First Impression: DICK TRACY: DEAD OR ALIVE [2018] #1

by Glenn Snow | July 12th, 2018

DICK TRACY: DEAD OR ALIVE [2018] #1Dick Tracy pre-dates my boyhood immersion in comic books, so I’m very interested to see what this character looks like ‘reimagined for the 21st century through a retro lens.’

“IDW Publishing proudly presents the rebirth of one the most iconic comic-strip heroes of all time, Dick Tracy. The All-American detective just made the biggest collar of his career, and it only cost him his job. But now the honest cop has packed his bags for ‘the city by the lake,’ and its criminals better watch out. Reimagined for the 21st century through a retro lens by the superstar team of Michael Allred, Lee Allred, Rich Tommaso and Laura Allred, Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive is a lock to be the pop-art event of 2018. *Retailers: See your order form for incentive information. Bizarre villains. Crooked cops. Gunfights galore. Cover art and co-written by Eisner Award-winning superstar Michael Allred (Madman, iZombie, Silver Surfer, Batman ’66). Illustrated by Rich Tommaso (Spy Seal, Dry County) with Michael Allred inks. Each issue features a ‘mug shot’ alternate cover by Rich Tommaso. Ask your retailer about the ‘coloring book’ variant cover by Michael Allred. Ask your retailer about the ultra-rare Mike Oeming variant cover.”
