    I hear Abner is really dead in bed.

    Ba dum bump

    If their goals were explosives, to what end were the explosives to be used?! Obviously for terrorism?
    For the time and money used, they could’ve just bought a nuke weapon on the black market.
    I would’ve preferred a time wormhole since Punjab cape does similar feats

    It’s The Asp & Punjab. One holds a sword.

    Xaxos?

  5. PatrickDC202 commented on Dick Tracy 21 days ago

    Or…the Buyer for Tracy was that mechanical villain who blew up the boat the Asp & Punjab were last seen on?

    The Blackhearts/Venus = bosses & buyers?

    That’s why Axel can’t have nice things.

    But, Tracy… as a seasoned detective, could likely spot it’s all a ruse in less than an hour, if not a day?

    I hate to be so critical, but it’s the writer in me poking for plot holes.
    They’re on an island near NYC? If so, trash would wash up on their shores. The heavy use of plastic in consumer products would wash up like tampon applicators (sorry, we call them “Beach Whistles” in New England, haha) and other items.

    OK. I worship this strip and all those who create it. But…

    Help me out here…

    I’m having trouble digesting this story. One word: “MOTIVE” — explain why Axel has gone through millions of dollars and painstaking logistics to re-create the 1940s on a leased island to use a new (?) technology of mind-control to work on some experiment?

    Should this play out as time-travel, the story works for me.

    However, unless I missed something, this story is just not working for me otherwise.

    To re-create an entire village, every single detail would have to work. For instance, at night, satellites can cross an evening sky.They were not launched until the 1960s. If Dick Tracy looked up, he’d see them at night. In addition, contrails from jets can drift. A “No Fly” limit over an island would only reach out so far.

    Moreover, every single detail of the 1940s would have to be exact, from food packaging, to the technology of nylons vs silk stockings, no books would have been ‘staged’ and printed after the 1940s.

    I’m kinda lost here. Granted, I’m enjoying the story, but it’s far too easy to figure out it’s all a ruse if you’re Dick Tracy, non?
