    Haha! Good one. I remember when you cooked up that cereal box during the Mysta story. The box in today’s strip does partly resemble it, come to think of it!

    Those are great poems, Pequod77. Thanks to you, and also CONGRATS TO TEAM TRACY!!

    Flight Suit said, “In an age where sea level rise caused by global warming is accelerating dramatically (experts say California must prepare for 3 feet of sea level rise in this century), it is rather clueless and irresponsible for today’s Crimestopper’s Textbook to encourage people to leave extra lights on all night long. We should be reducing carbon emissions, not increasing them.”

    Al Gore predicted seven years ago that based on “expert” projections, the polar ice cap would likely be gone by 2014. It’s now 2014, and the evidence says that the polar ice cap is actually thicker now, substantially so.

    Good stuff. I don’t understand half of what’s going on in the story, but the art is great and things are moving along at a good clip. Fun!

    “As much as I enjoy “conventional” police work Tracy, I love these dalliances with the far out fantastic. I bet two-way wrist radio tv was big when it first hit the page.”

    I’m the same way. I enjoy the conventional police work and all the far out stuff, too. Equally. Even before the Moon period, there was always a fantastical element about Dick Tracy. Not only the technology, but the villains, too. A lot of the bad guys in this story have been more mutants than “real life” characters. Dick Tracy is grounded in reality, but its also grounded in fantasy. It’s a mix! Always has been. So I embrace it all. Time travel? Messages from the past? Space coupes? Mysta transforming into a moon woman? Yes yes yes and yes!

    Ken in Ohio said, “If it is time travel, then Diet’s remark to Oliver about Moon Gear yesterday – “That’s all in the past” – takes on a double meaning!”

    Good catch! You may be on to something there. It would be just like the new and edgy Diet to do something like that. I hope so. The Space Coupe embodies so much of what Dick Tracy fans of my generation loved.

    Now this is fun.

    Neil Wick said, “I like the way the shading is done along the top of Panel 2.”

    I agree the 2nd panel today is really great. Very retro feel. Well done, Joe Staton.

    I’m trusting Mike & Joe to make this a fun ride. Even on their less great days I never fail to be entertained by this strip.

    I’ll throw in my two cents and say you speak for me too, Pequod77. This new character Mysta is a great addition to the Tracy cast. I wasn’t as big of a moon fan back in the day like some of you. But I am now. Everything about this new story direction has been exciting and intriguing from the beginning. It’s obvious that it has created strong reader interest. Helped get Joe and Mike a Harvey award, too. Looking back, I agree with what you said yesterday about the stories from the original moon era being creative and fun and well written. The story with Notta and her husband and Piggy was one of the best ever! Exciting and creative. I can’t compute with the naysayers, that period of Dick Tracy was great. And everything about Mysta and the connections to space have been equally great. I know not everyone thinks so, but judging from the comments I read here I think Mysta has become a very popular character. And it’s not hard to see why. I agree with NightShade09 that I like Mysta more than the original Moon Maid because of all the changes happening to her and Staton drawing her so well. I would love to see her get her own spinoff strip so that Mike and Joe can pursue the space stories and her character development whole hog. After seeing these two latest strips I have no doubt I would love it and that many others here would too! Great job Team Tracy!
