    Well… Welcome, Shelley!

    This is playing out very well. I have no idea what’s going to happen next; each day is a surprise. The strip has immediacy and suspense and mystery again. Well done.

    That said, given the recent anniversary of the feature, I had half expected that the “time drone” narrative would lead to some sort of detailed revisiting of Tracy’s origin. I was a little afraid of an old DC Comics-like scenario: DT would have been thrown back into the distant past to meet the young would-be “Plainclothes Tracy” at the start of his career; the older detective (understandably concealing his identity) would somehow befriend the tyro cop and work with him to solve the murder of Tess’ father! Maybe it would all turn out to be a dream! This might have actually worked passably, with Joe doing a loose impression of Gould’s 1931 art style, but it’s an old hat idea, and I’m glad they didn’t try it.

    Anyway, I’m quite impressed by the strip in recent days. The art and storytelling has been of a high order.

    I agree completely.

    It’s a shame the “time drone” was apparently destroyed — Tracy and Sam could have used it to try to find the survivors!

    Imagine what Walter Peck of the Environmental Protection Agency will make of this!

    …and he probably had a roomful of overdue library books, and years ago, regularly called directory assistance to get numbers he could have easily looked up himself.

    Is that first Sunday strip — from Oct. 4, 1931 — on-line anywhere? I’d like to see it.
