Square-Jawed Justice Returns to Comics in Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive

One of the most iconic comic-strip heroes of all time is back in action, courtesy of IDW Publishing’s new series, Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive! Reimagined for the 21st century through a retro lens by the superstar team of Michael AllredLee AllredRich Tommaso, and Laura Allred, the four-issue miniseries launches in September… so criminals had best beware!

In Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive, the All-American​ detective just made the biggest collar of his career… and it only cost him his job. Now, the honest cop has packed his bags for “the city by the lake,” and its criminal community is firmly in his sights! Featuring cover art and co-written by Eisner Award-winning superstar Michael Allred, the new series features strange villains, crooked cops, and gunfights galore.

Since 1931, Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy has thrilled millions with tales of good guys versus bad guys, while showcasing the latest criminology techniques and old-fashioned values. Throughout the years, the quintessential detective had numerous partners and sent thousands of rogues either to the slammer or their graves, but there were always more bizarre, out-of-this-world villains (with funny names and hideous faces) to pursue.

• It’s the climax (IN SPACE!) of our story as Squirrel Girl (IN SPACE!) faces off against an alien armada (IN SPACE; YES, THIS IS ALSO IN SPACE; THE WHOLE STORY IS IN SPACE!).
• Not just her life hangs in the balance, but also the lives of Tippy, Nancy, Loki, Drax, the Silver Surfer AND an entire planet full of squirrels, so if you believe that stakes can be raised simply by adding more characters into the mix, GOOD NEWS: YOU ARE IN LUCK!
• Will Squirrel Girl survive? Will the alien grifters be brought to justice? Will we see more of Horse Thor, The Thor Who Is Actually A Horse And Who May Have Been Invented Solely For This Solicit Text But Maybe Not?
• Only time, and this comic in particular, will tell!
