Dick Tracy Excerpts

In the late 70s, early 1980s, My pops bought an awesome Dick Tracy shadowbox art thingy. Not sure what to call it. Chrome frame, colorful background with a painted foreground glass thingy. It lived in the bathroom at my home in east Hollywood for many years until I eventually conned him into giving it to me for my first apartment. It’s got a few seemingly disjointed Dick Tracy comics in the background, with a simple ultra close-up shot of Dick Tracy in the foreground talking into his awesome wrist communicator.





Fong Lee on every tongue, eh?

    Fong Lee is chaming the pants off me with his dreamy far-off look, white chompers, and spiffy outfit.

    Did you ever look behind the foreground Dick Tracy to see what the comics say there? If it’s more Fong Lee, I’m coming over right now.

    Fong Lee is my favorite. I wonder what Pantone color his yellow skin is. Sorry, that’s a geek question. A printing geek question. How did they ever get away with making him that yellow? And where is his nose?
