With one end of a rope around Tracy's neck and the other end attached to an innocent young boy hanging out of a highrise window, Chester Gould proves that he can still invent unique death traps for the sharpjawed detective. The tension and excitement continue throughout the stories collected in this book, as Tracy and his team are led on one relentless chase after another. And just when they think they've captured the criminal mastermind known as "Button," he escapes...and escapes again! Also featured are Button's sister named Hope Lezz the knifethrowing exvaudevillian KeenotheGreat a con man named Big Brass, who peddles atomic nose rings and a seemingly demure grandmother named Florabelle, who dresses up her longdead brother's skull with a wig, hat, shirt, tie, and cigar...and just happens to keep a razorsharp guillotine in her basement. Things never slow down in Dick Tracy Volume 27, which reprints all dailies and Sundays from September 28, 1972 to July 6, 1974. "Chester Gould introduced a new hardhitting type of realism [that] marked a radical and historic departure: the comics were no longer just funny." Jerry Robinson, The Comics "This black and white morality play of Good vs. Evil was famously haunted by its gallery of grotesque and aptly named villains like Mumbles, the Brow and Flattop. Each of their faces was literally a "map," a map of hell, indicated by the most peculiar configuration of lines the artist could manage. What great cartooning...it's time to build new bookshelves to welcome one of America's singular artistic achievements." Art Spiegelman Ongoing series that reprints the complete comic strips by Chester Gould from 1931 1977 in 29 definitive volumes.

Övrig information

Chester Gould (1900-1985) was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma, the son of a newspaperman and grandson of a circuit-riding preacher. He attended Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State University) before transferring to Northwestern University in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1923. He produced the minor comic strips Fillum Fables and The Radio Catts before striking it big with Dick Tracy in 1931. Originally titled Plainclothes Tracy, the rechristened strip became one of the most successful and lauded comic strips of all time, as well as a media and merchandising sensation. He was twice accorded the "Cartoonist of the Year" Reuben Award by his peers. Gould continued to write and illustrate Dick Tracy until his retirement in 1977.
