CRUSHER(Feb 13, PR Newswire) –– Dick Tracy will capitalize on Muhammad's sudden and unexpected cartoon success by adding the prophet to the cast of his daily syndicated strip, says its artist, Dick Locher.
"Muhammad is the biggest name in cartoons right now," said Locher from his home studio in suburban Chicago. "Fortunately he's not copyrighted or trademarked, so I can use him without worrying. In my version, he'll help Tracy out on the occasional case, but there will be times when the police won't be sure if he's truly on their side or just playing them. I think it'll be fun!"
