I read Mrs Spencer as Mrs Fencer and thought she had survived that random tornado.
I’m concerned about Mole. He is either taking on the Plentys’ role as “model” citizens, or this is a good-bye to him.
I really like Tracy getting a chance to think about things rather than rush to a conclusion (or running away). With everyone working together, this feels like a Gould or Fletcher story.
A test to me is if I was a kid reading this, would it have pulled me in. With strips like today’s I would say yes.
That is one freaky tree.
..and by zombie magpies I meant a single person – I do NOT want to sound like there is more than one.
I thought this was an excellent plot building, 40s building lighting (hallway, tiffany-style lamps) atmospheric strip and still found myself checking the comments to see how the zombie magpies would complain about the slow pace. Bugger off zombies!!! It is sort of a pavlovian trigger now…new team does good, zombie magpies meltdown. I’ve been following the strip in the newspaper or whatever for nearly 40 years and this as fun as it gets…this takes me back to Art Deko, Johny Iceman, first Angeltop, Pucker Puss, The Brain, Ugly Christine…well, Flattop in DC comic….everything is lessened through over-comparison. The timeless style works so well, it seems redundant to compliment how well this is all working and as such I lurk.
I hope that the genre-changing moment of Moon Maid’s death due ultimately to Dick Tracy’s first adversary Big Boy remains as cannon as it can be. That said, I feel the current team has a creative spark that the post-Gould era has not seen and I’m willing to trust to a certain extent. Could I accept MM being alive after what, 34 years after one of the strip’s most definitive moments?
If I have to make that choice, I honestly trust the current team to lead the story in that direction. I eagerly await their work!

Sample Rex Velvet video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o25q6sSlvk
We have several costumed “super heroes” in Seattle, who have now spawned their own “super vlllians”, most notably Phoenix Jones and Rex Velvet. This rings fairly true to me, more so if Piranah has her own vodka line and well-produced youtube videos baiting The Knight.
It makes me wonder if the censors only allowed one brutal death per year but did not stipulate how many times the evil doer could be done in. I expect an legendary expiration sequence living up to either the moniker “Measles” or “so you thought you had headaches before”
The shading is terrific.
