    This storyline is just draging on…

  2. 9 days ago on Annie

    Yes, last we see of her – except for a photo in the final sunday…

  3. 11 days ago on Annie

    We never did find out what happened to her after she left the strip…guess Mike Curtis didn’t want to pick up that thread over in DICK TRACY…

    Who’d beleive Tribune strips on a Hearst Site – rivals on the funny pages for decades….

    Santiago gets written out shortly- worst mistake the strip ever did post-Starr – and that is saying something.

    I’m not sure if it’s been answered, but What are Eric Costello’s credentals as a writer and why Mike may have chose him to appearently now be his regular fill in guest writer and not writing as his ghost writer, like Roy Thomas writing the Spider-Man strip for Stan Lee (and only got $300 a month!)

    The possibility of Eric taking over is just speculation. Mike is not the first, or last comic strip writer to bring in fill-in writers regardless of reason. As for how Mike and Joe ended up with the strip, those strips were more of an “unsolicited audition” than a “violation of TCA’s copyrights”.

    If anything Eric as guest writer out in the open is better than Eric “ghosting” the writing duties as Roy Thomas did for Stan Lee for Decades on the the Spider-Man newspaper strip.

    However, the fact the 100th Anniversary of “Little Orphan Annie” being pushed up to earlier in the year (Rather than the Summer for the actual anniversary – which I’ve got a feeling will be reprinted over the summer), followed by the “Croptop” storyline makes me wonder that Mike had those plotted already in advance and we are looking at another Emergency fill in.

    There is one thing that seems to have been overlooked – “Broadway” Bates was implied to be related to Oswald Coblepot – The Penguin, which means a version of Batman and Robin (Most likely a version based on the 1940’s Newspaper Comic Strip) exists in this universe…so how can there be a fiction version of the famous car?

    I don’t know of a single continuing strip that doesn’t do a “Monday filler” for papers or sites that don’t run the Sundays – Even Tribune’s own site doesn’t post the Sundays for DICK TRACY!

    Who still Robs banks in 2024?
