Dick Tracy puts a few slugs into a racketeer in this classic Tracy scenario titled "Through the Hand".

The ink over graphite on Bristol board image area measures 16.5" x .5". There is moderate toning, pinholes, marginal notes, and a few small stains. A modern type replacement paste-up is in the third panel. Signed and inscribed "To the boys at Hoboken Y.M.C.A. with best wishes, Chester Gould" at the upper right. The piece is in Very Good condition.
