New Dick Tracy team get positive nod

Atlanta Magazine delves into the rebirth of Dick Tracy under the new team Joe Staton and writer Mike Curtis.

For starters, the art is crisp and creative with a strong visual homage to “Tracy” creator Chester Gould’s heyday in the strip in the 1940s and 1950s while the writing is fast-paced and loaded with wit and winks to longtime readers. Alas, while the strip isn’t widely carried in newspapers these days, fans can subscribe to “Dick Tracy” at comics sites like Gocomics.com and have the strip emailed daily to them.

The team of Staton and Curtis is doing an outstanding job on Dick Tracy. Their approach is respectful of the strip’s heritage, but the stories and art are modern. I look forward to reading it every day to see what is going to happen next!
