Details

Dick Tracy meets Spots (a small-time grifter who suddenly gets big-time ambitions), a hitman named Halfa Million and his brother, the syndicate boss "Willie-the-Fifth," plus a legal eagle named Flyface, one of Chester Gould's most visually memorable villains. And throw in a couple of skeletal remains, a death-dealing tidal wave, a gun moll named Olive Tomate, and the return of B.O. Plenty and much more.

Here too is Gravel Gertie, and a plump, cereal-overeating Sparkle Plenty--then watch the sparks fly, as Dick Tracy nears its thirtieth anniversary in the complete strips from July 12, 1959 through February 19, 1961.

See Spots before your eyes!
Very good stories in this volume, especially the months-long pursuit of Spots, a conman turned murderer with a funny sidekick who nearly drives him crazy when hiding out in a park monument tank. I even picked up an in-joke from Gould, where the baseball-themed poem from Ogden is credited to Brickhouse, the Cubs announcer at the Tribune's Chicago TV station. Top Dick Tracy here.
