"Dick Tracy introduced violence -- blunt, ironic, and retributional violence -- to the comics page. The quintissential Dick Tracy line about his crimefighting tactics? "I'm going to shoot first and investigate later!" The strip is also notable for its introduction of scientific detection to comics, a theme that Gould continued to exploit well into the 1960s. And now, more than 80 years after the first Tracy strips, Gould's massive body of work is being collected in its entirety." -- Publisher's website

Dick Tracy : the Collins casefiles by Max Allan Collins( Book )

in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dick Tracy debuted in American newspapers in 1931, a revolutionary cops and robbers strip that drew its inspiration from the mob-drenched headlines of the day. Hero Tracy had joined the police force in the wake of a personal tragedy and set out to settle the score with an endless string of underworld figures. Acclaimed mystery author Max Allan Collins took over scripting duties on Dick Tracy from the strip's creator Chester Gould, in 1978 and began an 11-year run on the strip that was at once faithful to the original and as innovative as had been the original on its first publication." -- Back cover, volume 1
