    What looks like bifurcation is actuall her horns sticking up. Her head includes the white hair combed forward in a triangle shape between her antenna.

    Vera’s name was a great laughter stimulus for the MCU

    Vera’s immigrant father had 6 children and Vera was the youngest. When Vera was born, his father said, “We’re all done” but with his accent it came out, “Ve’re-a All Did.” Vera tells the story when he is first introduced to the strip. Tracy and company think this is terribly funny and laugh uproariously for several days at his silly name. Vera himself takes it good naturedly and laughs with them. Vera’s step-mother was a relative of BO Plenty. Vera was married to Sparkle but is also her cousin by marriage.

    What do you expect him to do about it?

    This comic strip is popular. It has had an animated movie made of it. It has been adapted into a popular musical comedy. It is in the paper every day. Tracy might be startled by an appearance by a comic strip Moon Maid but I’m sure he’s inured to the fact that this comic strip is out there and people obviously like it.

    We were just talking about having some “movement” within the story.

    Well, it really hasn’t started yet to be claiming it is going downhill. It may flop out but right now, this exposition is necessary to set up the story. We haven’t even gotten to any crime which might involve Dick Tracy so I am hopefully waiting.

    I laughed out loud at #5. I, too, am on the edge of my seat. Unfortunately, my seat right now is the toilet.

    I don’t think Tracy’s mad. I think he is just startled at what Vera has done now. Vera has every right to include a Moon Maid parody in his strip. Tracy just doesn’t have to like it. But not liking something does not mean you are mad.

    The Dick Tracy strip has always included episodes of comedy throughout its run. Several characters in the strip are basically only comedy characters (BO, Gertie). When Vera first entered the strip the MCU Team laughed uproariously for days at the silliness of his name. Vera was more good-natured in those days and laughed along with them.

    But I’m with Neil. I think this is just to show what is happening in Vera’s strip. It may give you a smile but I don’t think it is meant to be hilarious.

    As an Actress, Mysta is a public figure. In order to sue, she would have to prove malice. A private citizen who is not a public figure or official must only prove negligence.
