    It's more of the same that made the first issue work so well. Not flinching in the face of absurdity one bit. Dick Tracy Forever #2 even ramps up the obscure and weird and the issue works all the better for it. Throwing Nazis, corruption, plotting, scheming, breakouts, heists, and hard-boiled detectives who lead with their fists. Avon Oeming captures the wonder and action of the character every kid should fight to be in the ultimate game of cops and robbers. Read Full Review

    Dick Tracy Forever #2 is a two-fisted detective story that can be hard-hitting while still having a thread of humor. It has the classic feel of old-school tales, and the look is distinctive and striking. Read Full Review

    All of the classic characters, settings, and dialogue are still present, but Oeming's brilliant sense of style makes it feel like an idea that could have been invented yesterday. Read Full Review

    Dick Tracy Forever #2 moves the classic detective further along in the timeline. Time Changes but crime remains the same. The story is again broken up into a couple of vignettes. The first is a simple story that plays off of the mythology surrounding Dick Tracy's 2-way Radio, it's a fun intro and blends right into the second story. 

    The second story follows Dick Tracy as he questions  Broccoli Rabi, an informant about a Nazi plot potentially brewing in the city. It turns out the Nazi's have already infiltrated and are in league with Pruneface and The Brow. 

    Broccoli has a cool design. We also get the appearance of a new Detective by the name of Bricks. He fits right in with Tracy right down to the hat more
