I don't know why I love this so much, but I just do.
The Little Orphan Annie comic strip was cancelled back in 2010. It ended on a cliffhanger with Annie a prisoner of the murderous Butcher of the Balkans. Daddy Warbucks has been searching for her ever since, and this June, he'll hire Dick Tracy to try to find her. Many of the characters from Annie will show up in Dick Tracy. Mike Curtis and Joe Staton took over the Dick Tracy comic strip in 2011, and I hear they've really rejuvenated it. Right now there's a story going on featuring real life cartoonist (and friend of mine) Scott Shaw! Should be fun to see how the crossover is pulled off.
I've seen Annie since I moved stateside, but never sat through all of Dick Tracy. There wasn't much chance to see it when we were still living in Germany (Short version. One Cinema within 10 miles, 1 screen, as it was converted from an opera house or something, and video rental places there rarely stocked more than 5 copies of new movies. Blockbuster's wall-of-new was a shock when we moved here). And now I'm just really not interested. Saw reruns of the old cartoon a much of times.
