Walt & Skeezix, 1921-22 (book 1) at The Book Palace

Ref: WAS1921 (Click for larger picture!)



A beautifully produced anthology of the comic strip art of Frank O. King (1883-1969), Gasoline Alley. There is a leisurely introduction, from Jeet Heer, which includes the research notes of Tim Samuelson. Packed with evocative sepia toned photographs & examples of full colour Sunday pages, we are introduced to the main subject, the B&W comic strip series, from 1921-2.

These have never before been compiled in any comprehensive form and this represents a true labour of love. The publisher intends to reprint the entire series, which continued into the 1950's, with an additional volume of earlier pre-Skeezix strips, at some point. For anyone interested in American newspaper strips, this is an essential purchase.
