Alley Oop – Rebooted!


The NEW Alley Oop by Joey Alison Sayers and Jonathan Lemon begins now, January 7, 2019!

And coming Sunday January 13, 2019 = Li’l Oop!



On the occasion of the new Alley Oop Stephen Roth at GoComics interviews writer Joey Alison Sayers and artist Jonathan Lemon.

The new creators expand on how they see their version of Alley Oop going forward (with some, I think, tongue in cheek references). Also some details on what I have been calling “Li’l Oop” but they call “Little Oop“:

Little Oop is going to be very different from Alley Oop, thematically and tonally. Lemon is doing it in a totally separate art style, and the jokes are built and paced differently. Little Oop is in middle school and is dealing with typical pre-teen stuff like crushes, homework, and not getting eaten by dinosaurs.

Stephen, in the introduction, refers to it as “a related, brand-new Sunday strip, Little Oop.”

Hmmm, a new logo? “Alley Oop, featuring Good Ol’ Little Oop”
