    Hopefully not an ambush by person or persons unknown.

    A bank on fire.

    Blackjack is calling for aid.

    Tracy seeking him.

    It is that third unknown person I have difficulty with. So does Black Jack and Dick Tracy. We don’t know as yet who “he” is or his motives.

    Tracy’s hat on fire

    No oxygen does he have

    Highly risky move.

    I still say this is a trap—the Banker is Abner Kadaver, and he’s going to get revenge on both Blackjack AND Tracy…

    Stop me if you have heard this one before. IMO in the strip’s long history, Dick Tracy has never looked better!

    The bank is on fire

    Blackjack’s desire

    Rescue the Prez

    Despite what he sez

    Thru smoke and thru flame

    This is not a game

    A call for help

    Not merely a yelp

    Blackjack needs aid

    Tracy not afraid

    Keep calling I’ll find you

    But need I remind you

    You are still a felon

    So there is no tellin’

    If this good deed

    Will plant the seed

    Of redemption and gratitude

    Or simply of platitude

    The judge may go easy

    Cuz youre not TOO sleazy

    But you WILL do time

    For all of your crimes

    Enough of this whining

    I’m tired of rhyming

    Looks like Tracy will save Blackjack’s life just as BJ once saved his.

    I wanna see the bank prez go down……… and I wanna see BJ freed, but his 2 henchmen that got caught might not bode so well for BJ.

    Blackjack is a villian with a heart. Not really a villian at all, is he? More like Robin Hood. He breaks the law but lives by his own code – one that Dick Tracy can respect.

    Over the years, have any hints been given on what Blackjack’s real name is?

    Great, dynamic artwork today!

    It is presumably Blackjack who responds to Tracy and calls for help. My guess remains that Hickman is among those with him. Tracy braves the burning embers (on has landed on his fedora—probably yet another hat for the Collection) to help with rescuing them. I think Blackjack is trustworthy through their escape from the Fleischer Fire, but once outside, it’s to be Every Man for Himself, and could go in any of a host of directions….

    “Scotty, lock on all the people still in the building and beam them out.”

    “Captain, I cannae beam that many back at once with all the interference from the smoke and fire.”
