Good morning™, smoke-blowers!
Shaky is definitely bluffing, but it would be good to have clear evidence of that.
Shouldn’t she tell her husband? ✨
Good morning™, astute instigator investigators !
Tessie Takes Charge ! Johnny’s on the spot !
Should be interesting to learn what Johnny uncovers – we’ll learn something more about Shaky, which is always an adventure…
so everyone except shaky see’s how dumb his plan is
Tess should tell the DA about Shaky’s claim. She has nothing to be afraid of, and it would take way Shaky’s only blackmail material.
THUMP! The set-man for Riffin Without A Script passes out from yesterday’s overdose of cigar smoke
1-ROCK: What’s that diploma on the wall for and from what school and is it accredited or is it Canadian? BLONDIE: SHADDAP ALREADY! I gotta headache…
2-…but the play must go on so if you must know, it’s not a diploma. It’s a license.
3-ROCK: Like, to kill? Cool!
BLONDIE: I was gonna say “to drive a car” but let’s go with your idea. That way I can knock off any character that gets on my nerves.
ROCK: I wish I’d had one of those in Pillow Talk Doris Day was always making unwanted advances. I mean, unwanted because I was faithfully married at the time. I think.
BLONDIE: I bet that marriage was as chaste as Doris pretended to be.
ROCK: Yeah, she ‘chased but never ‘caught’. HA!
BLONDIE: Don’t make me use my license to kill…
Charlie Wise, who is writing and drawing the next Minit Mystery asked me to post this announcement by Mike from the Dick Tracy Facebook group.
Per Mike Curtis: NEW MINIT MYSTERY COMING- WITH A DIFFERENCE We’ve had Minit Mysteries before, with guest art and/or guest writers. What makes this one different? This adventure, focusing on Moon Maid, is both written AND drawn by the same creative talent- CHARLIE WISE. Charlie currently does a webcomic entitled GROOVY, KINDA, and is also known for his graphic novel BLUE MOON- LYSSA AND THE PIRATES. Charlie also did two issues of UTOPIA UNLIMITED for Palliard Press starring the BLUE MOON characters.
GROOVY, KINDA focuses on the lives and loves of the oddball denizens of Innesmount, Jefferson, including Edison Lighthouse, currently featured in DICK TRACY. You can read GROOVY, KINDA at www.groovykinda.org , and on tapas at https://tapas.io/series/534 . Charlie’s MINIT MYSTERY begins Sunday April 12 and runs for 15 days.
Johnny is the MAN!! He’ll dig up something on Shaky.
Neil? There? In panel one, those dark areas? THOSE are shadows. They don’t make fancy patterns on the covers of books. They just obscure vision.
And in panel three? On his face, above his lip, under his nose? That’s not a shadow either. ;)
Adonis hasn’t played an important part in a story for so long that he’s eligible for unemployment insurance.Even if it slows up the story,the point is to have him earn his keep.As a real old fan,it’s ironic that Tess spent the first 15 years or so scared to death of the dangerous life Dick led and was always t rying to get him to quit.Now she’s part of that dangerous life.
A Background check on Shaky? OMG, hasn’t Tess been in this srkip since the 30s, she should know all about Shaky and/or any offspring. Wow, that pending Minit Mystery really looks like a good time to take an early summer vacation. Can you say FUBARRED Kids?
The zoo has closed for the season and Pouch is freezing to death out there.
Nothing wrong with some in-house sleuthing. And Tess is plainly right to be suspicious of the Shaky-McQueen axis.
But, still, Tess really should get Tracy and his team involved! That leaves her more in the clear from the start and adds substantilly more resources to the investigation than the Tracy Agency can muster on its own….
Tess Trueheart and Johnny Fakehair.
