    Description

    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-18-44 (Tribune, 1944). The Word War II-era case of Flattop, the hired assassin, is one of the most famous Dick Tracy story arcs, and this daily is from the chase scene in that very storyline. Gould's storytelling was at its peak, and his cinematic angels in each panel are very expressive. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 20" x 6". Light toning, and a missing art correction in Panel 3 has left some glue residue. In Very Good condition. Signed in the last panel.
