Clover Press and the Library of American Comics are proud to announce brand new editions of
The Complete Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Vols. 1-6!
Some of you sharp-eyed gumshoes guessed correctly from our teasers that we are bringing back our favorite hard-boiled detective with larger than ever editions of the first six volumes that were originally published by IDW beginning way back in 2006!
The Library of American Comics took over the series with volume seven and immediately increased the trim size to allow the Sunday pages more room to breathe. Ever since, larger versions of the first six volumes has been one of the most frequent requests LOAC has received! We are thrilled to finally be able to make this a reality!
The contents of these new editions will be exactly the same as the previous editions, with black and white dailies, Sundays, and all the same essays and interviews by Max Allan Collins. The first IDW volume included color scans of the pre-continuity Sundays, and we are happy to provide new color restorations for these stories!
SPILL THE BEANS!
WHEN WILL THESE BE AVAILABLE??
We will be releasing two volumes at a time! Vols. 1 and 2 will hit stores in September and will be available to order through your comic shop later this month. Vols. 3 and 4 will follow in November, and Vols. 5 and 6 will debut in January, 2024.

This is great news! Is there any possibility that some of the volumes 7-29 that have gone out of print can go back to press? Thank you.
We discussed the current state of going back to press on out-of-print volumes in this posting from February 16th: http://libraryofamericancomics.com/fomo-equals-bntbs/. That’s still an accurate reflection of the current reality, but one never knows if or when things might change!
