Dick Tracy: the Collins Casefiles Volume 2

Rick Fletcher
 Acclaimed mystery author and comics writer Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition) took over scripting Chester Gould's iconic detective strip in 1978, and Dick Tracy would never be the same again. First of several volume's collecting Collin's masterful yet controversial 15-year run, and includes the stories "Angeltop's Last Stand," "Return of Haf-and-Haf," "Big Boy's Revenge." Art by Rick Fletcher and Pulitzer Prize-winner Dick Locher.

Chester Gould pitched his most legendary character, a dashing and daring detective for the Chicago Tribune's comics page and syndicate in 1931. He used the title "Plainclothes Tracy," but Tribune head General Joseph Medill Patterson renamed him Dick Tracy before giving him a slot in the paper. Modelled in the image of the innovative Sherlock Holmes, the character inspired Gould to create new crime-fighting technology, including the two-way wrist radio.
