Mike Curtis’s announcement on Facebook this morning:
The Official announcement and a piece of news.
In an unusual adventure involving two syndicates, Dick Tracy will be hosting the famous detective FEARLESS FOSDICK just before July 4 this year.
In the 1940’s Al Capp, writer and artist of L’IL ABNER came up with the idea that Abner would be a fan of the incredible comic strip detective FEARLESS FOSDICK, a spoof of Chester Gould’s DICK TRACY. Originally sporting a yellow fedora, Fosdick had ridiculous adventures involving such fiends as the Chippendale Chair , Anyface, and appeared in ads for Wildroot Crème Oil and a early TV puppet show.
Denis Kitchen, publisher and author, was instrumental in bringing the two parties together. The adventure also involves a villain from the L’IL ABNER comic strip and is scheduled to run Sunday July 26 through Sunday July 3.
