    Remember Dick Tracy on the 1971-1973 Archie's TV Funnies?

    Archie may have lost the Sega Sonic rights to IDW, but they gained Dick Tracy?

    I like the sound of a rebooted DT comic, especially if it features starting days as a detective.

    Wow. They should’ve kept better tabs on their licensing deals. That’s disappointing.

    Archie can't hold a license for the life of them, it seems.

    Just recently, Hermes Press has signed to do a graphic novel of Dick Tracy of what the Archie reboot of Mr. Tracy might have been with a different art team. The graphic novel is slated to be released in late Summer 2019 as long as it doesn't suffer another licencing dispute like Archie did in trying to reboot Dick Tracy in comic books.

    Edit: Oop Nevermind.

    Though again, it is nice to see another Dick Tracy book again
