The Complete Dick Tracy Volume 20 contains the strips written and drawn by Chester Gould originally published in newspapers between the dates February 20th, 1961 and August 26th, 1962.

It includes the following storylines:

This volume also includes supplemental material including the essay "Fate Does Funny Things" by Max Allan Collins and "Echoes" by Jeff Kersten, which explores the production of the UPA "Dick Tracy" animated cartoons.

This volume also includes the seventh (sixth) entry in the Dick Tracy Family Album & Mug Shot Files series.


  • The final strip included in this volume (from August 26th, 1962) features the first appearance of the Space Coupe.
    • This volume is somewhat shorter than the previous collections in this series, possibly in an attempt to accommodate readers who do not wish to read the subsequent stories that marked a radical shift in the strip's tone to the Moon Period.
  • This volume includes a full reproduction of the strip from Sunday, February 28th, 1960, which had been mis-printed in the previous volume.
