Dick Tracy is making his return to comics next April thanks to Archie Comics. The monthly series will be co-written by Archie Comics co-president Alex Segura and Michael Moreci, with art from Thomas Pitilli.

"The term 'dream come true' is a painful cliche, but also extremely accurate in this situation," Segura tells Heat Vision. "I have vivid memories of being completely obsessed with Dick Tracy as a kid when the movie hit, and that sent me back to explore the amazing Chester Gould strips up through Max Allan Collins' superb work and the current, excellent dailies by Mike Curtis and Joe Staton. In my eyes, Tracy is an iconic character on par with Batman and Superman, and it makes perfect sense for another 75-year- old, iconic brand in Archie to be bringing him back to monthly comics."

Dick Tracy first appeared in the Oct. 4, 1931 edition of the Detroit Mirror newspaper created by Chester Gould, who would draw the comic strip until 1977. The character has appeared in five movie serials, six movies, and three television series.

Dick Tracy #1 is set to release April 11.
