Notes[edit | edit source]
- The book includes a disclaimer acknowledging the presence of racial caricatures in the strips and states that they are "reprinted without alteration for historical reference".
- With this volume, IDW altered the format of their Dick Tracy collections. The books became larger, allowing for 3 daily strips to be printed per page, while the previous volumes only had 2 per page. A full-color image of a well-known villain appears on the cover, with black-and-white images of the other villains and prominent supporting characters on the back. The beginning of the books now feature a re-cap of the previous book's storylines.
