We here at the Depot would like to wish all our veterans a wonderful Veterans Day and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you do or have done. Thank you!
Detective Tracy and creator Chester Gould have long had a special affection for those in the military and this was never more apparent than during World War II. While the top cop battled Nazi forces like Pruneface stateside, he transcended the newspapers to sell war bonds, take part in Armed Forces Radio, and frequently make his way to the battle-front by way of postcards, operation names and dropping bombs. Browse a quick Veterans gallery of pictures and video below, to see what we’re talking about.
In addition to our best Veterans day wishes, the Depot would like to congratulate Mike Curtis and Joe Staton for winning the 2016 Akron Comiccon Excellence Award for their work on Dick Tracy. The duo was presented with the award while at their Nov 6th panel in Akron. Well done gentlemen!
