Overview

Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy, Volume 20 by Chester Gould

Dick Tracy embarks on a seven-month-long complicated manhunt when he relentlessly tracks the Brush and a million-dollar sack of cash—but with his foe on the lam without his trademark face wig, Tracy doesn't even know what the murderer looks like! The dauntless detective also encounters killer chimps and slashing panthers, protects Little Boy Beard from a deadly revenge plot, investigates a shady surgeon named Keip Choppin, and finds himself immersed in a forty-year-old cold case suddenly turned very hot. The strip enters its fourth decade as Chester Gould also presents a poignant story that rivals the "Model" narrative, when Tracy has to protect Junior from disturbing news about an important figure from the boy's past. Included are all strips from February 20, 1961 through August 26, 1962.

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.
