    Happy father day to all dads and haha grandads here! You gotta be one or at least be that age to like Orphan Annie, I think! I never read it, and I always asked myself, why all the characters lack pupils?

    Okay, this is the epitome! As I was growing up, everyone was always speculating about a Justice League/Avengers match-up or even a Superman/Spider-Man (and, yes, they all did eventually happen). But, Team Tracy is constantly making these sorts of dreams come true in their own way. Gasoline Alley’s Walt Wallet, all the Brenda Starr and Terry & the Pirates characters, Batman-ish…all great…But, THIS is the best!

    Wow. When Team Tracy began doing guest appearances from other strips, I’d hoped we’d have one featuring characters from Annie, but this is better than I’d hoped, moving the Moon Maid story along, and giving us a hint of Annie action!I’d sure love to read a story of Annie’s rescue, with Tracy’s help. Or would it be with Moon Maid’s help? Annie has had her share of supernatural and science fiction stories, so an alien wouldn’t be too far a stretch (remember Mr. Am?)Just don’t forget to include Amelia Santiago!-————————And this is on the same day the Phantom continues a cross-over story featuring Mandrake the Magician! I haven’t had this much fun reading the comics since I was a kid!

    Maybe Annie was abducted by Rex Morgan, M.D. and has to be rescued by Dick Tracy, Tarzan – and Snuffy Smith! Hey, it all happened in Mad’s Comic Opera by Frank Jacobs and Wally Wood in Mad Magazine #56.http://dr-hermes.livejournal.com/125847.html

    So, the 64 dollar question… Who is Moon Maid? She rather clearly believes she’s Moon Maid. Her keepers think she is or seem to. So, how’d she get the powers if she’s not the real MM. And… if she IS the real thing, how’d she survive that car bomb?

    Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks reappears on Father’s Day! And the spelling of Lazarus is tacitly corrected. While the Asp and Punjab help Warbucks prepare for his expedition to find the missing Annie, his quick response trimming Dr. Sail will help Tracy deal with the mysterious reappearance of a dead Moon Maid. What a fine Sunday serving this is!

    I don’t know how I could enjoy a story more than I’m enjoying this one. Every day we get new revelations, a deepening mystery, terrific art, and the glorious Mysta at the center of it all. Now we’re treated to Daddy Warbucks, Asp and Punjab?? OH!! This is impossibly good stuff. Thank you Team Tracy for this delicious tale. It’s been a long time since I was so absorbed with a daily comic strip. I love every panel and can’t wait for the next day. Sorry to gush but I’m just being honest.

    I would say that an Annie/DT crossover would look funny with half the people having no pupils in their eyes. But since everybody in DT squints all the time, who would notice…LOL

    Annie is about to join Dick Tracy in a crossover arc? Even with the strip ceased in 2010 and recently there’s an Annie Broadway revival?

    Maybe in the future these crossovers could happen:Dick Tracy meets Brenda StarrDick Tracy meets Moon MullinsDick Tracy meets Winnie WinkleDick Tracy meets Friday FosterDick Tracy meets Archie (Remember Dick Tracy appeared in Filmation’s Archie TV Funnies in the 1970’s?)Dick Tracy meets Walt Wallet from Gasoline Alley

    If Team Tracy see’s the excitement these crossover stories are bringing, they just might give us more. But before DICK TRACY finds Annie, he needs to find Sparkle. lol (once he learns she is missing).

    With all the Annie and Moon Maid comments, I almsot forgot to mention that I enjoyed today’s Crimestoppers about the US Marshals. I’d no idea the agency was that old.I do know one strange thing about the Marshals – they have jurisdiction in Antarctica!

    Today’s strip and all the discussion about old titles makes me nostalgic for the days when the “funny papers” had Crime strips, Adventure strips, Soap Operas, Funny Animals, Teen-aged strips, etc. It was a real variety and every reader could find something that appealed to him personally. Current comics seem to be mostly of the “gag-a-day” variety.

    Talk about a great way to settle some unfinished business. It was so unsatisfying the way Annie just ended, with her lost. What a great idea, thanks! I hope you’re not just teasing us and we’ll see Annie home where she belongs! The Dick Tracy team is easily the best at what they do!

    Oliver Warbucks refers to his lead scientist, Dr. Eon – if he means Eli Eon, he was killed by an angry mob way back in one of the very early stories. Perhaps this is a relative?

    Just a few points to remember regarding all the cross-over suggestions..First, the cross-overs that have occurred in TRACY so far all involved characters who are owned by Tribune Media Services, which means no copyright issues are involved..Some of the suggestions made here, however, have involved characters who are owned by King Features, United Features, Newspaper Enterprises Assn., etc. Those cross-overs are just not happening without a lot more wangling about copyright arrangements and money changing hands then I suspect TMS is willing to do..Second, as for the currently running Mandrake/Phantom crossover being the first of its kind, I think if you research it, you’ll find that both characters were in attendance at each others’ weddings..Finally, given that it involves a character who was created specifically to compete with Tracy, and whose creator was one of the greatest mystery novelists in the history of crime fiction, I’m surprised that no one’s mentioned that Phil Corrigan, SECRET AGENT X-9, is guest-starring in the current FLASH GORDON storyline.

    Happy Father’s Day to all it applies and especially the beloved Daddy of this board, Vista Bill.

    WOW – what a Sunday strip! A major plot element and a nod towards the final panel of the amazingly well done Annie reboot.

    From what I understand at the end, Annie was only running in 20 papers, thus the plug was pulled. Perhaps Annie will “chase the ’lectrons too and fro-o-o” once again. The first time on radio waves and this time…on radio waves. Unless Wi-Fi ain’t radio.

    It’s all magic to me.

    I knew it. Both Docs are fakes. “Mysta” has been plastic surgeried , mind-altered, and technologically enhanced. She’s got an altered pocket-zapper hidden on, or in, her. Or not.

    As far as Annie being revived, I think that today is the end of the crossover, but it was nice to see it.

    I’ve missed most of the DT strips over the last year or so, but this is the first time I’ve seen mention of the full name “Dr. S. Tim Sail” which sounds a bit like “stem cell” to me? Is that the idea of it?

    As for MM, I still have no idea who she is or what will happen to her or when but it looks like the current caper is finally getting into high gear. It’s been fascinating up till now, despite the lack of Dick Tracy for some time and the lack of any clear crime, too. (Although I suppose that MM technically assaulted Sparkle.)
