Om boka

With one end of a rope around Tracy's neck and the
other end attached to an innocent young boy hanging out of a highrise window,
Chester Gould proves that he can still invent unique death traps for the
sharpjawed detective. The tension and excitement continue throughout the stories
collected in this book, as Tracy and his team are led on one relentless chase
after another. And just when they think they've captured the criminal mastermind
known as "Button," he escapes...and escapes again! Also featured are Button's
sister named Hope Lezz the knifethrowing exvaudevillian
KeenotheGreat a con man named Big Brass, who peddles atomic nose
rings and a seemingly demure grandmother named Florabelle, who dresses up
her longdead brother's skull with a wig, hat, shirt, tie, and cigar...and just
happens to keep a razorsharp guillotine in her basement. Things never slow down
in Dick Tracy Volume 27, which reprints all dailies and Sundays from September
28, 1972 to July 6, 1974.

"Chester Gould
introduced a new hardhitting type of realism [that] marked a radical and
historic departure: the comics were no longer just funny." Jerry Robinson, The
Comics

"This black and white morality
play of Good vs. Evil was famously haunted by its gallery of grotesque and aptly
named villains like Mumbles, the Brow and Flattop. Each of their faces was
literally a "map," a map of hell, indicated by the most peculiar configuration
of lines the artist could manage. What great cartooning...it's time to build new
bookshelves to welcome one of America's singular artistic achievements." Art
Spiegelman

Ongoing series that reprints the
complete comic strips by Chester Gould from 1931 1977 in 29 definitive
volumes.

The adventures of this iconic square-jawed detective fighting a menagerie of grotesque villains remains one of the highlights in the history of not just comics but crime fiction in general.
