IDW Publishing has provided The Continuum with two 1931 Dick Tracy strips from The Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy, Vol. 1.

The first volume of a multi-year project to re-present Chester Gould's body of work in its entirety, the 352-page collection will be released on Oct. 26 in a 9-1/2" x 7" hardcover-with-dustjacket format. It will cost $29.99.

Vol. 1 will include the five sample strips that Gould used to sell his groundbreaking strip, as well as more than 500 comic strips, encompassing the series' beginning, from October 1931-May 1933. Among these strips are the first appearance of many long-time Dick Tracy characters, such as Tess Trueheart, Junior and Chief Brandon. The first volume features an overview and introduction from consulting editor and longtime Tracy writer Max Allan Collins, as well as an interview between Collins and creator Chester Gould.

Each volume will feature book design from Ashley Wood.

"The Dick Tracy strip was one of the most popular, influential comics of the 20th Century," said Collins, who wrote the Tracy strip from 1977 to 1993. "Young boys in particular were attracted to Chester Gould's crafty mix of violence, humor and melodrama. I know, because I was one of them.

"Chester Gould -- unaware that he was changing America's popular culture forever -- was simply doing his best to make Mom, Dad and the kids fight over who got to see the paper first... and to make sure that whoever did turned to Tracy first."

Scary Godmother returns to Cartoon Network in October with both of the animated specials based on Jill Thompson's characters.

Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktakular will air on Friday, Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

Here's how the network describes the show:

"This hour-long CGI special follows the first trick-or-treating adventure of Hannah Marie, a young girl whose older, meaner cousin babysits her one dark Halloween night. Hannah's cousin cooks up a scheme to frighten her, but the scheme backfires when Hannah gets help from her Scary Godmother and her quirky monster friends."

Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy will air on Friday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m.

Here's how the network describes the show:

"Monster-phobic Jimmy hopes that getting rid of candy and costumes will put an end to Halloween. Scary Godmother and her creepy pals, the Fright Sight Gang, will have seen their last Halloween if Jimmy succeeds in erasing the day he despises most from the calendar. Unless Hannah can stop him, everything creepy, weird and spooky will vanish forever."

Additional broadcasts of both specials are likely but have yet to be announced by Cartoon Network.
