Dick Tracy -- September 19, 2015

Feature Books started in 1937.  Each issue was devoted to a single comic strip character.  Chester Gould created Dick Tracy in 1931.  The stories became famous for colorful criminals and lots of violence.  By the time I read it in the San Francisco Chronicle, there were strange stories set on the Moon with all sorts of odd technology.  I remember a story about a mummified corpse that particularly disturbed me.  A room in a neighbor's attic reminded me of the setting of that episode.
