Hopefully Joe Staton won’t mind if I boost one of his comments regarding today’s Sunday (1/18/2015) strip. I found it pretty cool and goes to show the talent working for Team Tracy with inker/letterer Shelley Pleger it stepping up.
“Secrets of the comics revealed. Mike Curtis and I had some problems with the original version of this Sunday and we were running out of time.Shelley Pleger, our resourceful inker/letterer sprang into action. “Here’s a sketch, guys, maybe this will work,” she said. “Perfect!” we replied, and I inked her sketch and it was done. We’re sure she could go on without either of us if the need ever arose.” – Joe
Let me add my voice to chorus, well done Shelley!
Also check out the Ask Chris series on comicsalliance.com where Chris explains the recent Dick Tracy and Little Orphan Annie crossover to the lay person, describing it as the weirdest crossover of 2014. It’s a humorous yet very accurate piece!
