  1. 3 days ago on Dick Tracy

    In the 1930s and ‘40s, Germany had a secret police organization called the Gestapo. As a finger on the left hand of the reigning political party, they operated on paranoia derived from baseless prejudice. Common tactics included abuse of law enforcement authority and intimidation, the knock in the night for surprise interrogations, turning people against each other – even their own families, and hunting people down on flimsy or false pretenses to lock them up or kill them simply for how they were born. The Gestapo didn’t even need a reason like evidence of a crime committed to go after someone; if they predetermined that you were a problem, even if it was just because you were born to the wrong family, then you became their target… Good thing Dick Tracy is nothing like that, right?

    Never mind the hair, look at those gigantic fingers. Her right thumb is past the trigger guard! (Her left thumb is also wrapped behind the weapon, which is a great grip for someone who wants to injure their left thumb and prevent their weapon from cycling properly.)

    Criminals truly are fiends. How dare they interrupt the big chicken nugget brand promotional event at the antique show and selfishly abscond with the collected musings of Chairman Mao? I hope even more deus ex machina policewomen teleport into the story out of nowhere to arrest them even harder!

    …What?

    Why didn’t we get a similar taunt(?) from our criminal genius at the bank? “I could have worked a legitimate job to earn money, but armed robbery is quicker. – Gameboy”

    I forgot Dick was recounting this story to Sam. I think Mike Curtis forgot for a while as well, given all that stuff from the villains’ perspectives.

    So that’s it, then? It seems like most people are just glad it’s over and something else is going to start, but honestly this wasn’t too different from the usual. In fact, there were some atypical bright spots: you had a villain who heard the police were looking into his scheme and did NOT immediately panic and sabotage himself, and even more shockingly Dick Tracy did something resembling investigative work! Then the same thing as always happened: set-up goes nowhere, non sequitur pew-pew-pew happens, arbitrary plot resolution disconnected from any positive actions by the protagonists happens, the end. The whole thing was just another drawn-out self-indulgent memberberry binge.

    Shelley has drawn some terrible firearms previously, but this one looks fine to me. My only note would be the seeming lack of rear sights, but that’s forgivable due to the angle.

    Pete drove all the way from another city just to help a professional writer complete a short paragraph about herself? This is onanistic and stupid even by Batiuk standards.

    Since I’ve been pretty critical of Pleger’s past depictions of absurdly non-functional firearms, it’s only fair to say that today’s weapon is much, much better, and the overall art direction is terrific.

    “And your role in this ‘DaVinci job’ was what, exactly?”

    “To know just enough information about the plan to feed Dick Tracy another effortless win while being detached enough from the crime to retain audience sympathy. Honestly, I thought it was kind of strange that Art felt the team needed a useless traitor for the job, but he just kept saying he didn’t get this far by fostering loyalty or common sense, so what can you do?”
