Complete Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Vol. 25

Dick Tracy closes out the 1960s by moonlighting—literally! The master sleuth takes a part-time second job as Head of Security and Law Enforcement for Diet Smith’s operations based on the moon. Soon, Tracy learns that an international crime syndicate, the Apparatus, has infiltrated Smith’s organization on the lunar surface.
“Chester Gould’s paragon of avenging normalcy was not your average, tough-guy detective. A unique combination of brawn and brains, he prefigured a whole new breed of scientific sleuths, whose recourse to technical innovations in criminology gave them the edge on grifters and hoods.”—Robert Storr, Dean, Yale University School of Art (from Masters of American Comics)
