Here’s a typically beautiful example I scanned of a Gasoline Alley Sunday from 1933 by Frank King, with Unca Walt pulling a Calvin’s Dad. A Halloween strip to get you in the mood for next month.
In this wonderful new world of comics reprint books we live in, there are currently a lot of wonderful Gasoline Alley books in print… three Walt and Skeezix books from Drawn and Quarterly collecting the dailies, and one amazing book of Sundays from Sunday Press Books, Sundays With Walt and Skeezix. The strips in the Sunday Press book are printed full size and are eye-bleedingly gorgeous.
There are also some books of earlier, pre-Skeezix, Gasoline Alley strips I haven’t seen yet available at the Spec Productions website.
