From the same 1935 Sunday section as the ads in my previous post, it's Chet Gould's Dick Tracy. Dig that classic profile! One of my favorite comic strips -- though, truth be told, I prefer the '40s and '50s -- great villains, great stories -- and really cool cartooning! Thankfully, we're currently getting a classy hardcover reprint series of the strip -- just now getting to the really good stuff from the mid '40s. I had the pleasure of visiting Chet at his Woodstock, Illinois digs in the '70s -- thanks to my pal Max Collins, who'd just taken over the writing of the feature upon Chet's retirement.
