1. A heart-warming strip from Frank King’s Gasoline Alley, one of the most recognizable strips in American comics history. King’s strips are known today for their innovations in color and panel layout, as well as for their influence on modern giants such as Chris Ware and Joe Matt, among many more. King’s strip was also notable for it’s real-time continuity, wherein characters actually aged as the strip progressed, a device employed today in such prize-winning strips as Doonesbury and For Better or for Worse.
King’s Gasoline Alley strips have been collected in the recent series of beautiful hardcover volumes, published by Drawn and Quarterly and designed by Chris Ware. These new Walt and Skeezix collections are available for purchase on D+Q’s website.
