    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-16-65 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1965). Gould's "Moon" period found the artist's imagination running wild with impossible combinations of space travel and earthbound crime. No letup on the essential criminal horrors of Dick Tracy, though -- this episode crams an abduction, a murder scene, and a hot-merchandise racket into only four panels. Dynamic use of black-patch gravity and silhouettes, offset by one stark-white patch (lower right), the better to portray an ominously empty floor. (The unseen kidnap victim is Moon Maid, first of a lunar race to arrive on Planet Earth.) Gould's pen-scratchings, testing the line-weight, adorn the right-hand margin. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 16.5" x 5". Light toning, spot-staining, and soiling. The logotype (left) has been crossed out. Otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
    From the Ray Edw Collection.
