These are two characters that would be ripe for a live action period piece detective show. I have often wanted to see Dick Tracy series that really takes its time with the villains (rather than cramming the entire rogues gallery into one film, as Warren Beatty did) and presents Tracy's world in a way that is fantastical but not overly cartoonish. Sandman Mystery Theater was one of my favorite titles of the 90's and its four-issue arcs would be perfect for translation to the small screen. With programs like Boardwalk Empire or the upcoming Los Angeles striking a chord with audiences, perhaps the time is right for the adventures of Wesley Dodds and Diane Belmont.
