how quickly and how convenient…
Good morning™, everyone!
Tracy is on the scene and he has spotted them parked illegally. Apparently, Flattop has heard of Tracy, even if Tracy has never heard of Flattop.
Ah, Detection By Coincidence! A Tracy Tradition™.
Dick’s fedora has its brim snapped down and crown less creased than usual. Maybe his memory—or mine—is fuzzy on these fine points from way back,,,when exactly i# this? Shortly after Patten became hus partner?
“No public parking in front the bank” … but several other strips like yesterday’s showed cars parked in front of the bank. The inconsistency gremlin strikes again.
No Floyd, SPENCER Tracy
Multi-tasking! Rob the bank and get Tracy with one stop! Save gas!
I like the bank tellers sweaty head giving up the cash!
I’m waiting to see how this ties into the Wolfe storyline.
I know when this strip originated the Tommy Gun was the thing but they should update the weaponry.
what are the odds?
…….cribbin’ again from “The Flintstones”: “It ain’t Bridgett E. Bardot!”
Flattop, with your distinctive shape, why bother with a mask?
Oh , wiseguy huh ?
No, BOB Tracy, boy litterbug and journeyman exorcist/caterer.
‘For A HECK Of A Meal, We’re The Real Gone Deal’ (No checks accepted)
“Darn those bank robbers. Always parking illegally.”
I mean, I guess this is a classic Hollywood MO for a bank robbery. Maybe it was actually typical. I would think though that if I were going to rob a bank, I would have a more covert getaway planned.
Is “dang” the toughest word that criminals in Tracyville can think of? It seems like a lot of criminals uses it. Not even a grawlix.
Well at least Tracyville has “soft spoken” crooks.
why are their guns so tiny?
Again, Mike insists on treating Tracy’s coat as if it were some sort of superhero uniform. That was never Chester Gould’s intention. Within the strip, the characters are supposed to see Tracy’s coat as a quality camels hair trench coat (Feb 14 & 15, 1947). This silly “Oh, look! A yellow coat – it must be Dick Tracy!” business ruins the idea of Tracy as a detective in plain clothes, especially in the earlier days when this story is supposed to be taking place.
“Wiseguy”…Tracy doesn’t know how right he is.
No one’s going to recognize Flattop with that handkerchief on his face….lol…
Nice rendition of the tommy gun. At that angle even. Good job Shelly!

2.)“And I am Colonel Puddy Tat.General Tweety Pie has been asking about you!”
FORWARD MARCH HARE—1953
Probably IS Tracy,but I’m wondering why his face is hidden.Surprise coming?
It’s one thing to park in front of a bank.Another to park there with the motor running.And a guy at the wheel.
And in real life,have any of YOU ever owned a purple handkerchief?
1-DT: That fat guy in the driver’s seat… NERO? WOWZER! A TWOFER! I solve a case AND get to write a parking ticket!
2-ED: Hey. It looks like Nero is getting a parking ticket from somebody in a yellow trench coat. Is that something regular citizens can do in this town? BLOWSMOKE: THAT’S TRACY YOU IDIOT!
3-FLATHEAD FOURCYLINDER: Tracy? And he doesn’t know we’re in here armed to the teeth? Well, won’t this be easy! Fish in a barrel! Easy peesey, give my lemon a squeazy! NOTHING CAN POSSIBLY PREVENT ME FROM CARRYING OUT THIS CONTRACTED HIT! Here Teller – keep this cash. I’m about to make a lot more money for the cost of a single bullet! GOOD RIDDANCE, TRACY! I’ll be almost embarrassed to take Zeck’s money! Have I mentioned how easy this is going to be???
Uh, Flattop? Is that mask really hiding your identity?
SOBBING IN THE CORNER OT: SO, I’m getting auditions or the audio of the new book, and so far ALL have been from overseas and had accents. I believe one was Slavik but I couldn’t follow the read.
Today’s was a bit on the Carnaby Street side. I mean, smooth read, but I have trouble imagining her handling the 5-6 fights and monster scenarios in the book.
The getaway driver will croak.He’s the only one who doesn’t have a lifetime contract.
You know what’s comical about this comic? Flattop is wearing a mask, but his flat top is in full view. Fat lot of good that mask is doing in hiding his identity!
Somebody in Mr. Zeck’s employ did not do their homework. How was Blow and Flattop to know there is no public parking in front of the bank? They are from out-of-town.
Blowtop wanted to get money (Federal Bank) did not plan on crossing paths with cops. And when crooks cross paths with Dick Tracy, their lives are never the same.
Itsy-bitsy, teeny-weenie barrel on that pistola, don’cha think?
Let’s go Tracy! Fill their bellys with hot lead!
Tracy was already well enough known to the Underworld that the mere sight of the Famous Yellow Trenchcoat put the fear of the Law into the gang! Ed, a lefty unless just momentarily transferring his pistol while holding the door with his right; Blowtop with his tommygun; and the indisguisable Flattop collecting the cash behind the counter from the sweaty bank employee are all primed to take a powder ASAP.
And Tracy doesn’t even yet know there is a crime in progress! He thinks the putative getaway car is just some parking violation. —And what’s with his fedora, without its snapped-brim (front down, back up)?
It’s a darn good thing nobody can recognize Flat Top by his.. flat top.
