Storylines in volume 5 include "Chief Shellberry,” "Karpse,” "Scardol” and "Whip Chute,” which ran January 1938 through July 1939. Gould was born in Pawnee, and his hard-bitten police detective Dick Tracy is one of the world’s best-known comic-strip characters.

If you want a broader overview of the history of the comic-strip, "The Comics: The Complete Collection,” a Borders exclusive book from Brian Walker, will do just that. The book is a compilation of his two previous books, "The Comics: Before 1945” and "The Comics: Since 1945.” Early color Sunday comic strips like "Flash Gordon” receive full-page reprints; the oversized trim gives readers a feel for what these comic strips looked like.
