The Sunday Project: Volume 1


The Sunday Project: Volume 1


We began The Sunday Project™ series with Volume 1, republishing the first 53 pages that contributed to the daily continuity from Sunday, May 29, 1932 through Sunday, June 4, 1933.  The Sunday pages in Volume 1 also complete the republished canon of the “topper” comic strip, Cigarette Sadie, also by Gould, which appeared beneath many Tracy Sundays published in tabloid-size newspapers.

Through the generosity and assistance of Jean Gould O'Connell, each page in Volume 1 is reprinted from the Sunday pages in Chester Gould's own newsprint archive of the strip. Volume 1 is available for $230.00 as a standalone purchase.

Add To Cart

In honor of the 75th Anniversary of the Dick Tracy comic strip, The Chester Gould – Dick Tracy Museum introduced The Sunday Project™. a full-color reprint series, authentically republishing some 2,431 Dick Tracy Sunday pages in their original color and format for the very first time.

As a practiced designer, Chester Gould plotted with color specifically in mind as his pen and brush labored over his oversized Sunday artwork. Having to accommodate for color in a comic strip on Sunday’s was a new task for then 30 year old Chester Gould, though he soon mastered the illustration of contrasting moods and effects over his twelve blank panels, perfectly combining brilliant color with his trademark use of India ink. For the first time since their original publication, fans and scholars can now study and appreciate Gould’s full-color Sunday pages as they were designed to appear.

Each Sunday page in the series is scanned in high resolution from the original newsprint in either Chester Gould’s own archives or Shel Dorf’s pioneering scrapbooks. Each page is printed on quality #90 stock, measuring 11×17” in size and embossed with the official seal of the Museum for authenticity. Additionally, each Volume includes 4 BONUS pages featuring never-before or rarely published examples of historical material related to Dick Tracy, Chester Gould and their broader legacy.

Shipping is included in the price of each Volume and you can anticipate receiving your order within two weeks of purchase. The timing of subscription shipments will vary.
