Dick Tracy - 8/24/12

Hey, check it out--Aquaman, a murder victim in today's installment of Dick Tracy!

I read Dick Tracy regularly--I've always loved it, but recently it's undergone a creative rejuvenation under the hands of the legendary Joe Staton and Mike Curtis--but I hadn't yet gotten around to reading today's strip. So when newest
F.O.A.M. member Jack Dauer (regular listener and commenter to The Fire and Water Podcast) sent in the link, that made him our newest F.O.A.M.er!

Thanks Jack, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Sweet! I had no idea Staton was on Tracy. I'm going to have to do some reading!

Nice Aqua-shout-out!

Cool! Sad that this version of Arthur Curry is chum now, but still a cool wink at the character!

I'm a huge fan of Dick Tracy from when the master artist Chester Gould drew it. I haven't read the newspaper strips. I'll have to check them out. I applaud them for their clever in-joke.
