Little Orphan Annie characters in Dick Tracy

Joe Staton and Mike Curtis' run on Dick Tracy has given me a lot of material for Volumes 3 and 4. Their very first storyline had a cameo by cabdriver Moe "Shrevvy" Shrevnitz, an agent of the Shadow, and since then we've had ties to Batman, the Spirit, Buckaroo Banzai, Popeye, and many more. Today's strip suggests that Dick will be helping the Asp and Punjab find Little Orphan Annie. This crossoverologist is loving what Staton and Curtis are doing.

  1. I had no idea "Dick Tracy" was running again. Thanks, Sean, for letting me know! I also liked the small crossover with that headline about Barney Google's race horse Spark Plug...... I'll have to go back now and find those others you mentioned!
