Dick Tracy Vol. 20: 1961-1962
Written and illustrated by Chester Gould
Dick Tracy embarks on an intense seven-month 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.
