Dick Tracy closes out the 1960s by moonlighting--he becomes Head of Security and Law Enforcement for Diet Smith's operations based on the moon. Soon Tracy learns that an international crime syndicate, the Apparatus, has infiltrated Smith's organization on the lunar surface. Determined to expand its nefarious empire, the Apparatus snares Dick and Tess Tracy, leaving them caught in one of the most frightening death traps in the history of the series--leaving  Tracy blind, with the killers still after him! Tracy then meets Tinky, a young blind girl who will play a key role throughout the 1970s.

Two other major characters are also introduced. First is cartoonist Vera Alldid, who comes looking for his step-uncle B.O. Plenty and instead finds himself enamored with B.O. and Gravel Gertie's daughter Sparkle. Is there such a thing as "kissin' step-cousins?"

The second is Groovy Grove, fresh from prison after serving twelve years for a crime he didn't commit. Groovy joins the police force and not only has to defend himself against a blackmail scheme from his former cellmate, Diamonds, and his accomplice the Doll...he has to rescue kidnapped little Tinky!

The adventures of this iconic square-jawed detective fighting a menagerie of grotesque villains remain one of the highlights in the history of not just comics but crime fiction in general.

Five-page introduction by writer Max Allan Collins. Max took over writing Dick Tracy from Gould, from 1977 until 1993. He's also the author of Road to Perdition, and winner of severa lMystery Writers awards for Nathan Heller and other works.
