Complete Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Vol. 24
Chester Gould (w & a & c)
Chester Gould’s morality play enters the late ’60s, as the cartoonist tackles concepts of retribution, constitutional rights, economic warfare, and Space-Age intrigue—all amidst the usual array of murder and violence. The stakes, however, seem higher, and the body count soars: death in space, on the high seas, behind closed doors—by gun, by laser, by asphyxiation, by explosion, and by freezing. Plus, a special feature about the aborted 1967 Dick Tracy TV show from the same producer who made Batman a pop culture icon. Included are all strips from July 3, 1967 to April 2, 1969.
