1 September 2008: Cold Opening, Failed Artist.....

Here we are at the beginning of the New-Runs. Will Lynn have Elly at the reception talking about the past again or is my hunch that the clock suddenly turn back without warning correct?


Comics Curmudgeon mainstay poteet confirmed my suspicion that Lynn went right back to Early Years without any sort of explanation. Lynn, A Failure Is You!!

Panel 1: Here we are, back in the past. We see Young Elly walking down Main Street Milborough with Mike and Liz in tow. Looking at a woman in sunglasses carrying a dachsund puts the idea of wanting a dog in Mike's head and he thus pleads with Elly for a puppy.

Panel 2: Her response: she doesn't want a dog. He says it would be his dog.

Panel 3: He says that he would take care of it and then follows that with a barrage of "Pleases". The realization that she'd be the one to shriek at it because of her stupid assumption (that she'll never shake) that it's supposed to behave like a sixty-one year old wash-up in a dog suit vause her eyes to disappear and reiterate her refusal.

Panel 4: He then asks if he can have something else that's alive.

Summary: Although this is new, it IS close enough in style to the older material to confuse people into thinking that it's Classic Foob. This is a double-edged sword because a lot of newspaper editors night think that it's straight re-runs and drop it.

ETA: Well, at least the original secondary characters still have a place in the New Order of things. Why else would Connie be featured in the current banner?
