    First thing I thought of as well. Disappointed that in pursuit of a laugh, a visual artist like Mr. Pastis unfortunately perpetuated the misconception that the writers of comics were the sole creators of their characters. Jack Kirby in particular was historically neglected in his mammoth role in creating the overall comics universe until relatively recently. But Stan still gets the lions share of pop-culture recognition as the “creator”…

    Dr. Watson makes several references to a similar cane, Holmes’ “alpine stock”, in The Adventure of the Final Problem. In the accompanying original illustrations it is depicted as having a curved dog’s-head handle.

    If it works for the Colbert Nation, why not for our very own League of Crimestoppers?

    @AnyFace, @22ph
    With the string of Harvey Awards that Joe, Mike & the crew have racked up, I think just about any character they want to invite in for a crossover or cameo is fair game. Even the big kahuna that is King Features Syndicate would jump across the table to pick up their call hoping for a “Tracy bump” in readers here checking out The Phantom if they don’t do so already. I know I will, so it’s already working…

    I remember as a kid watching Red Buttons doing his “…never got a dinner” routines on the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. Too young to get many of the jokes but knew I was seeing a master at work judging by the ROTFL reactions from fellow comedic giants like Berle, Ceasar, Rickles, etc. Thankfully they are now well represented on youtube for all to see. Check them out again or for the first time, they’re worth it.

    Well color me disappointed that today’s strip isn’t in b&w. After getting a taste, color on this story arc just doesn’t seem right. Remember when Ted Turner colorized “Casablanca”? That was Wrong with a capital “W”, while this just seems like a cool artistic opportunity missed.

    Thanks for posting this for comparison. Now I’m 100% sure that this storyline looks better in b&w. It also helps separate it from the continuity of the color strips. I hop gocomics continues running them this way for the duration of this story arc.

    Hooray — still b&w!! Could it be that we don’t need a petition? Maybe multiple Harvey Awards have given Mike & Joe enough clout to exert complete creative control over how the strip is presented? It’s Tracy Noir…

    Can we start a petition to have ALL the daily strips in glorious b&w?! The 2 times the strip has recently been mistakenly printed sans color proves that they look much better for it. The inking is suberb!!

    Actually that’s a pretty accurate drawing of a Desert Eagle .50 caliber handgun.
