Walt & Skeezix: 1929-1930 (Volume Five)

Frank King


"Frank King's Gasoline Alley may be the best syndicated comic strip ever. Walt & Skeezix lovingly collects two year's worth of the strip."-Playboy

"There is a lovely, often wrenching gravity to the strip. King knows how humans as well as cars work, especially toddlers. His unsentimental understanding of their moods and games, matched by Walt's sudden and unquestioned devotion to his adopted son, make this about as affecting a portrait of fatherhood as I've seen, not least because Skeezix grows. This is the great innovation and dark curse of 'Gasoline Alley': the characters age."-The New York Times Book Review

"This Chris Ware-designed collection...caught even hardcore comics devotees flatfooted with its boundless wonders"-The Onion
