    Llewellenbruce, are you talking about the person standing next to the Fifth in the middle panel? That’s Ed Garcia, the (young) guy who worked for Diet Smith and is helping the Fifth steal Thor’s Hammer.

    Of course, it’s a good bet neither Ed or the Fifth is long for this world….

    Good morning, Bill!

    So is that syndicate rule about how many times Tracy’s allowed to fire his weapon still in effect? Staton and Curtis strike me as the kind of guys who just might break that rule, daring their employer to do something about it.

    If I was Lizz, I wouldn’t be still standing up. I would be down on the floor making a smaller target.

    Garcia looks comfortable with his role in one murder and an impending second murder.

    Nitpicks: does Dick’s fedora contain a video gunsight? Because it looks like the brim would block his view here. And do cops still fire warning shots?

    I am loving this story, but my one small disappointment is Lizz’s passivity in today’s strip. Granted she’s had a gun on her to this point, but since Flyface was holding the weapon and is now toast, I’m surprised she didn’t immediately leap into action and do some jiu jitsu moves on the two creeps while Thor’s Hammer was recharging. It’s something the Lizz of old would have been planning to do (her only possible chance of surviving, given she couldn’t count on Tracy showing up), but instead, she’s just standing there waiting to get zapped. I guess you could argue she was stunned by the first blast, but given the look on her face and the way she’s whispering to Tracy, she doesn’t appear to be dazed or hurt in any way.

    Oh well, I can live with it, particularly since Tracy has now taken charge.

    @BillT: Dick Tracy don’t fire no steenkin’ warning shots. (evil grin)

    No Dick! Don’t shoot! Hide in the airplane hanging from the ceiling! Wait for the strong man and fat lady to save you! Get your thermal imaging cards out! Wait for the little robot to crawl out of the big robot! What has HAPPENED to this comic strip????

    A good thing has happened to this strip.

    No time for warning shots, and while Bill T mentions Tracy’s hat getting in the way there isn’t time to aim either. This is one of those moments where you fire as soon as you get the gun pointed in the right direction.

    Nice detail: Flyface’s hand in panel three.

    I’m not complaining that Dick didn’t fire a warning shot; I think warning shots are a bad idea. That bullet will go somewhere, which puts innocent people at risk. I understand that warning shots are against some department policies for that reason (for that matter, I can’t recall the last time the news reported that any cop fired a warning shot.)

    Beside, would a warning shot deter the Fifth? Under the circumstances Dick would be an idiot if he didn’t shoot to kill.
