    Dick Tracey Dead or Alive #2 is a fun comic. The story is fairly straightforward, and not anything really original, but the characters are fun and the art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Let's hope they manage to weld the classic and modern together better soon. If they can just get out of their own way, this could well be a classic story to match the artwork of this comic. I was really hoping to like this book, which makes its failing all the more glaring to me. Read Full Review

    So after the wonderful setup in issue #1 the premise of the series is laid out here. After Big Boy is arrested all of the assets used to bribe the crooked officers dry up until a new mob boss arrives to consolidate power. 

    The new boss starts funneling money back into the hands of mobsters and the bribes resume causing Tracy to lose support amongst the ranks of the officers. 

    Eventually, Tracy is informed of a conspiracy to turn the police against him and given the advice that he should run. 

    Dick Tracy DOA #2 is another great read. The plot and art seem simple but the story is an example of classic storytelling. The heroes are heroes and the bad guys are clearly bad guys with few exceptions.
