The Tracy Twins: Dik Browne's Labor of Love

Generations of children grew up reading the antics of Nicky and Dicky, better known as the Tracy Twins. Drawn for decades by Dik Browne for the Boy Scouts’ Boys’ Life magazine, the strip is as sewn into the fabric of yesteryear’s boyhood as an Eagle Scout patch. Brian Walker chronicles the strip’s development and evolution into an American institution.
