The most iconic comic-strip heroes of all time is back in an eye-popping reboot! The All-American detective just made the biggest collar of his career, and it only cost him his job! Here are 5 reasons why you should get Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive
Very nice, but one minor nitpick: "flattop" wasn't a "popular aircraft carrier of World War II" but a nickname for any aircraft carrier. Thank you for this. Moon Maid
My pen name, Fly, comes from Flyface in the strip. Back in the day, his readers got involved. Gould had a contest to name this uncomely lady with a face like 5 miles of bad road.
Shiny handcuffs engraved with the Dick Tracy logo were recently sent to several dozen of the largest toy buyers in the world. Things went slightly awry when Playmate Toys, which sent the keyless handcuffs as a promotional gimmick, received a frantic phone call from one of the buyers. The local police eventually freed the woman from her predicament.
They were really great then. My favorite strip was Dick Tracy, for all kinds of reasons. For one, it took place in Chicago and Tracy was square of jaw and heroic.
Previously in Dick Tracy: The detective with the squarest jaw in town is always on the job, trying to bring law and order to the city and keep the gangsters in check. Dick Tracy Forever 1 features a couple of short stories with an epilogue that ties back into the first one, so I get the impression there is a longer plot involved. It begins with Tracy finding out that The Brow is out on parole already, and planning to keep an eye on him.
It's time someone came out and said it—Chester Gould's Dick Tracy is bonkers. Stark raving crazy. But it's an American crazy—we feel at home in it.
The Complete Dick Tracy Vol. Flyface had light hair, and a wrinkled face. He was heavyset, and typically wore a bow tie and a sweatervest.
It will be good, no matter what! After all, it is still night-time if just barely. On the other hand she has to have some variety of clothes these days.
