I had no idea somebody was a Buckaroo Banzai fan!
OK, so this must be setting us up for another thread in the story, right?
Good morning all..
I hope the show is not at the science museum!
Well, they did mention Emilio Lizardo a while back…

Enjoying the heck outta this! I started back here on gocomics as far as their archives go (2001). I wish there was a place that had reprints of the old stuff from the 60s when I was a kid.^Have you seen this site?I Love Comix – Dick Tracy
… maybe the Moon People are Red Lectroids. Will this story take us to Yoyodyne Industries?
Oh look, it’s Honeymoon Tracy, the human/alien hybrid.
Yes, that’s the second Buckaroo Banzai reference recently. I’m not sure whether it might be part of a coming story or just a passing mention, but I’m starting to think that it actually could be connected to an upcoming story.
Tracy may for now be bemused by his ‘tween-aged granddaughter’s musical preferences, but he won’t be smiling when something goes terribly wrong at the theatre—it’s traditional in the Tracyverse, don’t you know? Or will it be at the TV studio? So many venues, so many assassination plots….
The Hong Kong Cavs! Me so happy!! Hoping it is post 8th. dimension events.
<< Has no idea what Buckaroo Bonzai is…. doesn’t want to know
Buckaroo Bonsai is a dwarf tree from the 8th dimension.
Wikipedia: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (an action-adventure/science-fiction movie from 1984)
Is it just me, or does Tracy look hung over in that last panel?
True story: Mike met his wife, Carole, because they’re both Buckaroo fans and she was wearing a Hong Kong Cavaliers jacket when Mike first saw her… :D
Another place to look through the old DT strips is newspapers.yahoo.com. It is archive of dozens of no longer in printer newspapers. There are several that have the DT strips. New and Courrier, Lawrence World Journal, Calgary Herald, Herald Journal, and others. Takes a little work as you have to read the strips one day at a time. But you can enjoy the Alley Opps, Gasoline Alley, Orphan Anne and others at the same time.
IMHO, this is the most excitement one’s heart can take. The throb of every heartbeat goes beyond mortal expectation. I cannot experience the sensation without saying it is rooted in genius.
Also the movie has one of the best closing credits sequences ever.
If anyone else knew as little as I did about the Hong Cong Cavalier, here is a link:
Well, I sure hope we see some scenes from the concert. As we know from Perfect Tommy, “Pictures don’t lie.”
Has anyone else noticed that the coloring on the dailies has been unusually good the past few days?
The comments seem to have gotten stuck in a loop.
cannot help but to love that smile in panel 3
and this waste of an “entry” was needed for what reason exactly? this couldnt have been handled in a one panel phone call or even a wrist wizard connection between tracy and honeymoon? did they REALLY need to interrupt a storyline for this little interlude?
oh wait, this is DICK TRACY.. the strip that bounces so much between storylines you feel like youre trapped inside a gigantic pinball machine.. and youre the little silver ball!
makes sense now, my bad
Laugh now monkey boys!
Right about now, we need a couple of “oh-oh” chords on Rosa Rio’s old Hammond organ ! (You’ve got to be 70+ to ‘get’ that.)
So the TV show is on Sunday? It’s a good thing the Sunday strips have extra panels. I’m expecting a lot of action and possibly new plot twists.
" OOHHHHH!!! Is today’s strip the calm before the storm? “Watch out Dick!! There are enemies plotting to hurt you. Don’t relax and stay alert!!!!! OOHHH this is so exciting*!!!!! “*-————————————————————————————Really sympathize with you, having daily, to experience the realities of a quality comic strip (particularly, with Joe Staton’s Art) and reading a board cluttered with a multitude of congratulatory posts ! With you, could it be on going Contempt ? If so, I imagine (painful?) SHIVERS - run up and down, your emotional spine ? You’ve even used the word *”Wow" !*
Actually, the real WOW is, that these Guys won a Harvey Award !. First meaningful achievement for Dick Tracy work since Gould’s Reuben Award back in 1977 !
While you come again, with comments, seemingly dripping with insincere platitudes and (today) illustrating them, with first a *’*Bleeding Heart*’*, and then a flow of Crocodile Tears ?
Not a nice scene for you or the rest ! Can’t be easy SDM, while you’re likely sitting there, pen behind your ear, while having to hold a strip, FROZEN like a Pruneface Ice Lolly – - in one of Freezedrai’s – - – Cryonics Machines ! (?)
Bad Karma !
Buckaroo Banzai in da house!!
Buckaroo Banzai! All right Honeymoon!
“The man drove through solid matter! Who knows what it’s done to his brain?”
Stilldamatt, tell Nurse Tracy to cut back on the quays about 2000 mg/day and let’s see if we can get you back to normal. Maybe we can even see some more of the kid and the stupid cat. Whacha say? Did they ever get a replacement watch? When they do, don’t shake it so much, or….. maybe take it off.
The Blue Blaze Irregulars assemble.
Hong Kong Cavaliers?!?!?! That got my attention!!!
Honeymoon forgot to recommend Tracy remember to wear his bulletproof vest.
