The Kidnapping Edit

The Forger Edit

As a show of gratitude, John Waldorf presented Dick Tracy with $50,000 in bonds. However, Tracy quickly recognized the bonds as forgeries. This led Tracy to investigate Alec Penn, from whom Waldorf had acquired the bonds.

Waldorf remained in contact with Tracy and later helped rescue him from a lion's den where Tracy and Pat Patton had been trapped by Alec Penn.
