    Amen.

    Perhaps Belle won’t die after all.

    That is one of the many reasons why Dick Tracy is a legend!
    Thank you Team Tracy!

    At the risk of starting an argument, I am way okay with the color in today’s offering !

    A good cop—that’s our Tracy! Maybe now Cinnamon Knight/David and Black Piranha/Stephanie can get themselves on a more real life track….

    I think Belle is going to pull through. Also, if she turns State’s Evidence against Broadway. She might also avoid doing some jail time.

    I’ve enjoyed this story but am a little confused about what happened here. Obviously Tracy was tracking BP and CK, which strongly implies the costumed duo had contacted him in hopes of setting up an arrest of Belle and her accomplices. Assuming this is what happened and BP and CK were cooperating to help the police, why would CK offer to give himself up to Tracy?

    My guess is that he feels guilty, about what happened to Belle, not to mention getting his Gf? Wife? shot up! (Hey Staton, are they married, or what?)

    About panel 3
    My take on it is that Belle was unaware that Broadway intended to open fire on the costumes. I think she thought he was going to abduct them, using the armored car, and take them someplace.
    I believe she intended to ask Broadway if they could get Black Piranha to join her and Broadway, or in some other way recruit her. I think she really likes Stephanie. Not unlike her relationship with Harley, or Harley’s relationship with Ivy
    They were also planning to see what her connection to The Cinnamon Knight was.
    It was Cinnamon Knight they were interested in taking out, since he is the crime fighter.
    Unfortunately for her, Broadway had other plans. He wanted them all DEAD!

    well, the way I see it is that Belle was having 2nd thoughts about the whole thing for some time: The first clue was when she was so pleased that Bates had decided to postpone the hit until AFTER Xmas; if Belle were really the sociopath her (ex?) BF is, she’d have been upset, cause she’d be impatient to get the thing done; instead, she had a huge smile and sounded relieved. The next clue was how she was enjoying the thought that she and Steph might team up someday; she seemed totally sincere (Something yesterday’s strip confirmed) And the best clue that Belle had changed her mind was the strip where the hit actually took place… look at the pic carefully, Belle is at least 14 or 15 feet AHEAD of Steph, yelling to her BF “Broadway it’s me!” A) She wouldn’t have said that if she didn’t know about the hit (She’d have said something like “Broadway, what are you DOING?”)
    B) If Belle hadn’t changed her mind , she would NEVER have taken the lead, she would have let the other 2 costumes go on ahead, to bait the trap; whereas, she put herself between the gunners and their 2 targets, no doubt hoping that Bates would spare Stephany and likely recruit her to the gang (as you suggest), not realising that she was a 3rd target, all along! For these reasons, I believe that Belle was in earnest about wanting to make a friend of Steph!

    The key words are : "My Christmas present saved our live*S* , yes, Belle is alive and looks as if she’s in much better shape than she believed herself to be in, last night.

    I hope that David now does the right thing, and goes to the Police Academy, he’s a strong, tall, compassionate, intelligent man, who I think would make a fine Policeman (And I could see Tracy taking him under his wing); as for Steph, if she & David aren’t married, well, let’s just say that “on camera” weddings are another “Gouldian” tradition :)

    Now, as far as Belle goes, I hope she sees the light, testifies, (putting Bates in the “Bighouse” for good), for a reduced sentence, or possibly amnesty, and becomes a good citizen again, with the help of her new friends!

    Belle would make a totally cool addition to Tracy’s crime fighting unit……in my opinion, Mike and Joe have succeeded in making her a rather unique and enjoyable personality…..you know, fun and lively, and in the end,very likeable and charismatic……which would be a nice counter balance to Dicks super serious demeanor…anyways, another really, really enjoyable story and a tip of the hat to the dynamic duo of Curtis and Staton!!!
