Good morning™, treasure hunters!
It looks like all that digging through dusty old files has paid off for Lafayette. Soon, Peter will be able to pay his own bills, instead of waiting 90 days for Vortex to issue a cheque.
I thought that Lafayette is working on behalf of the MCU. It seems like he is freelancing and is not a part nor is he aware of New Broom
I still don’t really know what’s going on here. I don’t think this plot was very well thought out.
Good morning™, treasure finders !
P. 3 certainly gives the impression he is doing something police or Tracy would not approve of.
This story just isn’t doing much for me. Dick Miller, Pitchblende, Piotr Vorkov? My eyes are glazing over. Bring on Haf and Haf!
my eyes glazed over a long time ago
Lafayette, Lafayette, what you gonna do when Dick Tracy comes for you?
Let’s see what transpires, I believe the story is close to an ending.
Now, that’s timing!
This moron isnt long for the world of Tracy. His penchant for talking out loud is (hopefully) gonna get him killed.. sooner rather than later
A curiousity to ponder.. WHY In God’s Name would Polar keep a file like that to begin with?!?!?
Either he is the stupidest criminal in the world or nobody ever looked at the files.. im going wiht the second since Devil mentioned to Polar that Laffy-Pants reorganized their files and judging by all the dust on the files it looks like nobody has checked them in a while.
Still, Polar should have thought ahead and realized that he has a file that says Petey Boy is in charge of the money and not him
Truth be told, I think that Lafayette start this little sting of his because Vortex went after his daughter and did not have time to tell Tracey. However zgood news for Pitchblade none the less.
Lafayette sure talks to himself a lot.
I’m beginning to think Joe & Mike are just engaging in an exercise to see how bad a story they can get away with telling.
To the guy who “doesn’t know what’s going on here” , don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, neither do the artists. Let’s throw some stuff on the wall and see what sticks I think it’s called.
These 3 panels really push the plot (such as it is) along rapidly. The key document is found; Austin’s quick perusal shows that it overrides whatever Volkov’s scheme is (Panel 2); and then the sirens signal the impending arrival of the New Broom squad to clean up the story (IMO Austin was unaware of the operation; I think he has no Wrist Wizard and was not informed otherwise, either). All that remains is for Piotr Volkov (sometimes rendered “Vorkov”) to come to his fated Bad End and for Devila to be either arrested (likely), slain (unlikely), or revealed as collaborating with cops (also unlikely, though not impossible)….
