    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Sunday Comic Strip Original dated 8-2-53 (The Chicago Tribune, 1953). America's foremost lawman, Dick Tracy made Jack Webb look like a stand-up comedian. From his razor-sharp chin to his two-way wrist radio, Tracy was always working to make America a safer, better place. Originally a hard-bitten cops-and-robbers strip, the feature grew more and more bizarre as Gould's imagination and his fondness for outre characters was given more latitude. The strip offered here, centers around Tracy getting info on Uncle Canhead. It even has an entry in the Crimestoppers Textbook at the top of the page. With an image area measuring approximately 27" x 18", the piece is constructed, as were the majority of Gould's Sundays, by adhering individual panels to a larger board. In Very Good condition, with foxing on the right side, a few adhesive stains and discoloring to the title stat.
