Good morning™, everyone!
Joe always said he would commit to 10 years and he passed that milestone in the spring. He has made a huge contribution to this strip and I thank him very much for all his hard work, but I know that Shelley is very capable. We have seen her solo work on this strip in the past.
For anyone who doesn’t know all the Team Tracy members, they are from left to right Joe Staton (artist), Shane Fisher (colors, Sunday only), Shelley Pleger (inks and letters), Walter Reimer (Crimestoppers, Hall of Fame, etc.), and Mike Curtis (author).
All the wives and husbands are mentioned. I wonder if Hilarie is retiring from payroll and scheduling, along with her husband.
For those of you who haven’t heard it, there is a fantastic two-hour interview with Joe Staton from last spring, concerning Dick Tracy, Joe’s long career, and possible future projects. The podcaster/interviewer, cartoonist Geoff Grogan, is more enthusiastic about the current Dick Tracy strip than some commenters here, saying “the stuff you’ve been doing is just fantastic, it’s really terrific, I love it, and it’s just gotten better and better over the years.”
