    No, people are just being flippant. It was clear Doc, who we were briefly introduced to a few weeks ago, who shot Tracy.

    That sounds really heavy. You couldn’t go anywhere.

    I know they edited out some panels for reprint comic books.

    That could fix it, but yeah, I think it’s too late to make him “his own grandpa.” :)

    I don’t see how you can tell if she is or is not “willowy but chesty” from a head and shoulders shot, but Ken is right that Joe’s inking makes characters look slightly different than Shelley’s does.

    As for her hair colour, no colour is supplied for Monday to Saturday strips. If a publisher, such as this site, decides to add colours, they have to guess which colours are correct. They can’t know what the correct colours are unless or until they have seen a Sunday strip. They only get the Sundays to or three weeks, at the most, ahead of the weekday ones. They wouldn’t have seen Sally in an officially coloured strip at the time of the teaser strips, but they probably have now, so they were able to make a correction.

    Well, it’s possible that he’s just part of a larger gang, but the more I think about it, the less I believe that. It seems more likely that he is acting alone.

    The use of the word “chore” makes me wonder if this was a chore that he assigned to himself or if someone else ordered this chore to be done. So far, there’s nothing to suggest that he’s not acting on his own initiative.

    Good morning™, questioners!

    So, we get our first good look at the featured villains.

    Sally has orange hair and yellow glasses. I like the look. I notice that she has a sing-songy voice. It’s interesting, but I’m not too sure what that tells us about her.

    Doc has green lens on his glasses which obviously have very thick lenses — the “Coke bottle” kind. Coke used to come in greenish bottles, didn’t it? There is just a hint of buck teeth. It reminds me of Bugs Bunny (“What’s up, Doc?”). I wonder if that’s intentional. A bow tie, suspenders, and a white dress shirt are the clothes that mark his individual style. The hat that he’s wearing certainly could be that of the silhouetted figure we saw in the background at the police station, but I’m still not convinced that that was him.

    Yes, that’s definitely Joe’s style. I expect he’s doing the whole week, because I think they submit one week at a time.

    I don’t even think that an armoured trench coat would really be possible. To be effective, I would think that protective gear would need to be against the body, not flowing free like a trench coat.
