Image: Crazy Quilt: Scraps & Panels on Way to Gasoline Alley HC  - Sunday Press Books

Before he began the beloved Gasoline Alley comic strip, Frank King drew ten Sunday features and scores of illustrations and cartoons for the Chicago Tribune. This oversize volume collects the best of all King's work from 1910 to 1918, including the complete run of the phenomenal jam comic Crazy Quilt. Also in this collection are the wildly imaginative stories and layouts of Bobby Make Believe, a Little Nemo tribute, and the basis of all the Sunday fantasy strips with Walt and Skeezix. With an introduction by Jeet Heer and a foreword from Chris Ware.

The year 1964 was a momentous one in the history of Gasoline Alley-it's when Frank King officially handed the baton to Dick Moores. King continued to help plot the strip but it's Moores who takes center stage. More so than any other newspaper strip, Gasoline Alley is renowned for its strict continuity and this is our chance to see Moores-who continued writing and drawing the strip until 1986-make it his own. Forty-plus years earlier, Walt Wallet found baby Skeezix in a basket on his doorstep and in the 1964-1966 strips reproduced in this volume, Skeezix is now middle-aged and has a family of his own. For the first time since they appeared in newspapers fifty years ago, readers can enjoy these classic strips featuring Walt and his wife Phyllis, Skeezix and his wife Nina, Corky, Clovia, Slim, Avery, Mr. Pert, Joel, Rufus, and a whole cast of familiar characters.

Walt & Skeezix: 1931-1932 HC
(Drawn & Quarterly)

The Gasoline Alley gang enters a new decade with this volume: Skeezix moves from childhood to early adolescence and the high spirits of the 1920s give way to the Great Depression of the 1930s. Walt and Phyllis Wallet travel to England, an extended tour that echoes the real life journey taken by cartoonist Frank King and his family in the late 1920s. While his parents are away, Skeezix tries to solve the mystery of an arsonist. Now entering his teens, Skeezix comes to the fore of the strip as an adventurous boy surrounded by a gang of likeminded pals, and Gasoline Alley becomes an influential pillar of teenage-culture.

The Depression grinds into its fourth year. Against this setting, a con artist sets up a storefront in town for Continental Corncob, a fictitious company established to dupe would-be investors. Somehow Walt Wallet and the Gasoline Alley gang are roped into the scheme, with the promise that they could earn steep returns if they purchase shares in the allegedly thriving company. Edited and designed by Chris Ware and featuring an introduction by comics historian Jeet Heer, this volume also includes never-beforeseen photographs and rare archival documents from the private collection of the King family.

Image: Walt Before Skeezix: 1918-1920 HC  - Drawn & Quarterly

Walt Before Skeezix collects the first years of Frank King's beloved comic strip, Gasoline Alley. These comics, produced between 1919 and 1920, focus primarily on Walt Wallet and his friends, as they engage with the then-novel automobile sensation that was sweeping the nation. This period of the newspaper strip is especially fascinating as a historical time capsule, charting a moment in America's past when horses and buggies shared the road with cars, and when the USA was making the transition from a country of rural farmers to an urban, industrialized society. Designed and edited by world-renowned cartoonist Chris Ware (Building Stories). [(W/A) Frank King (CA) Chris Ware]
