"Strip" Gear
StripGear

First Appearance:

1966

Created By:

Chester Gould

The criminal known as "Strip" Gear (real name unrevealed) was a former burlesque dancer who turned to a life of crime. She was an attractive woman with shoulder-length light-colored hair and a curvaceous figure.

Gear and her gang robbed an armored car and hid the stolen goods in a trailer. They then attempted to escape disguised as a newlywed couple.

The added weight of the trailer and the stolen material inside proved to be too taxing for Gear's poorly-maintained vehicle, and she lost speed while attempting to drive up a steep grade. This enabled Dick Tracy and Sam Catchem to apprehend her and her accomplice.

NotesEdit

  • "Strip" Gear appeared in a print ad that Chester Gould produced for Ford Autolite auto parts in 1966. She has not appeared in the actual Dick Tracy comic strip.
