Archie Comics’ attempt to revive Dick Tracy with the creative team of Alex Segura, Michael Moreci, and Thomas Pitilli was short-lived. So short-lived, it was canceled before it was even published, and a week after it was announced, due to “licensing error.” Perhaps this next attempt will fare better? Rich Tommaso announced on Instagram that he’ll be teaming with Mike, Lee, and Laura Allred for a Dick Tracy revival at IDW, as first reported by Comics Beat.
