Dick Tracy Wiki

Jack the Flipper was a known mugger and killer who operated in Dick Tracy's city. He had dark hair. He had a dog that he often brought with him when he committed crimes.

On a winter night, Jack attempted to rob and assault Jenny Saisquoi. Jack's dog protected the young woman and attacked Jack, killing him. Jack then fell into the snow, where his body was covered.

Jenny attempted to escape and was stranded on an ice floe in the river. Jack's dog was found by Dick Tracy and Sam Catchem, who began to investigate Jenny's disappearance. The dog led them to Jack's body, which was then taken to the morgue where Jack was identified by Igor.

Jenny was later found and rescued. Jack's dog remains at large.


  • The name "Jack the Flipper" is apparently a play on Jack the Ripper, a notorious serial killer who menaced Victorian London.
