Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 17 Hardback
Dick Tracy celebrates its 25th Anniversary as Chester Gould ups theante in his assault on juvenile delinquency in the startling - andliterally haunting - conclusion to the Flattop Jr. saga. Meanwhile, thesquad room becomes co-ed when Lizz permanently joins the cast.
Money remains themotivating factor for a new host of crazed villains, including the gymnasticmurderesses, the Kitten Sisters; killer con men, the Clipso Brothers; twodifferent spouse slayers; a notorious counterfeiter; and a "blind"drug pusher. And, Gould interposes some comedic relief - the return ofbandleader Spike Dyke and the introduction of Morin Plenty (B.O.'s88-year-old father) and his sugar-addicted wife Blossom - but humorousinterludes are short-lived.
Tragedy rules the day in Volume 17, reprintingstrips from May 14, 1956 through December 14, 1957.
