Dick Tracy Wiki

Glance Magazine was a popular news-and-lifestyle publication in the world of Dick Tracy.

Glance published the first photos of the newborn Sparkle Plenty, which helped the magazine's circulation considerably.

The criminal Hypo used Glance in his robbery schemes. Hypo claimed to be a photographer for the magazine in order to gain access to his wealthy victims' homes. During his criminal endeavors, Hypo encountered the photographer Eddie Johnson, who was later hired by Glance.

The following year, a Glance photographer notified police that the top of a city monument tower was missing. This eventually led to the discovery that the underworld figure Shoulders was still alive and that he had stolen a jewel cache hidden inside the monument by the original designers in India.


  • The name "Glance" was most likely inspired by the real-life magazine Look.
