Blending the classic elements of the Dick Tracy world (including his iconic villains, supporting cast, and unforgettable watch radio) with a hardboiled and realistic take, DICK TRACY #1 kicks off a fresh and modern approach on the iconic detective that remains true to his rich history.

“Dick Tracy has always been a bucket list character to draw ever since I started reading the strip in my local paper as a kid,” said Brent Schoonover. “Being able to illustrate his bright yellow trench coat and assortment of his amazing rogues gallery that rivals that of any superhero, was a dream come true. Connecting the plot points of the story arc over five issues in my own composition and layout, while honoring the character’s amazing past and bright future, was fun challenge. I can’t wait for people to see this series.”
