    Despite the mini series being called Dick Tracy Forever, from what I read the 21st century has turned Tracy into just another cop. Maybe thats the hazard of any Dick Tracy story, that the line between the character and every Sam Spade/Phil Marlowe character archetype is all too thin. Still, Dick Tracy has endured for all these years for a reason and while it may not be perfect, this series is still a fun, light read and an admirable experiment for learning who Dick Tracy becomes depending on what era hes in.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jun 25, 2019

    A fun and entertaining crime adventure story that pays homage to Chester Gould's original creation. The bold and brash art work tells a wonderful story that is only let down in the closing moments. Read Full Review

    Dick Tracy Forever has been an uneven series so far. The art is superb but the problem has been the story structure. The story has either been broken up into vignettes or paced to read in less than 5 minutes. The book will probably be great in a 9.99 trade, but the floppies haven't really felt like a great return on investment.

    That changes with this issue. The story is set current year. Dick Tracy and Tess Trueheart are dealing with their son Junior's coma. He's been diagnosed with an unnamed disease. All seems lost to save their boy aside from a genome altering drug that has been banned and fallen into the black market.

    The drug GEK (Gene Altering Kit) may save the boy, but many of the users become hideously deform more
