    I think the reason for the somewhat cartoony drawings thisc week is specifically because we are in a dream sequence, and the art is deliberately imitating Al Capp’s style.

    I agree with you that Sundays have generally been choppy looking compared to the smooth lines of the dailies. The word is that Joe does his own inking on Sundays, and Shelley inks during the week.

    I read somewhere that if a person tries talking in a dream, that person usually wakes up immediately.

    I’m not sure that’s true. I’ve had dreams where I’m arguing with someone. And spouses report that their partners talk in their sleep, which is usually related to what’s going on in their dreams at the time.

    Hi, Ronnie! Great to hear from you. Thanks for checking in. We recently finished up our VBS program – we had 80 kids of all ages. The adults were all very tired by the end of the week!

    Blackjack is an killer but also a big Tracy fan

    Unless I am remembering wrong, I thought Blackjack made it a point never to physically harm his robbery victims.

    Of course, if people were absolutely sure he was not going to harm them, there would be no point in giving in to his demands, so that may be why he isn’t too successful.

    Once again, I ask that in the future please be a little more conscientious in the selection of your subject matter.

    And once again, I call your attention to the fact that the very article you linked us to also says that the Pinkertons captured serial killers, stopped assassination attempts and helped capture train robbers and other thieves. As with most things in this world, they were not entirely good, but neither were they entirely bad. Today’s piece seems to be focusing on introducing modern fingerprint science to the NYPD, which obviously is not a bad thing.

    So, Tracy’s Daily Newspaper has not one, but two parody comic strips kidding Tracy about himself: “Fearless Fosdick” and “J. Straightedge Trustworthy”, which is also a parody of “Fearless” – the mind boggles!

    I anticipate someone saying “It’s only a dream”, but the first panel shows the real Tracy, asleep with his newspaper in his hand – so I’m taking it to mean the first panel is still the strip’s reality. It was reading the “Fearless” strip while tired that sent Tracy off into this dream.

    Go Comics colors have been quite good for a long while now. But, I wonder why the colorist went to the extra work of changing Tracy’s coat from the standard bright yellow in panel one, to the orange-yellow in panel two.(It’s almost PMS 116)

    Neil Wick – Please take care of yourself! I’m praying that you heal quickly!

    Other Tracy “vacations” from Gould’s day that were not as relaxing as hoped for:

    On the lake, where Tonsils was laying in wait to shoot Tracy, and Bonny and Sparkle were missing for several weeks.

    In the North Woods, where Bonny ended up in the hands of Crewy Lou.

    Tracy and Sam were both ready to start out on a vacation when two kids found a skeleton in the cement of a bridge – leading to the Oodles story.

    Just before leaving, a torrential rain caused massive flooding and all hopes of traveling were gone. After finding Sparkle and Little Wingy, who were lost in the flood, Tracy had to deal with Rughead.

    There were a couple of times that a vacation actually was a vacation, but more often Tracy has trouble getting out of town!

    Many here were wondering if the police really had any valid charges they could bring against Notta, and if they would stick. It appears the Chief is all set to move on. Is Notta in jail – will she stay there?

    That is the back of the ambulance taking Purdy Fallar to a facility where he will be safe from Mr. Bribery.

    Oh, yes. I see it now. Thank you.
