Dick Tracy Vol. 22: 1964-1965


Written and illustrated by Chester Gould

Two worlds are in turmoil when the inter-species romance between Junior and Moon Maid heats up, causing Dick Tracy to quit the police force and Moon Maid’s father—the Governor of the Moon—to make Tracy his prisoner! But outlaws become in-laws when the young couple ties the knot. Can the twinkling of little antennae be too far in the future? Back on Earth, Diet Smith introduces the Two-Way Wrist Television fifty years before the Apple Watch, while Tracy rejoins the force and gets embroiled in a decades-old mystery around a cartoonist named…Chet! When Moon Maid turns vigilante and runs afoul of the criminal Matty Square, a series of events reveal a plot to kill both her and Dick Tracy. The clues eventually lead to Mr. Bribery, who proudly displays his collection of shrunken heads of the people who have crossed him. Volume 22 includes the complete comic strips from April 13, 1964 through December 26, 1965.
