    A juicy story line?

    This entire prat-fall of an “adventure” was entirely predictable, nay, broadcast to the world as soon as Coltrane joined the team.

    On the other hand, I clicked on the “fast forward to the past” link in the console below the strip and then spent a very enjoyable period moving forward day by day through the beginnings of the strip.

    Oh, how I long for more days like that.

    I’m sorry, but what on earth Dan?!?

    Did you just get divorced? Did your best dog get hit by a car? Did your Mom just pass away?

    I mean, why on earth would you introduce such a fun character as Sophia only to grievously wound her with an injury that should cause her to bleed out within one or two minutes?

    Are you actively trying to drive away the folks who have loyally followed your strip for the last ten years?

    Now have him shoot R.J. Just to show people who is in charge of this comic!

    Ah, the infamous Michael Curtis syndrome, named after the writer for the Dick Tracy comic strip. Shocking events, plots that go nowhere fast. Here’s hoping that DT (not Tracy) gets back his mojo, stat, lest RH remains another DT (Tracy) for good.

    I like how R. J. suddenly morphed into a slightly younger Rip a few days ago.

    TBF, just how distinguishable is RJ from Rip, or Sopapilla (deliciosa) from a younger Cobra?

    And it’s Thursday! How are we going to get to ka-hitty advernture by tomorrow?

    Here’s a juicy storyline: Unaware to anyone involved, TNT had stowed away on the jet and, using his superior hiding skills, kept completely out of sight as he kept an eye on RJ and Sopapilla, learned of the new mission to find Jenkins and eventually sneaked into the truck. Upon realizing that the supposed leader is really one of Jenkins’ stooges and shot Sopapilla, TNT wastes no time in unlocking his inner savagery.

    Because nobody messes with his boy (and his boy’s lady friend).

    There is no such thing as a “needless convolution” in a Rip Haywire adventure. Ka-CONVOLUTE!

    I thought there was something unfunny about that guy.

    Oops. Sorry you weren’t the one to get shot. Good thing I invest in bullets. I still have 3 more full clips and they each carry 9 in the magazine.
