    Good morning™, California dreamers … err… west coast dreamers!

    I always did think Sawtooth lived in California when he said “west coast.”

    Did Sawtooth know that the hit on Tracy was botched?

    Guess Tracy’s “Run-In” with The Hornet was exactly that.

    No more, no less. ✨

    Then if that is so then the ending of the Green Hornet on Dick Trayc made zero sense.

    “And now for something completely different.”

    With the Green Hornet crossover wrapped up, it feels like this strip is the start of the next story. When that happens I do a list of every Tracy story on GoComics. Unfortunately, soon after I started doing this GC imposed a stupid, asinine character limit of only 2000 characters which includes every letter, space, punctuation, & html, which means I have to do this over several posts. I’ll do my initial introduction in this post and start the list in the next one, because otherwise, I can’t even get past the second year.

    My notes are fairly simple. Just my name for the story (usually the name of the main villain or villains, unless they just aren’t the emphasis) followed by the dates the story began and ended. If someone was the main villain for more than one story, I add a “II” and so on to emphasize this. If more than one villain from a past story are in the same story committing major crimes, I include them altogether. Finally, for the two cases of more than one villain with the same name (Chameleon, Mr. Crime) I add, “The Second” in front of their names.

    Minit Mysteries Note: at the request of people who wanted to see these listed here, I’ve decided to make a separate post for them to keep the listing of Mike Curtis stories in as few posts as possible.

    At the start of the GoComics archive, the writer was the late Mike Kilian. Personally, I like his work on Tracy and think he’s very underrated. At the very least, he knew how to tell a story in the daily strip format where every day, something happens that moves the story along, a quality his successor sorely lacked. I recommend anyone here who hasn’t read these stories to check them out.

    TBC cuz GC decided to suck now

    Good morning™, West Coast Warriors !

    Sawtooth has to be the best [high priced] gun for hire guy ever to live the way he does.

    If Sawtooth is now going to fight with the Green Hornet, then I’m a happy camper, but if the Green Hornet episode is over, then I’ll just stop reading Dick Tracy altogether. At least I have the memories of how it was with the master, Chester Gould, because I’m 74 years old.

    Is that pronounced: “Eyegore?”

    Here’s the link to that episode of “General Hospital” I’d mentioned awhile back: Fast forward to 14:25 for the Dick Tracy inspired song and dance number …

    I still want to know what happened to the Moon Governor, Ugly Crystal and the others.

    Sprocket Nitrate (AKA “Susan”) was last seen heading for California. I wonder if she’ll make an appearance in this story arc.

    CChester Gould, to my knowledge, NEVER did a log term crossover, and I’m 79. Sawtooth is a good character, hope the story is as good

    I’m guessing that this is not taking place in one of the counties looking to secede from the rest of California…

    during Locher’s final days we complained about long, drawn out stories that constantly repeated panels and went nowhere.

    Actually, I never complained about the Locher era.
