Dick Tracy celebrates its 25th Anniversary as Chester Gould ups the ante in his assault on juvenile delinquency in the startling - and literally haunting - conclusion to the Flattop Jr. saga. Meanwhile, the squad room becomes co-ed when Lizz permanently joins the cast. Money remains the motivating factor for a new host of crazed villains, including the gymnastic murderesses, the Kitten Sisters; killer con men, the Clipso Brothers; two different spouse slayers; a notorious counterfeiter; and a "blind" drug pusher. And, Gould interposes some comedic relief - the return of bandleader Spike Dyke and the introduction of Morin Plenty (B.O.'s 88-year-old father) and his sugar-addicted wife Blossom - but humorous interludes are short-lived. Tragedy rules the day in Volume 17, reprinting strips from May 14, 1956 through December 14, 1957
The complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy dailies & Sundays by Chester Gould( Book )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
"The 1950s just about came to a close in Volume Eighteen as Chester Gould introduces one character after another whose crimes start off as relatively petty, but who end up trapped in larger and more deadly conspiracies. New characters include the gamecock queen Miss Egghead, Cuban secret serviceman Wunbrow, the tragic Headache, and bizarre Popsie and her mother. Throw in a wacko named Pantsy, a cross-country chase after a million dollars of hidden heist loot, Tracy left for dead on a deserted island, a couple more million in slot machine coins, and a throwback to the 1940s in the Mole-lookalike named Rhodent, and it's clear that Chester Gould is definitely not resting on his laurels. Included are all strips from December 15, 1957 through July 11, 1959."--Amazon.com
