MEET THE CREATORS!
“The world of Dick Tracy is rife with complex characters, twisted motives, and dangerous corners – and we really want to lean into the essence of what Chester Gould created without trying to imitate Dick Tracy’s creator. What Michael, Geraldo, Chantelle, and I are cooking up is a very noir and hardboiled take using all the ingredients fans are familiar with – hopefully creating something that feels fresh and vibrant while honoring what’s come before. We don’t just want to tell a fun Dick Tracy story – we want to craft a great crime saga, too. Thanks for joining us on this ride.”
– Writer, Alex Segura
“Our goal in making a new Dick Tracy comic isn’t to be kitsch or try to recapture what Chester Gould did so masterfully–I can’t even presume to have that gift. Instead, we want to take the essence of what makes Tracy work and recalibrate it for both new and audiences alike. Dick Tracy is a crime comic–that’s its roots. It’s populated with colorful and dangerous villains, takes place in a seedy city–we cherish that feel and tone, much like we cherish the works that Dick Tracy itself inspired (Criminal, LA Confidential, things like that), and it’s due time that this terrific story gets the treatment it deserves.”
– Writer, Michael Moreci
“This isn’t your grandfather’s Dick Tracy—though it will absolutely have all the elements you know and love. Having the opportunity to introduce Chester Gould’s beloved character to a whole new generation of readers is an honor, and Alex, Michael, and Geraldo are absolutely the creators to bring Dick Tracy, Tess Trueheart, and all your favorite villains into the twenty-first century.”
– Creative Consultant, Chantelle Osman
