Alley Oop’s time-travel adventure, fantasy and humor story line was well known to the public back in the day. Alley Opp was a syndicated comic strip created in 1932 (fifteen years before these comics hit the store shelves) by American cartoonist and Iowa native V. T. Hamlin . Hamlin continued drawing the strip until 1973, and Alley Oop newspaper comic strips are still being produced to this day by Jack and Carole Bender.
Argh! Brunette pirate holding a sword! This Alley Opp #13* published in 1947 features “Ooola,” gun-toting pirate and girl-friend of Ben Grimm like cave-man Alley Oop. They traveled back in time three-centuries to the Florida coast in Reed Richards like genius Dr. Wonmug’s time-machine chasing evil G. Oscar Boom.* Sold copy
