Recommended. By Chester Gould. In the early 1930s, Chester Gould dramatically altered the comics landscape with a new style of gritty realism torn from Chicago’s headlines.

In the early 1930s, Chester Gould dramatically altered the comics landscape with a new style of gritty realism torn from Chicago’s headlines. With this new kind of storytelling came a new way of coloring comics, a style as bold and vibrant as the stories themselves. This selection of Dick Tracy Sunday comics from 1931 to 1939 features Gould’s most infamous villains of the decade; four complete stories plus forty more fabulous Sunday pages, reprinted for the first time in the original colors, and in full tabloid size.

Experience the adventures of the world’s most famous comic strip detective just as they appeared more than three-quarters of a century ago. Also included is a bonus four-page tabloid-size flyer, which was the Syndicate's 1931 promotion for the daily and Sunday strips, several of which are featured here.

And more: 13-page introduction, packed with cool vintage photos, artwork, and Tracy merchandise, 1930s and 40s comic books, paint books, Big Little Books, movie posters and lobby cards, target games and a toy revolver. Very cool, all in color. Handsome cloth spine (in classic Dick Tracy yellow) with dramatic cover art.
