    Good morning™, all!

    The sign painter didn’t know the difference between “Chick Tracy and Miss De-lite” and “Dick Tracy and Miss De-lite.” It even looks like there was room for the extra letter that “Chick” has. Having worked in the sign industry, I can say that sign makers are not very good proofreaders.

    Who’s the blonde? Don’t tell me that’s B.O.’s cousin. She looks totally different.

    Consistency isn’t the strip’s strong point!

    Sam sees what he thinks is a pastrami sandwich shop and is investigating whether or not they give free samples to law enforcement!

    Good morning™, unanticipated encounters !

    Shouldn’t they be in some tv studio C to do the ad ?  What is the significance of doing the ad at this exhibition of games ?  I can only think it saves on extra panels, from the switching back and forth from the studio to here where Dicky is supposed to be doing serious Po-leece work. Seeing Chick Tracy and crew will distract him thus enabling another successful Gameboy grab.

    Chick Tracy II will soon disappear just coincidently as Super Chicken arrives to save the day and stops Gameboy.

    It’s hard to tell from the dialogue if the sign with Tracy’s name on it was a goof by the sign painters, more sloppy editing on TCA’s part, or if the promoter for some reason was expecting Tracy all along. And who uses “Miss” anymore? Promoters in TracyWorld, evidently, who are about 30 years behind the times.

    Gotta give Mike credit….he tied in all the stuff people were howling about into the main story line with a nifty little twist.

    Chick tracy 2 will either A) be stolen to play a rousing game of farmer in the dell… or, B) more likely knowing how Mike writes, apprehending gameboy

    I think B.O.s presence there would discourage customers, but you never know, the Blonde might be the main draw anyway!

    An increasingly angry man with a gun. Always a good thing. The chicken makes ONE false move and it’s fricassee time.

    I pointed this out very late yesterday.

    “For those of you who despise when I point out a misplaced comma or colorist mistake, just remember this”;

    “If it wasn’t for posters such as Firedyke, Ratster, Another Fake, Greedo and yours truly posting our daily nonsense there would be about 10 strip related comments each day!

    Be careful what you ask for, you might regret when you get it!

    What is the word? A proud spokes-bird perched by her better half

    Her suit skintight. Meet Ms. De-Lite. So right from crown to calf.

    Mistakes were made. Tracy waylaid. Not here to meet nor greet

    To apprehend the thief Gameboy is Tracy’s cup of meat.

    What might Sam see? As far as we know now it may be brisket

    Yet Catchem has a nose for crime. Fraught danger? He will risk it.

    Panel #3-what is Sam looking at? Maybe something that actually has something to do with the plot? Did the current criminal mastermind put that sign up so he can get away while DT is distracted?

    1- It makes perfect sense for the chicken to be at this whatever the hell it is.

    2- Why does Tracy have an eyepatch in Panel 3. Is he cosplaying a pirate.

    3- Just why????

    Looks like Dick is being presented as “endorsing the product”,and he NEVER does t hat.

    Meanwhile,the 1960’s Honeymoon dolls STILL aren’t selling.

    1-DT: OH BOY! I GET TO MEET DICK TRA…wait a second – that’s ME!

    2-FANBOY: It’s YOU! Can I get an autograph? DT: I am NOT Dick Tracy…

    3-slips on the eyepatch See? Would Dick Tracy be wearing an eyepatch? FANBOY: Oh. The yellow hat and coat confused me. Sorry.

    B.O.: Hey. That one-eyed man looks like Brick Bracy! What a co-ink-a diK. SAM: Another stake out ruined. HEY! YOU WITH THE DICE MASK! COVID IS OVER YA DUMMY!

    With a personal appearance at the Locher Auditorium for the Antique Show and Sale, Miss De-Lite (Klinique Plenty) and Chick Tracy II (an obnoxious hen) provide a photo op for the masses in attendance [it seems we have jumped ahead a day or two in strip time and the show is now open]; but Dick Tracy is also advertised, and our detective is not very happy at finding himself being exploited without his even knowing about it (see the stern reaction in panel 2). B.O. feigns innocence, but I think it is he who neglected to ask Tracy’s permission and presence. Tracy and Sam are there on stakeout for Gameboy, not for the Chick’n De-Lites-sponsored photo op! But, wait! Sam sees something questionable (literally, “?”) in panel 3, a hook for tomorrow and potentially something actually worth our attention….
