Dick Tracy greets a gay couple:
The possibly Asian character (George Tawara) is based on George Takei. Regrettably, the strip doesn't identify Brad as George's husband.
And while this represents progress of a sort, The Mole has been reduced to working as maître d’hôtel at a Lawry's Steakhouse knockoff, at least until Dick Tracy brains him with a garden hoe.
Meanwhile, Gil Thorp is exploring interracial dating, in black and white. Still no romance between Gil and Marty Moon.
We all need to meet the peacock sometimes.
