Meeting Gruesome[]

Sara Karloff attended the monster movie convention being held at the Locher Auditorium in Dick Tracy's city. The fugitive Gruesome arrived at the convention and attempted to blend in, but became annoyed when a number of people compared his appearance to that of Boris Karloff.

Sara Karloff approached Gruesome and stated that she thought he did NOT resemble her late father. This pleased Gruesome, who asked her permission to write to her from prison. She refused.


  • In real life, Sara Karloff has a friendly relationship with writer Mike Curtis.
