Good morning™, everyone!
Cogs in a case. It seems that Tracy is really after Art Dekko and is less worried that he can’t arrest Paul Chandler. Tracy’s not give details to Wunbrow, but Wunbrow is back to work and out of there, anyway.
Sorry, this dialog is really lame, as is this current story.
Did we learn anything today?
Did today’s strip advance the story in any way??
What did Tracy accomplish by rushing over that he couldn’t do over the phone?
Talk about wasting taxpayer money!
Tracy and Wunbrow have a smirk-off in Panel 2.
Good morning™, departing colleagues !
Some one predicted this scene awhile back. So now back to Tracyville and to get Blaze re involved in nailing (F)Art Dekko.
P.3. Does Tracy’s face have a monkeyish theme going ? LOL !
(☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞ Just got it “Wunbrow”…lol. Just the other day I was thinking “what kind of name is that?”
Kudos to Mike and Shelley for stuff which Tracy and MCU has to deal with but they need dialogue coaches. For the past two days, I felt like I was watching a Vitamin Flintheart production. If I was a paying customer, I’d want my money back.
Stop right there! Some unanswered questions remain such as will the remains of Chandler be shipped to Tracy land and the autospy take place there? Is Sam and the rest of MCU going to get a search warrant for Paul’s residence? Art was obsessed on eliminating the man, too bad he did not extend the obession to making sure no evidence to link him and Paul was left lying around. No problem! 21st century technology was used, cell phones, text messages and cash apps.
Who is investigating Paul’s death ? Apparently Dick has a person of interest !!!
Was Wunbrow investigating the recent surge in illegal aliens in Florida when Paul floated in ?
Fine art toady, and don’t fret, Tracy will tie it all together in the end!
NEWSFLASH!!! DICK TRACY HIRES ELMER FUDD TO BE HIS VOICE COACH!!! MORE AT ELEVEN!!!
Why did we need to bring Wunbrow up from Cuba for this? Was his presence relevant to this storyline (as I suspected when I thought he might be on the trail of a Cuban hit man) or a pointless cameo?
Tracy needed to learn what happened to Paul. It would have made sense to alert the Panama City police and ask them to forward information to Tracy. (Where Paul was staying and anything suspicious being reported.) Tracy would have learned, “He didn’t return to his hotel. All his belongings are still there, but he is missing.” Followed a couple days later by the report of the corpse. It would have made sense. But that wouldn’t have required a minor character being taken off the shelf and dusted off for a cameo. And the Panama City police might not have intuitively known that the killed was waiting for Paul.
Nicely recapped. Now Catch that bad guy
Now Wunbrow can go ahead with his search for enemies of the Cuban dictatorship.
OK ? Where is Sam ?
Paul’s bank accounts are empty now that his identification and credit card information was stolen at the hotel so many more ‘Paul Chandlers’ are flooding into the United States from the Banana Republic of Miami !!!
Dick Tracy is really in Florida to investigate Election fraud and found that thousands of ‘Paul Chandlers’ voted in the Florida Elections after Paul’s identification and credit card information was stolen at the hotel !!!
I hope Tracy isn’t in Florida to probe into election fraud. Too many members of the GOP would be in jail if he did, l think.
Tracy’s hat has gotten smaller, and Shelley forgoes the faux bows.
Do cases have cogs?
Has the ME checked for paint flecks under Chandler’s fingernails?
Doesn’t Wunbar multitask like all real life police investigators? Shouldn’t Tracy, and, the squad?
“Someone’s been putting counterfeit cod fish flavored gumballs in the local candy shops. It’s not like I get big time crimes like SOME people. Not that I’m jealous, but watch your speed driving to the airport, Mr. BIG SHOT!”
INSANELY OT: Got that kids’ book I’ve wanted to do for years suddenly dropped into my frontal lobes. Young on-the-cheap detective with a small, one-winged dragon for a partner. Inspired by an image I got while tinkering with Midjourney. Been too long since I last wrote a comedy project.
At least we got to see Wunbrown in this strip!!
@avdnger09 – Well said!
1-DT: The body in the morgue had much shorter hair than this Paul Chandler fellow pictured here so, ipso facto, the body is NOT Paul Chandler. Way to waste my time, Wunbrow!
2-WUNBROW: He might’ve gotten a haircut. DT: chuckle You amateur sleuths are so cute with your silly theories!
3-WUNBROW: Well, who am I to question the great Dick Tracy? Hasta la vista, amigo.
DT: Yes indeed – who ARE you and why did I even come to this hot humid hellhole???
WUNBROW: I believe you were most interested in my search for the most prolific serial killer to ever live – GARAGE MAN and how I believe I am about to finish his reign of terror.
DT: Oh. Yeah. Next time maybe. Don’t wanna miss my flight. See ya! Don’t take any wooden pesos! WUNBROW: I am not Mexican. DT: Sure. Whatever you say…
Maybe Wunbrow has heard something about that painting that Tracy doesn’t know yet…
I am under the impression that the 2/18 strip was censored by the folks in charge. With the crazy stuff going on in the world, someone decides that a comic strip is more harmfull than the stuff on the evening news. I think you should let your readers be the ones who make that call.
I’m sorry to hear about Paul. He seemed like an O.K. guy.
The Talking Heads, Tracy and Wunbrow, recapitulate the status of the story. Tracy seems to have switched from his trademark yellow fedora to a yellow pork pie (with that very narrow brim mirroring the very narrow lapels popular in the late ’50s (I should know; I still have my pork pie, and there are some old narrow lapels in my closet!)*.
Advancement of story: zero; but that’s okay for a Saturday summation strip….
*If anyone cares, a picture of me and my pork pie and narrow lapels in 1960 exists at my page over on that social networking site which shall not be named.
