That’s why Sam was not seen at the Siam, he was out shopping for a yellow mask. 8D
Dick Tracy returns.
A little gift is given.
Yes, so amusing.
Dick’s 2nd panel face looks different than its usual. Oh ! that’s right ! different artist !
Good morning squad room inhabitants and the ever ill-ustrious Vista Bill and the caped Comet crusader !
What did everyone chip in, 25 cents?
Lizz looks fat and deformed!
Now Dick and the Spirit can team up and become the second Dynamic Duo!
The Green Hornet comes to town tracking down a dangerous criminal. One that starts moving out or killing the local riff-raff then….Just my idea, chipping in…
Trying to remember if the original design for “The Crimson Avenger” was a red hat, coat, and mask.
With the mask, he can at least be Dick Tracy IN SPIRIT! ;-D
Good morning fellow DT fans!
Let the next villain emerge…
It feels odd, having the gang back together again after so much team-up action.
Nice touch with the “yellow mask” sign. At least the colourist can’t get it wrong.
Now he can be, the Yellow Spirit… Or perhaps, The Yellow Hornet..!
Blue team, yellow team; if as suggested above the Green Hornet shows up, green team. This is getting to be a very colorful comic strip!
And, more importantly, Tracy just got his “’costume” for the cosplay convention, at which he/we will meet Svengoolie, who often is a Celebrity Guest at such affairs, at least in this area of the country….
It’s nice to see things back to normal, for the MCU, and the comment board here, where Avenger is throwing out the troll seed, and will no doubt, attract a nice flock.
I like the yellow mask gag, and Shelley’s art.
TSULL2121 A few days ago, you said that a big part of your objection to Mysta was in the claim that the DNA used to create her came from the wreckage of the car bomb that killed Moon Maid. I reread that part of the story, and realized you were right.
Considering it was said by Dr. Sale, who was claiming he cloned Moon Maid and was later proven to be a liar, con man, and thief, he was undoubtedly lying about the source of the DNA, too. He was also fronting for Mr. Bribery, and with his resources, stealing one (or just part) of a sample would have been possible.
Where’d it come from? Considering that Moon Maid was the first extra-terrestrial to come out in the Tracyverse, I’m sure she donated blood samples for scientific research. And while she married Junior on the moon, she may have had to give a blood sample back in Tracyville, (and even undergo a civil ceremony) to make the marriage legally binding on earth.
Samples can be kept for a long time. Tissue samples taken in 1910 were used in 2007 to try to determine the identity of remains found in the basement of Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen in London. Scientific testimony in his trial identified them as coming from Crippen’s wife, and he was convicted of her murder and hung. Ten years ago, some of the tissue was tested for a DNA connection to Crippen’s wife, and the researchers found it not only wasn’t her DNA, but that the remains weren’t from a woman.
“Tie a yellow mask around the ol’ oak tree…”
Thanks for letting us know what yellow looks like .
It could have been worse, Liz could have given Dick yellow leotards and a yellow cape!
SIGH, Shelley Shelley Shelley, Joe would NEVER forget to draw Hippo Lizz’s earring in panel two. NEVER!!!
Well, maybe he would.
Actually, he already does!!
In a way, I don’t know why Sam says that Tracys is back because he didn’t really go anywhere. He had a dinner party at home one day and when Bonnie went looking for him at HQ, she was told he wasn’t in yet that day. Thee wasn’t really any indication that he was “away.”
Those of you who mentioned that the reason for the “Yellow Mask” arrow box is because the original art is B&W, and Team Tracy wanted all their readers to get the joke, are probably right. But don’t forget, in addition to that, there is a strong tradition in Tracy, started by Chester Gould, to label things in the strip. MAD magazine had fun with that, labeling dozens of items in every panel, in their parodies.
Glad that was labeled “Yellow Mask”. I thought that it was the world’s tiniest, kinkiest bra.

I still wish that P’Gell had shown up as a bidder. P’Gell and the Dragon Lady….that might have been an interestering combination. Also the "Yellow Mask was an early villain in the Superman Radio series. He had ordered the Wolf to destroy the Silver Clipper of the Western Railroad company and because, Clark Kent was involved in preventing that, tried to destroy the Daily Planet building.
most excellent….but will we see him in it? maybe for Halloween?
I guess Tracy is now all set to cosplay as the Spirit in the upcoming storyline,.
This is the fifth day in a row to elicit over 100 comments.
Make of that as you will.
I see my post from this morning got deleted by someone. Lesson learned: if you do not like teeney-bopper comics, keep it to yourself.
