    Wake me when any member of the Dick Tracy cast appears in this strip again. Lately it should be called Orphan Annie.

    I’m liking this story a lot. Standish, a talented athlete who obviously comes with some baggage, reminds me of star basketball center Joel Frost, another talented transfer that Gil had to deal with in the 1960s when the great Jack Berrill was writing the strip.

    I agree with avenger09 about this strip having jumped the shark. Yes, Gould had his sci-fi moon period, but he never had anyone magically disappear. This seems more like an old Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie TV episode. I guess we’ll probably see characters from those series in Dick Tracy next.

    It’s more than just guests from other strips now, the Orphan Annie regulars have taken over this story. Tracy hasn’t been seen much lately and has had no impact on the story for even longer. This is the weakest ‚ÄúDick Tracy" story that Staton and Curtis have come up with by far. Could someone please notify me when it is over so I can skip it until then and then check back in to see if Staton and Curtis can get the strip back on track?

    So there were some inside jokes in this strip, big deal. There was absolutely no plot advancement, which made this strip basically a waste of time.

    I can’t understand how some of you are getting so excited about this totally un-Tracylike story. Again, I’ll repeat I am not all interested in it and may skip reading this strip for a couple of months, if not longer.

    So far this story does not appeal to me at all. If I want to see Tracy 70 years ago, I’ll read one of the Chester Gould’s Complete Dick Tracy volumes.

    The guy in P2 is the plate umpire and he’s holding his mask, not a turle, in his hand after the ball was hit foul.

    Who’s writing this story—Mike Curtis’ third-grade son? None of Angus’ actions the last two weeks have made any sense, and yes, Gould’s Dick Tracy would have fired to keep Angus from fleeing, especially after Angus had threatened Tracy’s daughter-in-law at gunpoint only minutes earlier.

    The Curtis/Staton team has done a great job bringing back former regulars who were rarely, if ever, seen during the previous regime. So I was wondering when they might resurrect Bonnie Braids. I’m glad to see here in this strip and hope she’ll be in several more and maybe even play a key role in some of the plots.
