Husband of Shelley Pleger, the artist doing ink & letters for Dick Tracy.
Pretty much Panel 3 here:
Tracy – Hmm… Charlie the glasses and hair are to iconic, we need you to blend in and not stand out so much.
Tracy – OK, maybe that wasn’t such a good idea.
I’m not sure protecting Mordred was the job as much as ensuring Mordred didn’t escape custody. Mordred was a psychopath and a murderer.
There have been a few hints that haven’t been picked up on.
1. Oscars car.
2. The “Accident”.
3. Why Kelly called Oscar.
4. The Pierview Hotel they are in.
Think about them and the story evolves even more.
I believe his limitation is his own knowledge. He seems to rely on his own engineering background for most of his creations. But, I believe it would be totally possible for him to say “Hey Dittos, analyze and copy this item”. If he didn’t know how it worked he could still ask the dittos to make a copy. Once they had done it once, they should remember how to do it again as many times as needed. Then it becomes a matter of whether or not Wally ever thought of doing that.
Topsiders wouldn’t have let him keep it, I’m sure.
Now the question is, can Wally use Dittos to manufacture a zero gun? Heck, even a Holly Bomb would be welcome right now!
… LET ME IN!
Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!
Then I’ll use my zero scalpel and slash my way in!
Time for all Grexing to take a Grexit! Stage right. Stage left even!
Shelley and I live in what is probably the last bastion of hippiedom, Eugene, Oregon. The annual Oregon Country Fair out by Veneta can only be described as Hippie Central. That area is also used by the SCA. We also have the Faerie Worlds fair over by Mt. Pisca. Attend any of these events and you will definitely feel the Hippie vibe. I would say that most of the venders for the Saturday Market, located downtown, would also fit the bill.
For those trying to understand the “again” reference.
Yes, very early on during the current teams tenure.
