Forgive me for some mercantilism, but Dick Tracy comic collectors can get a look at the next volume (22) of IDW’s Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy collection now available for pre-order on amazon with a scheduled release date of June 17th. Volume #22 includes years April 13th, 1964 to December 26th, 1965. Active readers following the ongoing exploits of mastermind Mr. Bribery and the computer A.I. Matty Squared may be excited to buy this volume for the original Matty Squared and Mr. Bribery cases from 1965. Also included will be Moon Maid’s first foray’s into vigilantism, Chester Gould’s own parody of himself, Chet Jade, and the mystery of Lita Flite.
Also, I would be remiss to mention that the Moon Maid graced volume #21 of this collection was due out last month but delays have pushed its release date to the end of January. The price on that one has dropped as it approaches the release date and now may be the right price to pick it up if you are waiting for a deal.
In other Tracy news, Chris Sims at the Comics Alliance is written a great article on the current Dick Tracy / Spirit crossover. If you have time I suggest you give it a read!
