The time is now. The place is the City by the Lake. The man is Dick Tracy. Decades after the era of Al Capone, Pruneface, Ma Barker and Flattop, the good guys are still fighting the bad guys with guns, guts and technology in the continuing saga of Dick Tracy.
Volume one of the new “Calling Dick Tracy!” eBook series by noted artist Joe Staton (Justice Society of America, Green Lantern) and writer Mike Curtis (Richie Rich, Casper the Friendly Ghost) features tough cases and grotesque villains in collected Dick Tracy comic strips.
The current team are doing an outstanding job on Dick Tracy. In an age when many story strips are withering away, they've breathed new life into America's top cop. He's been around for more than 80 years and I now have now doubt he'll be around for a lot longer.
This book is a great collection for Tracy fans new and old. It's a real bargain and includes several months of strips as well as new art and background/bio info.
I wish that the daily strips were presented in their original black and white but realize I may be in the minority. (Perhaps an two versions of volume two could be offered? It doesn't seem like it would be much more work and it would satisfy us purists.)
