Some more from his infamous rogue gallery...

Putty Puss was always cool. He could shape his face to look like anyone, which sort of made him the ultimate Dick Tracy villain.

What's with Spots? It looks like he has no eyes.

That's how he was drawn in the original comic.  Weird, huh?

Yes, very weird. Of course from 
what I understand that was how Chester Gould drew 
a lot of the DT villians.

Yes, "Putty Puss" is pretty good, I agree. Enabled me to overlook the inferior art and pacing of Dick Tracy's postGould stories. I've NO idea of how the strip is doing: The Daily News dropped it years ago !

"Spots" was NEVER shown face on, always 3/4 at most. He tried (1) to get the inheritance of an orphaned hawaiian girl by passing his own wife off as a missing relative, and (2) blackmailing a woman who forced her daughter to abandon her mutant baby son.That baby figured in a few stories before Gould just -forgot about him, AND his mutant super-strength !

Still, there are several stories I haven't seen to completion, and I have only teasing fragments of memories about. They're from the late 50's and early 60's.
