I have to agree with you, Ray Toler. I’m ready to see Abner go, and I don’t care for creepy Rikki, either. Something about bloodthirsty murderers who don’t have pangs of conscience that makes me ill.
I agree Abner is an imaginative creation, but I’m ready to see the old boy go. He’s rather a one-trick pony, and sickening to look at, too. People who try to kill Tracy need to die in my opinion, and this will be his third go round. Strike three.
The Fosdick crossover was fun, but this is even better! I hope this is a hint and preview of coming attractions and they’re not just playing with us. A return of the space coupes and moon people would be the.best.thing.ever.
The hole in Fosdick’s hat cracks me up.
“There’s no implication that they were probing there. It’s possible but not really indicated by anything that we actually saw.”I don’t know, Neil. Tracy’s a detective, and he’d be an idiot if he didn’t at least suspect Blaze of being the shooter. Floating the info about Flakey and the way she died had to be more than just idle chit-chat, given the context. I interpreted the conversation the same way as yumpin, that they were fishing for a reaction if nothing else. Interrogators do that sort of thing all the time.
“Bottom line: the villain is rewarded.”Rewarded? Or rescued?I don’t see how Notta is “rewarded” here at all. Her brother saved her from self destruction.I think it’s a beautiful ending.

Hey Willy, I didn’t see the scenes you’ve deleted, but don’t let anyone get you down. You’ve posted some terrific blasts from the past during this story, high quality scans no less, and I’ve enjoyed looking at all of them. I think the regulars here understand you’re trying to build enthusiasm for what’s going on in the new stories by helping people who don’t know the strip’s history to get up to speed. Nothing wrong with that. Everything good about that! When I see fans getting excited about old stories, it’s contagious. It gets people pumped for what’s to come. Your posts have been great advertisements for Dick Tracy, coming from an obviously knowledgable, passionate, and polite fan. No need to be embarrassed, not even slightly. Pequod, Neil, and many other contributors around here do a great job, too! Love the poems and prose and analysis! So, don’t ever apologize for what you do. I hope you do it more! Even if some things get repetitive, that’s all good, too. Not everyone reads the comments every day, and what you do is a good way to build excitement with people who might check in only once in awhile. Like the fan you mentioned that posted yesterday. Keep it up!
This week has been fantastic. Classic characters, mounting tension, strong emotions, beautiful graphics that advance the story with minimal dialogue, and now a little female wrestling thrown in. Wow. Pequod, you are right, this IS a great time to be a Dick Tracy fan!
Definitely! I’m excited to see how this plays out with Blaze and Notta. Having a story with Notta Chin Chillar in the spotlight again has been so fun. I hope she doesn’t die in the end and is around to team up with Bribery some day.
“Panel 4: Blam !!!”That’s my fear, too. Either that, or I hope for Blaze’s sake that she’s a fast talker.
