I'm busy with too many things, so Dick Tracy is the only strip I read regularly these days.
To get a warrant, you have to convince a judge that there is some legal reason for it, no matter if things look suspicious in the eyes of the detectives. Ty looked and acted suspicious, but the police don’t have any proof that he lives there or even that he goes there for lunch.
Unless the balloon contains a clue to the next case (seems unlikely to me), I can well imagine it staying unopened past the end of this story. I guess we will find out eventually.
There have been a few of those in the last 10 years, but they use them very sparingly. Sound effects are not really a big tradition with the Dick Tracy strip.
And with national anthem(s). I used to watch the Buffalo, N.Y., station late at night and they played both the U.S. and Canadian national anthems at sign-off.
Well, Pouch did promise his client that he would set a pickup within 24 hours. I doubt that he really wants to sit in the club for 24 hours straight. It probably isn’t even open 24 hours a day. He’s somewhere, waiting for good news from Tiger Lilly, I suppose.
Have you seen the future? Now that I have, I wonder about you.
In fact, probably not, because that won’t get Aquarius the information he seeks. I think the idea is to look threatening and hope that loosens Tiger’s tongue.
Good morning™, cellar dwellers!
Tiger Lilly’s lies are not believable, unfortunately for him. I’m sure that Aquarius knows very well that T.L. is not a random burglar. I’m pretty sure Aquarius observed him following hom back at the skating rink. That hammer looks menacing!
I imagine that Pouch knows the details, but it might be hard for him to reconstruct the document.
Which sign were you thinking of?
