A Cop Called Tracy

 COCT   (Avalon, 1999)

™ and ©1999 Tribune Media Services

Modern comic fans may best know him from a Warren Beatty film, but America’s Comic Group remembers the daily comic strip in which Dick Tracy got his start, decades ago, and reprints those early Chester Gould stories in this title. Here, the square-jawed—literally—straightlaced hero, a master detective with guns, gadgets, and an unflappable demeanor at his disposal, meets a beautiful woman whose amnesia might be hiding more than her identity. It might also be protecting a murderer. Tracy tries to get to the bottom of the ever-deepening mystery, while shadowy criminals try to stop him and bodies begin to pile up. Will he be next?

Count on Tracy to get to the bottom of it—and a day later, launch right into the next case. The yellow-trenchcoated detective recalls a simpler time, in both newspaper comics, and in fictional crime dramas themselves.
