In the early 1930s, Chester Gould dramatically altered the comics landscape with a new style of gritty realism torn from Chicago's headlines and fueled by the hard-hitting gangster films of the era. And with this new kind of storytelling came a new way of coloring comics, with strong, solid blacks and primary colors, a style as bold and vibrant as the stories themselves. Now, to fully appreciate Chester Gould's incredible artwork and storytelling, Sunday Press has reprinted these comics for the first time in the original colors, fully restored and in full tabloid size.
This selection of Dick Tracy Sunday pages from 1931 to 1939 features Goulds most infamous villains of the decade, with four complete stories, plus forty more fabulous Sundays highlighting the villains and heroes not seen in the featured cases. Each of these sections features detailed commentary by Tracy historian Garyn G. Roberts.
This high-quality, hardbound volume was produced in collaboration with the Chester Gould-Dick Tracy Museum.
Experience the adventures of the world's most famous comic strip detective just as they appeared more than three-quarters of a century ago.
