Overview

Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy, Volume 11 by Chester Gould

This volume introduces Mumbles — one of Dick Tracy's greatest villains — and sees Tracy form the Crime Stoppers Club, teaching young boys and girls crime detection techniques. The fascinating (and sometimes grotesque) parade of characters continues, including Coffyhead, Hypo, Bronko, Kiss Andtell, Acres O'Riley, Heels Beals, and Autumn Hews. Plus, everyone dreads seeing what the baby born to B.O. Plenty and Gravel Gertie will look like!

Edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, with introductions by Max Allan Collins and Jeff Kersten, this collection contains all the daily and Sunday comic strips from March 17, 1947 through September 26, 1948.

About the Author

Chester Gould (1900–1985) was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma, the son of a newspaperman and grandson of a circuit-riding preacher. He attended Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State University) before transferring to Northwestern University in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1923. He produced the minor comic strips Fillum Fables and The Radio Catts before striking it big with Dick Tracy in 1931. Originally titled Plainclothes Tracy, the rechristened strip became one of the most successful and lauded comic strips of all time, as well as a media and merchandising sensation. He was twice accorded the “Cartoonist of the Year” Reuben Award by his peers. Gould continued to write and illustrate Dick Tracy until his retirement in 1977.
