Dick Tracy Meets Rhodent

In this Dick Tracy story from 1959, a man inherits a fortune in coins from a crooked relative, which leads to all sorts of complications. "Rhodent", an unsavory ratlike individual who wants to steal the money, is one of them.









During this period, the strip was designed so the lower part could be cropped off for papers that had less room, so nothing important was in the bottom part of the panels.





"Popsie" is a character from an earlier Dick Tracy story, which I haven't read.



Looks like we haven't gotten to Rhodent yet. Oh well, he'll turn up eventually.
