    Now THIS is the correct way to build suspense and create anticipation to read what will happen tomorrow.

    Identifiable cars, lifelike expressions, lots of detail… and the byline is correct now: “by Joe Staton and Mike Curtis”. This is really a pleasure to read! I am happy!

    Even if the “special guests” are Fly-Face and the Fifth, until now the storyline is not exactly as it was on the Tribute Site. I am really excited about reading Dick Tracy again. I stopped reading with the “Mr. Pops” story - then, good to see DT just awoke, Patton is back, Lizz is pretty and I am eager to read DT every morning! Congratulations to the new team.

    I really like the way the first panel allows the reader to imagine that most of the unpleasant stuff that had gone before was a dream - the previous years of stories can be reduced to a night (“inception” time).

    I really enjoy the detailed art, and the way they avoided doing just “talking heads”. I enjoyed Locher’s work during the Collins days – but this is a nice, amazing new beginning! I am really happy to read Dick Tracy again.

    Thank you Bill – I will be back here in 3 weeks, then.

    I grew up with Dick Tracy drawn by Locher - and really enjoyed it (I started reading during the Collins/Locher era)… and even if he is an artist I really admired, now it pains me to see the strip like this.

    I will be back as a regular reader March, then - Thanks!

    Oh, I thought the new team was already working on Dick Tracy… I haven’t been back here in 2 years or something … Apparently, I didn’t lose much.

    When do we get to see the first strip by Staton and Curtis?

    well… according to the GoComics Wikipedia entry, it doesn’t exist… :( apparently someone removed it from the list (again)!

    … and doing it with the blinds opened! OH THE HORROR! Or is he just having a calory-charged breakfast in front of everyone? Oh, the mysteries of Frog Applause…

    Saving the world is always a relevant incentive to action. But I am very intrigued by the phallic-looking elephant with glasses. I can’t read the title of the book he is reading!
