Professor Charles “Chuck” Coletta lends his pop culture expertise to a discussion of one of the most popular and influential comic strips of all time, Chester Gould’s Plainclothes Detective Dick Tracy. While Chuck & Frank give an historical overview, the emphasis is on the character’s stories since the 1990 Disney/Buena Vista Pictures film, including The Complete True Hearts and Tommy Guns Trilogy by John Moore & Kyle Baker, Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive by The Allreds & Rich Tommaso, and Dick Tracy Forever by Michael Avon Oeming.
