Volume one of the new “Dick Tracy” ebook series by noted artist Joe Staton (Justice Society of America, Green Lantern) and writer Mike Curtis (Richie Rich, Casper the Friendly Ghost) features tough cases and grotesque villains in collected Dick Tracy comic strips.
The time is now. The place is the City by the Lake. The man is Dick Tracy. Decades after the era of Al Capone, Pruneface, Ma Barker and Flattop, the good guys are still fighting the bad guys with guns, guts and technology in the continuing saga of Dick Tracy.
The Staton/Curtis Dick Tracy comic strip has a strong connection to the art and excellent storytelling of Chester Gould without being imitative or derivative.
