    Good morning™, heartfelt goodbyes !

    Is that almost a look of jealousy on Moon Guv’s face ?  Or it could be an expression of intense gratitude; now that Liska said it, he may only now realize the full gravity of Tracy’s deed. If there’s a hot lava session it will only be given notice long after it happened and likely with no parting last panel graphic that is designed to leave us to extrapolate as usual.

    Over at the Dick Tracy Fan Club, Mike Curtis has posted, expressing disappointment that no one seemed to notice that Ro-Zan was named after the pompous Kryptonian official who pooh-poohed Jor-El’s warnings that Krypton was doomed in the first tv episode of The Adventures of Superman from the 1950s. I actually did notice that, but didn’t comment. I wish to rectify that, and as my civic duty, to show that I did notice, point out that Ro-Zan goes back even further to the first episode of the 1940 Superman radio show. You can listen here:

    Ro-Zan starts talking at 2:27.

    Sorry, guys. Escargot coffee isn’t snail-flavored. It’s the Lunarian equivalent of the terrestrial incredibly expensive “Civet Coffee,” which isn’t civet cat flavored. Just Google civet coffee or “kopi luwak.” The truth is out there, and it’s grosser than you imagine!

    Good morning™, everyone!

    For Tracy to remember the quiet moments during his trip is probably better than remembering when someone tried to kill him, although I suppose that people trying to kill him isn’t exactly a new experience for Tracy.

    It looks like Tracy’s Lunarian knowledge goes beyond swear words, but “please” and “thank-you” are pretty basic to any new language.

    Honeymoon’s cousin expects to visit her “some day,” but I think that the movement into the outside world is being put on hold for now.

    “Just put it on your doorstep an set it on fire, Tracy.”

    Too bad he learned the Lunaran language from a Monty Python translation guild. Which explains the little sack of moon dog poop she just handed him. Evidently he’d been trying the local lingo on and off all through the story line.

    the light bulb came on over Mike’s head when he dreamed up S Cargo snail coffee, but what do you want to bet that this morning, a Dick Tracy reader who also happens to be a Starbucks corporate type has decided on a new type of coffee, will implement it into reality and take credit for the idea?… and speaking of thinking up the idea in the FIRST place, what kind of individual could POSSIBLY even IMAGINE dreaming up something so vile and nauseous and repulsive?!?… what does that say for HIS tastes?…LMAO…

    I wonder how the Lunarian word Tracy speaks in Panel 3, which I’m sure translates to “farewell,” would be pronounced phonetically?

    Ah, puppy love. Snail Coffee? Sounds similar to Trivot Cat coffee, neither one generates any interest from me.

    1-SO-NAR: Remember – we’re married now so you can never talk to any Earth boys. HONEY MOONS: Yeah. You bet…

    2-LISKA: I have vast amounts of Antarctic gold available to me but…

    *3- …please accept this pound of coffee as a token of how much I value my husband’s life.

    DT: Are you sure it’s worth this much even? Speaking Lunarian: He’s kind of a dick…

    Liska gave Tracy Snail Coffee when what he really wanted was a string of those Betty Rubble pearls to take home to Tess.

    Since nobody else asked, I will. Why does the armsman in P1 have his hands in the air? What’s going on in the background there? Almost looks like one armsman is pointing his loaded ‘hand’ at another one.

    I wonder if the authors got this idea from Kopi Luwak, the Sumatran coffee harvested from the excrement of civet cats after they’d eaten the coffee berries.

    ‘Twas in the Sheridan Road apartment of my French teacher (at a North Shore private school)/high school classmate friend that I first had escargot—delicious with a melted butter and garlic dip! No reason I can see that escargot coffee should not be just as good. Indeed, that’s probably exactly what Thorin and Tracy have been quaffing all through this story. De gustibus non est disputandum, however….
