    That schmuck did shoot her!

    How poignant. Poor Belle!
    The colorists are in vacations, I see. Not that the strip in BW looks bad, not at all!

    Wow. Great storytelling
    Broadway’s plan has backfired big time. Good to see CK and BP coming out of this unscathed.
    Got to wonder if Tracy was tipped off on all this by the police commissioner from that “other city” – I’m sure they were tapping the phones of Broadway’s little brother when B’way called to set up the hit.

    Great art today, especially in panel two. Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s the novelty, but the details seem to jump out more in B&W than color.

    I like the B & W treats. The artwork supports it and maybe even makes the Sundays (when we get ‘em) look all the better.
    I feel bad for Belle. It sounds as though she’s not gonna hold on for long.

    Good morning, marg and V.B..

    Good morning all! I agree, great art today by Joe Staton. Poor Belle, looks like she’s a goner. She learned too late how truly heartless her creep of a boyfriend really is.

    I guess it’s irony. So many of us expected Stephanie to buy the farm, and instead it’s Belle who is gunned down and looks about to expire. Clever Mike! Nice to see Cinnamon Knight (who continues to remind me, visually, of RoboCop) being effective here, too. So, much to Broadway’s chagrin, the “costumes” have overcome the gunsels, though not without casualty….

    I think this is the scenario I never would have expected, I was sure that either Stephanie or Broadway were going to die, I would never have called it this way; I hope she lives long enough to tell the entire story to Tracy, cause BB needs to rot in prison, and at his age, “life” might just be exactly that!
    I hope Staton doesn’t leave it here, I want to know WHY Bates decided to kill such a devoted lover as Belle.

    Morning all. If I was CK I would immediately run to my girl to see if she was okay, even if she waved me off. She was just shot at, and her partner is defiantly down. Forget the pit stop with the bad guys. If Tracy is there, he would probably have some back-up for that. Even if not, the lady’s gotta be first. Just sayin’.

    It wasn’t really obvious yesterday, but, it certainly is now… I wonder if those puddles are water, or Belle’s blood? :s

    As a frequent reader of manga (90% of which is in B&W), I can say with some confidence that yes, the details do jump out more…many manga feature “background dramas” < little action stories going on behind the main action< If manga was in colour, picking them up woul be much harder

    Can we get Locher back? Every six weeks now a classic DT villain emerges only to be killed off 70% of the time. What – is flat top going to come back from the dead only to get killed off in a month and a half? Stop killing off so many of the vintage bad guys! This is getting ridiculous!

    Are you a person from 1912 when the color comics / cinema (silent films) / photography does not exists (or is very expensive) ???

    You recall me people who were against colorizing movies or getting Beatles LPs (CDs) in mono ONLY because it was recorded to be like that…

    Sorry to be aggressive, but I like colors, I like stereo (and music) and I like speaking movies !

    Don’t be bearded and be from this century when we are able to get 5.1 music (in movies too) DVDs or Blue Ray !

    And at last, we have to be cool…

    Gweedo:

    You like black and white strips ? Fire your ‘The Gimp’ software and remove colors from your strips. Do not give bad ideas to some so they stop colors on Dick Tracy just like they stop colors on Tarzan ’even if the original Tarzan daily strips were in black and white).

    I do not ask 3D comic strips (I am not sure I will love that), but let the people continue to provide color comic strips, please.

    Where were you when they started to remove colors in comics ?
    Where were you when they removed comics ?
    Where were you when they removed animated comics ?
    Where were you when they removed colors in movies?
    Where were you when they removed movies?
    Where were you when they removed TV ?

    Do not let the bearded win the progress war !

    Support colors in comics !

    I have to disagree. In the year and 3/4 the new team has been running Dick Tracy six of the “classic” villains have died. Flyface, The Fifth, Cueball, Puttypuss, Panda, and Measles. Of these six, Tracy was only directly responsible for killing The Fifth since it was his shot that made Thors Hammer explode.
    It is still to early to say that Belle is a goner. Broadway Bates was disarmed, but otherwise unharmed.
    Also, Mumbles, B. B. Eyes, Mole, Pouch, and Mina. are still alive and well.
    The status of Moon Maid is still in dispute.

    I’m not sure if I can add the three members of The Mumbles Quartet to the list or not. They sort of fall into the category of henchmen as apposed to villains.
