    Every strip a treasure. Thanks for sharing.

    “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?” is the opening song on R.E.M.‘s Monster album (1994). Not one of their best, although they rawk harder than usual. It was just a wee wink to reference it in response to Tracy’s wrist wizard exchange with Honeymoon on her laptop.

    Whiff. Obviously referencing REM…in response to Tracy strip, so “Richard.” Get it? No? Never mind.

    What is the frequency, Richard? Naturally, the Wrist Wizard works in wondrous ways. Wise of Honeymoon to share the link.

    All the rumpus has left the little tyke tuckered out. He is in good hands. When he awakes will he have a moniker? The Man in Black knew not to name a boy Sue.

    Our young detectives/investigators are doing due diligence. They discover a disturbing dialogue discussing a diabolical device that is decidedly deadly.

    The Baby King knows he is going to lose. His people have poll numbers and he shows zero interest in appealing beyond his base. He will say his loss was due to voter fraud, which does not exist. He does not want a second term. He wants to avoid prison. I predict he will flee the country and live in exile.

    Gould was a master of weaving melodrama into various crime stories. Junior’s adventures alone, as a crimestopper and later as a young man looking for love, contain numerous instances of melodrama.

    Good advancement of the story. Hope is not at all calculating. She misses her murdered sister. Wishing to buy a car with a piece of her inheritance is not suspicious. Charity looks away from Hope as she says she wishes Faith was with them. She is already looking into ways to grow her inheritance. I see Charity as the suspicious one. Does she have a connection with Stokes? Time will tell. Hope had better hope she lives long enough for a joy ride or two.
