Dick Tracy

Dick Tracy introduced violence — blunt, ironic, and retributional violence — to the comics page. The quintissential Dick Tracy line about his crimefighting tactics? “I’m going to shoot first and investigate later!” The strip is also notable for its introduction of scientific detection to comics, a theme that Gould continued to exploit well into the 1960s. And now, nearly 80 years after the first Tracy strips, Gould’s massive body of work is being collected in its entirety.
