By Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 24, 2018 From The Stop Button

Dick Tracy starts reasonably strong, which one forgets as the serial plods through the near five hours of its fifteen chapters.

Except they also all think the Spider is wearing a disguise, implying the club foot is a part of that disgui... Read full article

By Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 18, 2018 From The Stop Button

The Trail of the Spider is the clip chapter. After the current winner for laziest cliffhanger resolve in the serial?Ralph Byrd turns a steering wheel to get out of danger?Byrd and the cast get together with three new characters to hear all about the Spider. Although Byrd?s been hunting the Spider Ga... Read full article
