_dick tracy is an american comic strip featuring dick tracy (originally plainclothes tracy), a tough and intelligent police detective created by chester gould. The strip made its debut on october 14, 1931, in the detroit mirror. It was distributed by the chicago tribune new york news syndicate. Gould wrote and drew the strip until 1972. Since that time, various artists and writers have continued the strip, which still runs in newspapers today. Dick tracy has also been the hero in a number of films, notably one in which warren beatty played the crime fighter in 1990. Writer tom de haven praised gould's dick tracy as "a weird, demented, and (no kidding) outrageously funny american gothic", while comics historian brian walker described dick tracy as a "ghoulishly entertaining creation" which had "gripping stories filled with violence and pathos"._
_Creation and Early Years_
_gould drafted an idea for a detective named "plainclothes tracy" and sent it to joseph medill patterson of the chicago tribune new york news syndicate. Patterson suggested changing the hero's name to dick tracy, and also put forward an opening story line in which tracy joined the police after his girlfriend's father was murdered by robbers. Gould agreed to these ideas, and dick tracy was first published on october 4, 1931. The strip was instantly popular, and was soon appearing in newspapers across the united states. The strip's popularity also resulted in the creation of numerous dick tracy merchandise, including novelizations, toys, and games. In april 1937, a poll of adult comic strip readers in fortune voted dick tracy their third favorite comic strip after little orphan annie and popeye. However, dick tracy was also attacked by some journalists as being too violent, a criticism that would dog gould throughout his time on the strip._
*please note: collecting and selling comics has been my hobby for over 30 years. Due to the hours of my job i can usually only mail packages out on saturdays. I send out first class or priority mail which takes 2-7 days to arrive in the usa and air mail international which takes 5 -10 days or more depending on where you live in the world. I do not "sell" postage or packaging and charge less than the actual cost of mailing. I package items securely and wrap well. Most pages come in an archival sleeve with acid free backing board at no extra charge. If you are dissatisfied with an item. Let me know and i will do my best to make it right.
Many thanks to all of my 1,000's of past customers around the world.
enjoy your hobby everyone and have fun collecting!
