About the Author:

Chester Gould (1900–1985) was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma, the son of a newspaperman and grandson of a circuit-riding preacher. He attended Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State University) before transferring to Northwestern University in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1923. He produced the minor comic strips Fillum Fables and The Radio Catts before striking it big with Dick Tracy in 1931. Originally titled Plainclothes Tracy, the rechristened strip became one of the most successful and lauded comic strips of all time, as well as a media and merchandising sensation. He was twice accorded the “Cartoonist of the Year” Reuben Award by his peers. Gould continued to write and illustrate Dick Tracy until his retirement in 1977.

From Booklist:

These 1944–45 newspaper strips open with the demise of Flattop, perhaps the most notorious of Tracy’s trademark villains, and introduce such other grotesque miscreants as the Brow, Shakey, and Breathless Mahoney (Madonna in the 1990 movie). Far more significant, though, are the first appearances of two characters who would remain long-standing members of the strip’s supporting cast: redneck farmers “B. O.” Plenty and Gravel Gertie. Gould’s distinctively blunt artwork was never more effective than in these wartime installments, which are shockingly violent even by Tracy’s brutal standards. --Gordon Flagg
