    Good morning™, goofy crossover characters !

    Does this mean the statue is in the park or just a meeting place ?

    Good morning™, oldtimers!

    Even the guest writers and artists are getting into crossovers! Smokey Stover was very popular in its day. It ran from 1935 until 1972:

    Did Smokey escape from the “Old Comics home?”

    This beats all.

    If ever a character needed to be drawn “in character,” it has to be Smokey Stover, complete with his two-wheeler car.

    Maybe having Smokey is the reason they went with this unsettling art.

    But having Stover means they didn’t go weird enough!

    Where is Spooky the cat? She looked awfully like Desdemona Cicero’s pet!

    Reminds me of “The Thomas Crown Affair” with Pierce Brosnan. When it was said that the stolen painting would return to its proper place, I immediately understood the twist. Now, I know that the movie was a remake, and I don’t remember having seen the original. Still, maybe I had seen it some time, and subconsciously remembered.

    Smokey’s car was the Foomobile" with 2 wheels, I remember a man made a real one with 2 wheels!

    There should be a “Notary Sojac” somewhere, to make it complete.

    SMOKEY: Thanks for getting my hat back from the Hat Bandit, Tracy. DT: Yeah. Sorry the brim got bent. So, are your guys ready for the annual Policemen versus the Firemen Softball and Hot Dog Eating contest?

    SMOKEY: We will be in a minute. Most of the team is putting out the grill fire right now. Do we have to play in our fire gear again this year? It’s so heavy and hot. I think it’s the main cause of our annual defeat.

    DT: Well, you wanna be ready in case there’s a fire, don’t ya? Besides, my team has to wear their badges and they’re kind of heavy. Also, you guys always win the Hot Dog Eating Contest. Fairs fair!

    When did ‘Minit Mysteries’ turn into “The cartoonist takes a two week vacation?”

    I don’t understand – is Sam wearing white pants with his shirt again today? That is so weird. What cop does that?

    Well hopefully tomorrow we can say “Scram, Gravy ain’t Wavy” Gould rolls over once again. Here’s a thought boys; if you don’t want to continue a real Dick Tracy strip, why not find someone else to do it, hopefully someone who can draw.

    Great to see a classic comic character featured. I recently bought a Smokey Stover comic book.

    I have often said on this board that crossovers diminish both Tracy and the crossover character. This instance proves my point. Smokey had to be toned down and made more realistic and Tracy had to be cartoonized. Both characters shadows of themselves. It is like turning on your favorite TV show and finding all of the roles are now played by other actors who are all playing the roles with different interpretations than we have ever had before. Who had the idea that the strip would be better if it changed everything and dispensed with all of the things that made the strip famous in the first place?

    Minit Mysteries and crossover rarely work and one on top of the other is a double disaster.

    What has happened to the drawing/look of the strip? It just looks so artificial and Tracy just is not drawn as well as he was about 3 weeks ago. The look of the strip has changed and I don’t know why.

    Ye gads! A crossover within a Minit Mystery! I remember Smokey Stover, but it was one of my least favorite Sunday color comics—too screwball for my taste, even as a callow youth. And, besides, this Smokey does not look much like that Smokey. But no doubt a little firefighter heavy-handedness will bring Aurora Rising to light again, unfortunately….
