It looks like Tracy is going to battle Pengy's brother.

There is also a reference to a Ms. Newmar in the comic dated 19 November 2012. Very interesting indeed!!!

This story started the day after I met Dick Tracy's current artist, Joe Staton, at a comic book show in Akron, Ohio. If I'd known, I would've loved asking him some questions about this storyline!
We thought we'd have to teach our son about the world. Turns out we have to teach the world about our son. They see a boy who cannot speak. We see a miracle who doesn't need words.

This is great stuff! I haven't read newspaper comics in years, but I was always a Dick Tracy fan as a kid. Artist Joe Staton (co-reator of E-Man, past artist on JSA and Doom Patrol, among many others) and writer Mike Curtis are having a ball, resurrecting old characters from the strip's early years -- and even enabling crossovers with other strips. Just before the arc featuring the unnamed Penguin (whose henchmen are named Kane, Sprang and Robinson) and his brother, Tracy crossed paths with Walt Wallet, star of the Gasoline Alley strip.

The Gotham storyline starts with this strip: http://www.gocomics.com/dicktracy/2012/11/17.

Thanks so much for sharing this!
