    Hat’s off to Staton and Curtis for their richly deserved award. What they have done and are doing with Dick Tracy is remarkable and riveting. It is good to see excellence acknowledged and rewarded. Congratulations to Team Tracy!

    Love the old characters in the strip. Would love to see Joe Period come back. He was sentenced to the electric chair in 1956, but could have earned a stay of execution. Also, the 2 guys that were of Oodles gang in 1955. They went to prison, but didn’t die. All of these guys would be great additions to new stories.
