- Full Description
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.
