    She’s not taking advantage of Gunther by letting him do all the homework. On 5/9 Gunther offered to do all the field notes for her, she refused to let him do that because, “I may be selfish, but I’m not that selfish,” and insisted they would work on it together. Today, that’s exactly what they’re about to start doing: doing the field notes together, as agreed upon.

    It hasn’t really been confirmed yet. Just that one fed cop was found. He could mean, “We hope there’s a chance for the other two like the cop we found by accident and saved” or, “We hope there’s a chance for the other two unlike the cop we found by accident who was already dead.

  7. boboscar commented on Dick Tracy about 1 month ago

    So does that mean Choo-Choo Charlie is in league with BO Plenty? Or perhaps with BO’s shady brother, Goodin Plenty?

  8. boboscar commented on Dick Tracy about 1 month ago

    I just want to say thank you to Sydney E. Phillips for providing the strips from Piggy Bank’s last story.

    However, I think there might be need for a minor correction (or maybe not). I read Kilian’s 90s run years ago, and don’t have easy access to it now, but if I recall correctly, Piggy’s wife Greedelia wasn’t in Piggy’s first story, but didn’t debut until his second story. Thus, she wouldn’t have one more story than Piggy with her cameo in France, but the same number, six.

  9. boboscar commented on Dick Tracy about 1 month ago

    Thanks for your reply, yesterday. I like your theory, too. Either of us or neither of us is right. Neither is most likely, but it’s still fun to speculate. ;)

  10. boboscar commented on Dick Tracy about 1 month ago

    First off, thanks to Neil Wick, Willy007, and SYDNEY PHILLIPS for your kind comments on my Piggy Bank theory.

    However, I must respectfully disagree with you, Syd, that Lt. Teevo qualifies as a character from that era. To my mind, the Kilian-Locher era and the Locher-solo era are very different and distinct from each other. Teevo is from the Locher-solo era, Locher’s own creation that Kilian had nothing to do with.

    This matters to me because I enjoy Kilian’s run very much, and IMHO he was a vastly superior writer to Locher. Even if some among you dislike Kilian’s stories, at least he knew how to tell them in the format of a daily strip without the endless, mind-numbing repetition that Locher’s writing became so infamous for after Kilian died. Leaving any opinions aside, there wasn’t much overlap between the two writers. Aside from the regular cast and the Plentys (which they share with all previous and succeeding Tracy writers), the only continuities by Kilian that Locher ever referred to were finishing up the second Oily case after Kilian died, and bringing back a now reformed Dab Stract.

    So far, there hasn’t been much reference to Kilian’s run under Curtis and Staton. But if Piggy Bank is Mr. Bigg, the hidden big bad of much of the major criminal activities of the past two years, that would be awesome.

    To anyone curious who has access to newspaper archives to papers that carried Tracy during this period, here’s a list of when Piggy Bank (full name: Piggoty E. Bank, sometimes called Pig E. Bank, but by the end, was exclusively called Piggy Bank) went up against Tracy, grouped by date.
