Dick Locher has died. He worked on DICK TRACY as far back as the late fifties and would work on it again after becoming a well known political cartoonist, finally retiring a few years ago. Locher also worked on THE GRAVIES, a companion strip run with DICK TRACY. He is credited as "Dick" on some of the strips, as seen here.
I believe the crow seen in this strip also appeared in DICK TRACY during this period, although I have not read those comics in some time and do not remember how it figured in the story.

The book THE ART OF DISGUISE says on the cover that it's by Dick Tracy.
