67. Unpublished Dick Tracy Bad Guys

Q: I’m looking for an issue that came out in the early to mid eighties. It featured a collection of ultra-shady characters from the Dick Tracy comic books that never made it to print. If I remember correctly, the artist had supposedly created them after a long night of excessive drinking. The characters were so hysterical that to this day, I still laugh out loud whenever I think about them. Would you happen to know which issue that was?

A: The article was called “The Unpublished Enemies of Dick Tracy,” written by John Weidman and Ron Barrett It appeared in the May 1982 (Crime) issue.

    Is there any link to find these pictures? I remember Fart Stinkley and Scrotum Face in that particular Rogue’s Gallery. That was a fantastic selection of drawings!!!

    The premise was that Chester Gould got roaring drunk and submitted these cartoons to the syndicate which turned it down outright. There was a piss fetishist, a fetus, a rotten cracked egg, someone with shit-for-brains… Barrett did a good job of imitating Gould’s style.
