Four years ago Joe Staton and Mike Curtis took Dick Tracy’s reigns from the retiring hands of Dick Locher and what a thrilling four years it has been. We’ve seen villains new and old, mixed together in original and complex plots that challenge the full detective crew, their friends and family. We’ve seen history and character development that has long been absent and seen crossovers, tributes and homages that help to pull in new fans. Each summer we look forward to the now annual summer blockbuster and subsequent Harvey Award nomination and win. Mike has moved the stalled Dick Tracy story forward with unrestricted direction and purpose and Joe’s artwork far exceeds anything we could have ever hoped for.
On behalf of myself and the Depot (which is myself), a big thank you to my favorite comic strip duo and the whole Dick Tracy team, including Shelley Pleger, Shane Fisher and Jim Doherty. The last four years of skillfully crafted crime fighting adventure have been a pleasure and I fully expect to be celebrating this March 14th anniversary for many years to come.
Happy 4 Years!
