Dick Tracy by Mike Curtis and Shelley Pleger for February 25, 2018

    To leave the lake for murder’s sake is just the Tracy way

    Serve and protect. Deduce. Detect. Another Gumshoe day.

    Look to see on ice cold gurney Stagg’s corpse so pale and still

    The aftermath of Fugu fish. A feast before a kill.

    Marty knows what violence sows. He sees the aftermath

    Bodies maimed and torn apart when in the gun-spray’s path.

    Poison is a tricky case. Accidental or intention?

    With Sam and Tracy on the case there’s bound to be prevention

    Of repeated homicide. These Detectives know their stuff

    Calm, cool, and collected, yet we know they can play rough.

    Ghost Pepper draws suspicion, even though he’s served his time

    Coincidence convenient, Simon’s death could be a crime.

    The boys they have some questions, although Ghost would like to fade

    Pierre the Chef could take the fall and wind up in the shade.

    Ghost is rattled and quite annoyed

    Tracy should know he can’t be toyed

    Time is wasting there’s much to do

    Prepare to serve some Wabbit stew

    Pierre’s the one to get it done

    The preparation’s half the fun

    He not only cooks he does tricks day and night

    Like the spoon that will move from his left to his right

    Faster than a jet or even a deer

    Or the sadness to learn that our Gweedo’s not here

    We’ll know soon enough if the meal is the last

    If the powers that be send him off with a blast

    Good morning™, future banquetters at the Winrock!

    Ghost is doing a poor job of acting innocent, if you ask me.

    Did the “Popeye” day count as this year’s crossover?

    Regarding Gweedo, he has been trying to post here and on other GoComics boards. Here’s his most recent attempt to post here:

    Someone suggested going to Susan Sunshine for an address to Go Comics admin. Anyone know where Susan Sunshine hangs out? (As in, which comics?)

    It’s a safe deposit box because it’s locked in a safe, not a safety deposit box.

    I lament Gweedo’s absence with this tossed off verse

    Could not do any harm or make matters much worse.

    With the best of intentions now take up the pen

    To scribble a rhyme swearing Gweedo must win.

    A serrano pepper in his honor devoured

    Walked the plank boldly, neither whiner nor coward.

    Unlike the foul trolls who deserve what they get

    Gweedo’s a mensch who brings smiles with wit.

    Brilliant move throwing Dicko out. I;m sure that would raise suspicion

    Pierre “blank stare” is a chef who keeps his nose in the dishes, in the kitchen.

    Ghost Pepper is a fish of a different color, and smell. He wants no surprises at the classy Winrock banquet?

    Well, okay! Surprise is guaranteed! I GAH-ron-tee you!

    I wonder if it’s legal to have a DC character, Simon Stagg, in a Dick Tracy comic. We’ve seen crossovers in the past, including Oliver Warbucks, the Asp, Punjab, Orphan Annie, and Hank the editor at Brenda Starr’s Flash, but they’re published by King Features Syndicate, same as Tracy. I’ve been unable to find any legal connection with DC, other than that DC once published a limited edition of Dick Tracy comics.
