I have never lost the fannish pleasure of reading Dick Tracy. I have read it all my life, in newspapers and also in comic books. I did this posting in 2010 to share my fascination for a particular sequence with bad guy Flattop Jr. When I read the Harvey Comics reprint of the story I was still a pre-teen, and the images of the murdered girl, Skinny, clinging to her killer’s neck, were very powerful for me. Like the character in the 2006 comic strip, “Crankshaft,” which I also show with the story, these issues of Dick Tracy Monthly have stayed with me all my life.
