    *"…he didn’t actually make any death threat. Having someone killed is certainly not out of the realm of possibility, but it hasn’t been promised"*

    True !
    But can we ignore that look of ‘alarm’ on and Apollo’s face, and his eyes - in wide circles expressing that “We’re Dead Fish Dead !” (?) (3-25-2015)*


    One has to give careful “thought”, (some measure of credence, perhaps?) - to the deeper meaning of that goodbye’ Slogan in their criminal circles ! ?

    A truly beautiful picture of Moon Maid -

    Thanks Pequod, this serves to remind, to warm the memories, of the recent past and brings on a surge of ENTHUSIASM - to see her in the pages of Dick Tracy again.


    Have always enjoyed your reach for neatness, and the clean, pristine, photo-like quality, that always accompanies your Tracy reproductions.


    Know that ‘care’ plays a big part, but often I’ve wondered what make/type of scanner/printer you use ?

    “Yeah, but then Mr. Bigg let them off the hook. Or so it seems . . .”

    Glad you put up the strip with the “real culprits” -i.e. Méliés (in charge of the ‘ground’ operation), and Venus - responsible for that wider Blackheart objective on the Space Coupe.
    At least, that’s how I’ve been seeing it !


    He actually blamed his new recruits, diverting blame from the fumbling failures of his old team ?


    I’d have ‘half expected’ to see Venus’ grey-haired mother there, held by T-bolt in one hand and in the other, shaking Méliés’ wife’s neck - (if in life, the latter had ‘somehow’, managed to find one?)
    You’ve got to think, he does a little more than occasionally tweak the mustache, comb his beard, or "wink"’,’ whenever he tilts his head up - for a look at the Moon ?
    You begin to appreciate these idiosyncrasies when you realize, it’s the only hair - that’s ever grown on this man.


    But that day, it was miscarriage of - Criminal Justice !
    There is no ‘honour’ among thieves !

    @ Chris Sherlock


    Well with the addition of the 3 living Munro Bros, I think you have just ‘BLOWN’ the eight member theory of the Go Comics comment page . . .
    It was really fanciful thinking after someone did a simple head count on the number of characters ‘present’ in that one panel strip on the 28th.
    Obviously, the operation has a large staff in Europe, and in Tracy city lesser local lights we are still to see.


    Good thing now that B-B Eyes rushed and (unexpectedly), recruited Doupleup and Mumbles . . .
    or - they’d have had to frame, and hang, an upside down 6 Of Hearts ! - for the visiting Bigg Boy ! ;- )

    Blaze Rize - a dominatrix ?
    And you don’t think, she could whip cream ?


    That seems pretty accurate from her current ‘appearances’ today. . .
    But here she is, back in October 2011 in a different mood - mind you, nothing Sexual . . .

    But at the very least, a near instant ‘bowel movement’ . . . or more satisfying, a touch of sadistic pleasure, as her bullet RIPS through the forehead of Ms, Flakey Biscuits (who earlier had killed her twin sister Hot Rize) !

    @ Neil
    @ Gweedo


    Neil’s right !
    The salient problems (Plural) with that 8 of Hearts card, really*-* not only are the hearts colored black (guess – ‘reflective’ of the name of the Group) but what’s further unusual, and holding one’s eye attention, is that the entire*framed* card picture of Black Hearts has been installed/ hung in - an “UPSIDE DOWN” position ?
    Presented that way, both today and back on March 28
    On a “conventional” 8 symbol - playing card, the top 5 Hearts would be in an upright position, while 3 of them, would face down in reverse manner.


    The presentations of Mar, 28 and again today, have the pictures hung “upside down”

    .
    A look back to last year 10-28-14 shows the same wall picture (behind Venus) but properly hung in an upright manner,


    Discerning, ‘sharp as a tack’ spot by Neil !


    And we’re all left to wonder on the specifics of yet another ITEM - what’s . . . the ‘significance’ of the numeral “8” to the Group ? . . .
    Eight ‘Senior Leaders’ ??
    If we don’t count Méliés, (think) - he’s a notch down, below Venus and Apollo, and of course - Mr. Bigg . . .
    But who, and where (?) are the other Five ?
    Still to be introduced ?


    Further, haven’t done a good back check. but do have a feint recall, of a framed Blackheart numeral “6” card - on one occasion ! ?

    " Looking back on it, I think it was the harsh directional light coming from the alley, more than any other factor, that accentuated the boniness and wrinkliness of the HAND in that scene."

    Really do enjoy, these occasional ‘esoteric’ (recherché?) observations !

    " Méliés … If it’s his real head, I don’t see how his neck could support it. It would be too top heavy . . .
    -——————————————————-


    Well, if there was near nothing inside, there shouldn’t be a problem*. . .* ?
    And in his business, it doesn’t take much brains to pull a trigger !


    Theoretically, he was in ‘operational’ charge on the ground (9-29-13) with the Munro Bros, Dr, Sail and Dr. Ghote, yet didn’t seem to be ‘mentally’ there or even ‘aware’ , on what happened with and after - the Space Coupe theft ! ?


    Should have had some communication device with pilot Flash Munro ?


    Would love to have read his final written report to Venus !

    “I dug around in the 2013 Mysta-ry and found evidence that the Blackhearts probably will go after Mysta at some point . . .”
    -———————————————————————-


    I thought the point of recreating Mysta (Moon Maid) and at huge cost, was to use her as a ‘tool’ via Diet Smith, to acquire/steal a Space Coupe ?


    One should give some measure of credit to their intelligence services - in realizing that Smith’s actions have ensured that none, are available (not even helpful - building or technology plans) remain there to be stolen.


    From that ‘perspective’, her usefulness seems
    “dead fish dead” !*
    And I’d guess, they’re unlikely to be ‘aware’ of her internal developments - growing natural powers - that are now strengthening her abilities ! ?


    Am I missing something ?

    Beautiful updates in verse by Pequod77 and avenger 09
    But if I could be ‘forgiven’, may I add just a line . . .


    “Cross Mr. Bigg - and live on in fear ?
    A disproportionate example, B.D. Eyes with a tear
    While Méliés and Venus escaping, not even a glare (?)
    In the past guilty ones died, today they were - spared !
