    Wildwood Cemetery?
    Hey, The Spirit lives underneath Wildwood!
    Sam and Lizz, phone Commissioner Dolan and ask whether his mysterious pal can nose around the place and find out what the deal is with this woman-who-would-be-Moon-Maid…

    That’s a haunting, beautiful image of Honey in today’s last panel. Unexpected and moving.

    The approximate passage of time in a comic strip (other than Gasoline Alley, of course) can be difficult to gauge. Whether or not the powerful lass in today’s strip actually turns out to be a resurrected Moon Maid, what’s the official word per Mike and Joe as to how much time has gone by in the feature (as far as the characters are concerned) since Moon Maid’s passing?

    Holy cow! Vista Bill and Vitamin together on the big screen. An auspicious development, indeed. Hope those old prints are in good shape!

    That was fast. The story is going great guns, but this is happening a little too quickly. Not to be over critical — and Sam’s seeking Pouch’s “assistance” was a nice touch — but I can’t but wish a bit more detailed detective work was on view here.

    jackdonhany is kidding, right?

    Remember when Tracy basically disintegrated Intro back in 1968?

    “Where’s the enemy?”

    “You’re BREATHING him!”

    As Chester Gould put it in a classically illustrated, symbolic panel (I wish I could find it), far more graphic than anything seen in the (outstanding) current battle, “Violence is golden, when it’s used to put down evil.”

    Ah, the ’60s…

    Seriously, this is wonderful stuff, and everyone involved with the strip is to be congratulated. I can’t recall who among the group recently said something to the effect, “The suspense is terrible… hope it lasts.” (An old Willy Wonkaism.) But I echo the sentiment. Reading Tracy is a genuine highlight of my day.

    Wow. Sam must be a real Max Steiner fan!

    What was the old Sam Catchem line (by Max Collins)? Something like, “Here’s the only person in the world who calls you ‘Richard’.”

    I would hate to see The Mole become villainous again; his rehabilitation story has been a very good thread in the history of the strip.

    Well, we hoped (many of us, anyhow) that the next visitor from the strip’s past would be Vitamin, but — Wow! Wotta entrance! Joe and Mike thoroughly understand and appreciate the sheer theatricality of the character. Chester Gould (as well as big Flintheart fan Max Allan Collins) would be impressed. Reading the Tracy strip is a highlight of my day.

    While “Abner Kadaver” certainly does look like an ex-TV horror movie host, he also somewhat resembles the old “Mr. Crime” character that narrated the stories in the old Gleason/Biro CRIME DOES NOT PAY comic-books. A subtle homage, perhaps?
