Hopefully not an ambush by person or persons unknown.
Good morning guys!
Any sign of fire trucks?
A bank on fire.
Blackjack is calling for aid.
Tracy seeking him.
BTW, I love the artwork today!
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.
That is one great first panel!
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!
Tremendous art yet again. More of the good stuff from Team Tracy.
“And now, here’s a classic from the BMBG music archives!”
As always to serve and protect!
The bank is on fire
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.
Nicely drawn panels today… Is it Joe Staton’s …?? Nice job!!
Excellently drawn, fine writing. I do nominate this for your best strip this year, Team Tracy.

Our little timmy is all grown up, rhyming all by his widdle self! “We’re all very proud of you little timmy!”
Where is Dick Tracy’s classic … snub nose .38 … Joe???
Does anyone have a link to today’s art in B&W?
Love how he puts the gun away when he realizes Blackjack’s new motives……
Seems like a lot of unfinished stuff lying around that I don’t know when or if we’re gonna get an answer to…..like the moon maid signals…..noises BO heard…….was Perenelle really from 1300’s……what happened to Abner……and, where’s PONYTAIL, lol?
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….
ooo…at 100 for the first time since Sunday!
“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.”
