    Things are looking grim for Paulo. I think Punjab might have to step in and save him.

    Morning, Vista Bill! Hmmmm……I know this is a comic, but the coincidence of this meeting is really stretching it, lol. I’m really enjoying the story, although it seems more like Little Orphan Annie than Dick Tracy at this point…..

    I’m thinking this has the makings of a great screenplay. Does anybody know if Warren Beatty still owns the rights to Tracy? Or is he a free agent?

    Paulo, Henrik, Asp, Punjab. All together now.
    Who do think you has the lowest life expectancy? Or, another approach: which thug would have the most intel of value to offer to the Special Methods of Interrogation of the two friends of Annie?

    Didn’t the informant have some kind of heart attack at the station a week or so ago? Did I miss something during then & now?

    Speaking as a long time fan of both Dick Tracy and Annie, I really think this is the best comic strip arc I have read in a very long time.

    Paulo had his “attack” or whatever it was, on July 8. On July 14 we were told that he had fled the hospital.

    Yesterday, tsull2121 in his ’ critique ’ of the current DT writing STYLE - observed . . .

    " . . . agree or disagree I don’t really care, but it would be NICE if the stories didn’t jump all over the place and leave other stories hanging.

    Maybe one of these days we’ll get a story that’s allowed to run straight thru, from beginning to end - without “cutaway scenes” that build up to the next story running thru them."


    Perhaps you haven’t read a Tarzan novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs ?

    The first tale was “Tarzan of the Apes” (1912) and in the series some 23 further full-length books APPEARED
    Happily, I’ve read most of them !

    One thing a new reader noted almost immediately was the superb skill the Author used by Chapters end, to have a tense, critical situation, and most (I for one) . . . could hardly wait to ‘flip the page’ to read the new chapter to see HOW the character survived / escaped !
    And then came - the DISSAPOINTMENT !

    Chapter 2 went ’ somewhere else ‘, like a completely new story, (different characters) Yet, one in which you would soon become equally involved, only to find that at Chapters end there would be yet another crisis - AND Chapter 3 would then open with the solution to the problem from back in Chapter 1 !
    Chapter 2’s crisis scenario, would be addressed in Chapter 4 !*

    It’s a scenario that would be repeated in chapter after chapter, and putting aside one’s initial ’irritation*, you eventually realized it was a BRILLIANT story writing technique.
    Hard to put the book down ! !

    I’m going to guess that Mike’s read these books too, perhaps with a similar experience (?) - and give credit, was ASTUTE enough - to ’ borrow ’ part of the technique to keep readers like us in DT (on occasion), possibly annoyed ? But still firmly " hooked ", waiting - impatiently for the Answers ! ? ;- )

    I’d think, it’s a part of the reason we have so many readers commenting here ! ??

    Another day of stellar art as the tension mounts. There are two major arcs in this story: Thunder Island and Tracyville. On Thunder Island we have Annie and Tracy. Axel is a villain who is very interested in the progress of Kenyon’s work. In Tracyville we have the MCU and Asp & Punjab: two main threads of the Tracyville arc. The MCU is working with Warbucks, whose ward has been abducted. The MCU, led by Sam Catchem, is focused on finding Tracy and Annie. Asp and Punjab are working on their own, unfettered by traditional law enforcement constraints. They have located the escaped informant, Paulo, and, by happy coincidence, the infamous “Butcher of the Balkans.” Diet Smith’s current R+D focus may or may not play a role in this case. Smith is questioned by Catchem because he has Tracy’s Wrist Wizard. Alas, Smith can shed no light on Tracy’s whereabouts.
    .
    Looking over the crossover, we see approximately five days or so spent on each arc as the story shifts back and forth. I don’t find these transitions confusing or jarring, simply the result of a story complex and rich enough to include many characters and locations. I find the twists and turns captivating.

    The Butcher is working for Axel too—but he doesn’t think its 1944. Interesting….I think this means there’s a mass hypnosis on the island, and not time travel…
