Dick Tracy-On television?
« on: January 05, 2017, 03:50:02 PM »
The one with the the blue suit and the red tie? ;)

Kind of meta-fictional here, with references to other comic strips. I haven't followed Dick Tracy in decades. I checked the Return of the Moon Maid sequence awhile back, and knew that Joe Staton was doing the series now. Every once in awhile I have gone back (I thought The Mole was dead?). So, yeah, when I saw the late Denny Colt, I started checking it out every day.

Now we have Pouch, Carrion & Julia, The Dragon Lady, and a reference to a certain bronze-skinned adventurer. I don't know what is going on, but it looks like fun. :)

Joe Staton is one of my favorite artists, so I was pleasantly surprised back when he was announced as the new artist. (I got a sketch of the Huntress from him at a convention.) I think he fits the strip very well.

The Little Orphan Annie comic strip ended years ago, and on a cliffhanger. The story was actually resolved later on in the Dick Tracy strip, and both Annie and Daddy Warbucks have appeared a few times since.

The only thing I don't like is that Curtis and Staton have resurrected some villains that Chester Gould had killed off.

No. I was referring to BB Eyes and a few other characters.

The Mole was never killed off. He actually went to prison and reformed. It was the Mole's niece Molene who was killed off. (And Pouch killed Johnny Scorn, who was sort of responsible for her death, and actually got away with it!)

I thought The Mole was killed when he ran his car into a train (or vice versa). They showed the body and everything. I wonder who this was instead?

This would have been about 1964...

The only villain I know of who died by crashing a car into a train is the Brain. But that was 1975.

The Mole was a one-shot villain. He was captured alive in the initial case and had reformed by the time he was released from prison.

(I used to have a hardback book with several early cases in it, and the Mole case was one of them. Unfortunately, I no longer have the book.)

Well, according to the Dread Pirate Roberts, they're terribly comfortable.

ME-TV runs Perry Mason twice a day. Right now, the morning episodes are from the first season or so. In one show, Perry and Paul are discussion a case while, sitting on the desk between them, is what looks to be a framed pic of dick Tracy by Chester Gould...

And at some time in the past, the shadow of a certain felonious flightless fowl appeared...
