Merry Christmas Folks!

This new acquisition seems very appropriate for today; it's the 'World of Comic Art' number 3 Winter edition from 1966!
Why is that important?  Well, I am the Winter edition from 1966 also!  This book and I were making our first impressions about the same time.
Plus it has a nice Christmas sentiment, but you probably noticed that already.
Dick Tracy did a lot of 'time outs' for Christmas and wasn't shy about approaching the real reason for the Holiday.  Thanks, Chet for all the warm sentiments over the years.
Being of the Christian faith, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you are happy and healthy no matter what your faith. (or your lack thereof)

Tunnel Vision...

Y'know, I really like the Random Acts of Tracy idea.  Since I have more items to expand on this here's another:
Not being a native New Yorker, I know little of the Freedom Tunnel so here's wiki's version:
"The Freedom Tunnel is the name given by urban explorers, graffiti artists, and a handful of  homeless people to the Amtrak tunnel under Riverside Park in Manhattan, New York City.  It is also the name of the legendary and constantly evolving graffiti pieces that cover the tunnel walls."
That will suffice for us as an into for this piece of Tracy goodness residing on those said walls.
It's from a storyline involving the Mole who first appeared 9-17-41.  Bet THIS Tracy has seen his share of illegal activity.
Y'ever notice that when Tracy is depicted on walls, sidewalks, barroom tables, and the like; he is always the Gould version.  Perhaps even the Fletcher version.  Never the Locher version.  Wonder why that is?  (...he said snarkily!)  If you find one, lemme see it.  I'm curious.

Random Acts of Tracy...

New feature called Random Acts of Tracy.  You'll figure it out as we go:
Found this on the net.
I really don't know what to say about this other than to admire the fact that the creator of it loved Tracy so much as actually make this.
Duck Tracy.

Call to arms!

Oh, to heck with it!  Collecting Tracy is about more than what I have, so when I finally get a good camera I'll post more of my stuff.  In the meantime, to keep you filled with Tracy goodness, I'll post odd items of interest and things that make you go: Ye Gods!
Case in point: who knows if this pic culled from the net is a copyrighted item or not, but it made me laugh.  No lol, though as I hate that term almost as much as the current Tracy strip's storyline.

Regrets, I have a few...

I have come to humbly beg your forgiveness for my lack of posting this past month.  I have been saving to purchase a new camera as my other died a painful death through the deviousness of battery technology.
I have ordered my new camera and it will be here soon.  
And the blog will begin again.
Sorry for the long wait.  I have many more items to show you and hope you stick with me to see what awesome wonderfullness is in store for us all through the magic of the Blog of Tracy!
Stay safe.
