The square-jawed detective fights a menagerie of grotesque villains in this staple of comics and crime fiction!

The square-jawed detective fights it out with one thug after another, including Lispy and the visually grotesque villain appropriately named The Brain. These stories are replete with murder, suicide, gangland execution, dope smuggling, a deadly natural disaster, and not one but two main characters on the verge of death.. All this and the return of retired Chief Brandon in the penultimate volume of Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, collecting strips from July 7, 1974 to March 14, 1976.

Complete Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Vol. 26

Chester Gould (w & a & c)

Having returned to policing duty on Planet Earth, former Space Sheriff Tracy finds a world markedly changed from the one he left. Feeling handcuffed by expanded legal protections afforded suspects and stricter guidelines of evidence, Tracy all but begs bad guys to shoot first, and he may get his wish, thanks to nemeses such as explosion-crazed Jonny Scorn, the hand grenade-toting revolutionary called El Tigress, and the aptly-named Dope King. These early ’70s adventures also see the dauntless detective facing off against one of the strip’s best late-era grotesque villains: Pouch, who uses a repulsive hidden flap in his neck to hide anything from stolen diamonds to automatic pistols. Volume 26 reprints all dailies and Sundays from December 24, 1970 to September 27, 1972.
