Walt & Skeezix: Volume Two collects the Gasoline Alley strips by the great American cartoonist Frank King from 1923-1924. King was the first cartoonist to have his characters age in real time, a landmark conception for comic strips in the early twentieth century. In Volume Two, baby Skeezix is kidnapped and Walt's courtship with Phyllis heats up and cools down. There is a new eighty-page introduction by journalist Jeet Heer.
