In a world filled with gangsters and petty criminals preying on the innocent, Chester Gould's comic strip detective Dick Tracy was the hard-boiled smackdown.

Here's a bit of trivia that even die-hards may have overlooked.
Sesame Street used to have one hip cat named "Billy Jo Jive" who was a super crime-fighting ace (he said so himself!). In the opening sequence, there is a group of posters and images on the wall that represent his heroes.
Among such crime-fighting stalwarts as Sherlock Holmes, "Bogart", and Shaft there is a comics section tacked up with none other than our guy Tracy!
If you wish to sample Billy Jo's technique, feel free to explore here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb5a2cCxcb0
