Yikes…looks like that’s the end of Harkin Farley. Before we get any doubters in the audience piping up, let’s confirm the fact that, yes, he’s dead as a doornail and he ain’t coming back (this comic has a pretty firm rule about not resurrecting dead characters).

I’ve always liked the “nobody’s safe” aspect in comics like Dick Tracy, and almost anyone can wind up in a grisly end in this story. After all, when’s the last time you really cared when a DC/Marvel character went kaput (and came back two months later)?
