s client list is not as extensive as I was led to believe plus he must not aware of the weather conditions…underground headquarters and everything else.
I guess Ape and Ferret should have announced themselves. The noise must the opening and closing of his door.
Several panels ago, doesn’t Yeti believe that Ape and Ferret snuffed out Moran? Maybe I imagined it.
@retropop…Mike never wrote a bad story!!?? Surely you jest.

OFF TOPIC: Writing dead-serious material is something I don’t generally do. Most of my book series have at least one ‘colorful character.’ ‘Red" Gammon’, the sideman/sleuth who launched in the anthology ALL THAT WEIRD JAZZ, had his n=now-it-all man, The Professor, and a cheerfully deranged morgue attendant. Ditto the lead in NIGHT MAZE, who actually started out with the premise ‘what if Carl Kolchak was a down-and-out P.I. who wanted nothing to do with cults or testy ancient gods’.
However, I can write serious material. Many an illness excuse for my teachers come to mind,
Are t here more than 5 people down there?Maybe Daisy has nothing to do with this story after all.
I’m going back to the 1950’s,when Rughead;one of the Top 5 Tracy villains,met HIS end in the sewer.
And it wasn’t a clean sewer either.Gould took delight indrawing the floating garbage;as if bad guys find their own level.
The death is waiting Ape and Ferret…
This is Thursday night.We’re taken on a tour of the Koskiosco Street sewer.
“And off to the let is the future Wooworths and the Spider Boy House Of Really Exotic Pets. Thank you patronizing Yeti Tours, and don’t think of it as ransom. Think of it as a well-deserved tip!”
Cue either “Mission : Impossible” or James Bond theme. Yeti’s gonna have some unexpected company!
The Albino Herbalist has his trusty poison dart gun handy, just in case. What could possibly go wrong?
Will Ape and/or Ferret survive the week? Will Yeti?
Tracy and Sam are primed for a shootout, and their pistols have probably longer range and certainly more ammo per magazine than Yeti’s presumably gas-powered dart gun. (A typical police issue sidearm these days might hold 17 or more rounds.) And Tracy has called for additional, back-up officers to cover possible exits from that storm drain section….
…like “Mr. Sharpton” in the Stephen King short story “Everything’s Eventual”, Yeti feels more at ease with the world at large when he’s wearing his “lucky tie”……..
