About Complete Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy Volume 16
In Volume 16 — reprinting strips from October 25, 1954 through May 13, 1956 — Chester Gould presents an amazing number of memorable characters: grotesques such as the murderous Rughead and a 467-lb. killer named Oodles, health faddist George Ozone and his wild boys named Neki and Hokey, the despicable “Nothing” Yonson, the amoral teenager Joe Period, and the introduction of nightclub photog-turned policewoman Lizz. Plus, for the first time, Gould brings back an old villain: Mumbles, who was thought drowned in 1947. And finally, he introduces what may be his most mature story of the 1950s — starring none other than Flattop Jr.!
