Dick Tracy is a syndicated newspaper comic strip, which has been running since 1931. Created by Chestor Gould, the strip focuses on the titular detective, a jutting-chinned crusader who has fought gangsters, Nazis, and a vast Rogue's Gallery of grotesques such as Flattop and Pruneface, most of whom were killed in gory fashion.

The strip, which introduced the concept of a two-way wrist television, has been adapted for radio, film serials, television, low-budget movies in the 1940s, and a high-profile 1990 feature film.
