    Regarding yesterday, per the 12/26/48 strip, Sam was a busy man before joining Dick Tracy…he started out as a dentist (!), ran a deli in Philly, studied law, worked on the police force in Brooklyn, the detective bureau in Chicago, and was a special investigator in Boston for 2 years, before returning to his hometown from a request by Chief Patton.
    I know there’s been previous debates about Tracy’s locale, but according to this, in 1948, it was neither New York or Chicago.

    Sue Reel from the 1980 Art Dekko story.
    Sam – “That was the best looking mustached lady I ever saw.”
    Tracy – “That was no lady, that was Sue Reel.”

    I think in the “commemorate all or nothing” line of thinking nothing would be remembered.

    Tim, two years ago you had no problem with the strip – “nice touch team tracy.. almost as good as the 4th of july one! i dont mind this kind of interruption to a storyline”. Last year you had a problem, so eleven years is the limit I guess. Whatever.

    I suspect this tie-ins with Sparkle’s “strangely written” mystery letter (postage due, a fan commenting on her past childhood singing career.)

    The original Mr. Crime along with Big Boy (the man indirectly responsible for Moon Maid’s demise) are shown in the Crimestopper’s textbook.
