    There's plenty of grit hidden within the pages of this book " characters killed, brutal crime lords orchestrating the framing of a good cop, rampant corruption, all under the guise of a colorful romp through a city seemingly populated with criminals and cops. Tracy's sarcastic quips and sardonic asides contrast nicely with the colorful, exaggerated artwork. There's the introduction of a support team for Tracy, who will no doubt supply kooky gadgets and lots of fun storylines in the future. And that's the watchword here: fun. Get out and get it, Dick Tracy: Dead or Alive #3 will leave you feeling more alive than dead. Read Full Review

    This issue ramps up the action and violence and we get some answers behind the "Big Bads" plot. Dick Tracy actually guns down a couple bad guy's this issue. Both instances raised my eyebrows because to this point there have been a lot of threats but no real casualties. Dick Tracy does not play aroun more
