    Gather round me people, a story I will tell
    About the dreaded Blackhearts, Tracytown knows them well.
    Mr. Bigg has called a meeting, attendance mandatory
    To skip it disrespectful, the results rapid and gory.
    .
    Doubleup is Doubleup, he chews his cabbage twice
    BB Eyes, a vicious mug, cross him and pay the price.
    Mumbles is hard to discern, his words just so much mush
    Méliès appears so debonair, yet all your dreams he’ll crush.
    Apollo is all vanity, a silk adorning boor
    T-Bolt skilled in MMA, she’ll bounce you out the door.
    .
    Blaze is a small package, yet still waters run so deep
    Venus is the Blackhearts’ Queen, her suitors known to creep
    Outside her boudoir chamber, with brains in a dense fog
    Thrilled to wear the collar, they live to be her dog.
    Fishnet and lace, she sets a pace that few men can maintain
    Craves passion and subservience, or else she pulls the chain.
    .
    Mr. Bigg, the King of crime, rules larceny, scams and vice
    Hard work richly rewarded, while bunglers pay steep price.
    See the curtain rising on more crime and punishment
    The Blackhearts rule in Tracytown, much to its detriment.

    Two questions. 1. Where is Mr. Bigg’s ring? 2. Why doesn’t the boss’ hand doesn’t look as old as when seen previously.? And, I know I made this guess once already when trying to figure out the 2nd Mr. Crime’s identity, but are we FINALLY seeing Cheater Gunsmoke in the DT strip?!! (I will now remove my tongue from my cheek!)

    and the man at the throttle was Casey Jones.

    So he’s the mysterious Mr. Bigg.

    Love it when Joe draws larger-than-usual panels, or single-panel “Splashes.”

    Well, there you have eight of them, along with “the hand.” I don’t suppose we’re going to see more than the hand anytime soon. Now that we see Mr. Bigg’s hand close up, it doesn’t look as old and scrawny as some people were speculating.

    “… you are all wondering why I returned …” Aparently, he returned by his own will, so that doesn’t sound like he just got out of jail.

    “And yet…” Yes, the Moon Maid Project is the crux of the problem. Which ones disappointed him on the Moon Maid Project? I guess that would be the two in the middle (plus the still-missing Munros).

    This is the point in a Bond film where an underling would be killed to show that the “Big Boss” means Business.

    Could Double-Up’s days be numbered?

    Be numbered?

    Great poem once again. That pretty much sums it up.

    The gang is assembled, and they’re waiting to hear
    Who will receive praise and which one’s will know fear
    Success they have had but it is never enough
    The boss is demanding and his punishment tough
    All those who have tried to destroy his regime
    Have quickly encountered a fat lady sing
    He baffles thier plots with impossible moves
    Defying all logic he shakes and he groves
    Alone he has caused a great fear to take hold
    For no one would dare cross Sydney The Bold!

    So nicely done! I chuckled at the the …“brains in a dense fog…thrilled to wear the collar, they live to be her dog…” was so funny!

    Two things in today’s strip that fit with my Penguin theory:

    1. Mr. Bigg uses a cigarette holder. This fits well with the Penguin identity, since cigarette holders are a Penguin trademark:



    2. At the the far right side of the panel, under Mr. Bigg’s hand, it looks to me as though we have a glimpse of Mr. B’s large, protruding stomach:



    Compare this with the 2013 silhouette of the Penguin:



    BINGO!

    Another good one, a keeper, thanx for sharing!

    Mr. Bigg’s hand is much less dessicated today.

    Proper hydration?
