Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 13 August 2013

Today's strip has Elly out of her mind with worry because she has to meet Michael at the plane while relying on scary, scary strangers that she can't POSSIBLY trust (what her not having grown up with them) to find Lizzie.

(Strip Number 679, Original Publication Date, 14 August 1984)

Panel 1: Elly is panicked by the PA announcer stating that Air Canada flight 119 is arriving from Vancouver.

Panel 2: She yells in frustrated horror as she tells the security officer that her son's plane has touched down and Lizzie's still missing.

Panel 3: The man tells her not to worry and meet her plane because they'll find Lizzie.

Panel 4: Since actually having to speculate as to what Lizzie is doing causes Elly to freak out and be paralyzed with fear, she thought-bubbles that she's more hysterical than she is worried. I mean, people might start to thinking that she's an incompetent idiot or something and that would be just horrible.

Summary: HUM!! I just realized that if that guy hadn't told Elly what to do, there'd be two lost kids wondering where Elly was. I guess that someone with a brain should have met Mike at the airport.
