I'm busy with too many things, so Dick Tracy is the only strip I read regularly these days.
Yeah. I was a regular watcher of “In Living Color,” actually. I was just teasing about anyone know what used gym socks taste like.
The dailies are inked by a different person and in a tighter style than the Sundays.
Peanutbutter is not really a new plot. He’s working on alerting Dick Tracy to Vera’s kidnapping. Diet doesn’t really believe that Mysta is “missing,” maybe until now when Stellaluna alerted him. Diet’s new invention will likely appear in the next story. We’ve only been given a hint that it’s coming.
Good morning™, everybody!
I guess that his friends are producing a video game based on his comic strip.
He also looked different Friday and Saturday, at least as regards skin tone.

That’s true. It’s not an easy job, but they could make a little more effort for continuity with the Sundays.

There were always throwaway panels, going all the way back to 1932, at least one optional panel per Sunday. The specifications did not change around the time that Mike took over, but Mike has used the same Sunday layout every week for a few years now.
The last real change to the way the Sunday strip was specified was at the beginning of October, 1974, when they started making many of the panels bigger in the available space, finally changing the rigid 12-panel format of identically-sized panels to something more varied.
