- Full Description
Two worlds are in turmoil when the inter-species romance between Junior and the Moon Maid heats up. Can the twinkling of little antennae be too far in the future? Back on Earth, Dick Tracy quits, and gets taken prisoner by the Moon Maid's father! Diet Smith introduces the Two-Way Wrist Television fifty years before the Apple Watch, while Moon Maid turns vigilante and a series of events reveal a mob plot to kill both her and Dick Tracy. The clues eventually lead to Mr. Bribery, who proudly displays his collection of shrunken heads of the people who have crossed him.
Wild and wilder stuff as Gould pushed into new, even more bizarre realms with science fiction as well as the usual dark skullduggery, murder and mayhem. Max Collins in the introduction, titled "Moon Struck," chronicles this bizarre period of Tracy and his cohorts. And a bonus afterword by Jeff Kersten offers us 14 pages of rare photos of Gould, the story of the "search" for a real live moon maid (a contest run by the Chicago-Tribune) and photos of the leggy entrants and the ultimate winner, complete with minature horns.They even produced a Moon Maid doll, this was so popular! Also Gould's personal Christmas card and a special drawing for the annual Reuben Award booklet with Tracy and the moon vehicle.
