    Hmm, this could, and will be, a momentous meeting.

    Good morning, VB! (I liked the armadillo.)

    I like ’em too. Armidillos can hide better than turtles!

    Mornin,’ Vista Bill, Tarry, margueritem, etc.!
    Blackjack’s a Tracy fan?
    Instead of robbing a bank, couldn’t he have just written Dick a nice letter? You know, asking for an autograph, that sort of thing? (Oh yeah, he’d have to give a return address…)
    This smacks of the old west, when somebody’d come to Dodge to challenge the marshall (and end up in Boot Hill).
    This should be some showdown!

    To begin with (respectfully) “Good Morning, Vista Bill”.
    Posted this several days ago, but I’d look & it wasn’t always there. Figured I’d try again:
    First time on this website, but I’ve been watching for some time. Very interesting insights from those of you who comment! I first started reading the strip in 1961 (encouraged by my parents, who were fans!), and my first story line involved Spready Spensive, Duke Keen, and Mona the Mouthpiece (their lawyer who wore a hat that almost looked like a lamp shade & covered the top half of her face). That was followed by the Tommy McConny story (he was an escaped-con-turned-businessman who, while on a golf course, shot a golf ball into a supposedly abandoned home, and accidentally killed an elderly lady who turned out to be Junior Tracy’s birth mother, Mary Steele (not seen for a long time). Next, there was one of my all-time favorites – the story of the Brush who, with his henchman, Hindrix, ran a scam soliciting donations for fall-out victims (Brush supposedly had hair growing from the front of his face (so much so, that you couldn’t see his features). I’m surprised that no websites seem to discuss this period, which I consider to be some of Chester Gould’s best. The same can be said for the 52’s, the Pallette Twins (which featured the return to the strip of B.O.Plenty, Sparkle, & Gravel Gertie after an absence of many years!) Smallmouth Bass & Olga, and on & on. Does anyone agree? Mike Curtis & Joe Staton are doing great work that shows they carefully studied the history and must have Chester Gould sitting on their shoulders. I thank everyone involved so very much for giving me a daily read to look forward to!

    I love this strip. I also love Blackjack not being so green anymore.

    Blackjack is way over the top in more ways than one! He seems to have possibly paranoid fantasies about confronting Tracy (Old West style, as NightShade09 put it), on top of delusions of grandeur (this TV interview, his attention-getting flashy dress neo-zoot suit), as well as sociopathic tendencies (carefully planned and executed bank robberies with a Robin hood-like flair). And he’s got a thyroid problem, too, with those perpetual bugged-out eyes. At least, so I read him up to now….
