Synopsis

The adventures of this iconic square-jawed detective fighting a menagerie

of grotesque villains remains one of the highlights in the history of not just

comics but crime fiction in general. The series is ripe to introduce to crime

prose readers who haven't previously ventured into comics.



Tracy is

on the trail of the aptly-named Mr. Bribery and his equally grotesque sister,

Ugly Christine, in a story that also features a substance-abusing witch doctor

and a shelf of shrunken heads. Meanwhile, newlyweds Junior and Moon Maid enter

the story, and Dick Tracy's troubles are compounded when he comes face to

face with master criminal Haf-and-Haf, one side of whose face is hideously

disfigured. Included are all strips from December 27, 1965 to July 2,

1967.

Chester Gould (1900-1985) was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma, the son of a newspaperman and grandson of a circuit-riding preacher. He attended Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State University) before transferring to Northwestern University in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1923. He produced the minor comic strips Fillum Fables and The Radio Catts before striking it big with Dick Tracy in 1931. Originally titled Plainclothes Tracy, the rechristened strip became one of the most successful and lauded comic strips of all time, as well as a media and merchandising sensation. He was twice accorded the "Cartoonist of the Year" Reuben Award by his peers. Gould continued to write and illustrate Dick Tracy until his retirement in 1977.
