    Mike Royer Dick Tracy: Big Boy Turns Up the Heat Story Page 7 Original Art (Disney/Audio Action Adventures, 1990). Some fascinating background: This unusual Tracy piece stems indirectly from Chester Gould's classic comic strip -- and directly from Warren Beatty's 1990 movie version. As a consequence, the classic Tracy villains here are modeled after the actors who impersonated them on screen: Madonna Ciccone as Breathless Mahoney, Paul Sorvino as Lips Manlis, William Forsythe as Flattop, and Al Pacino as Big Boy Caprice. Royer is an ideal choice to illustrate the variation on Gould, the comic strips' greatest radical Expressionist, in light of Royer's celebrated 1970s collaborations with Jack Kirby, the comic books' greatest radical Expressionist. The Royer Tracy was published in a package with a dramatized recording on audiocassette. Signed at lower margin. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12.5" x 15". Faint toning. Excellent condition.
