In this third volume of the much-praised Walt & Skeezix reprint series, the domestic side of Gasoline Alley receives full play. An old flame comes to visit Walt, with an eye towards marriage. Meanwhile, Walt pines for Mrs. Blossom, the neighborhood widow. Out of these entanglements, a long engagement and wedding ensue.
As with earlier volumes, this book will have an eighty page introduction featuring many private photographs of the cartoonist Frank King and his family. The introduction delves into the marketing of Gasoline Alley in the 1920s and 1930s, featuring many dolls and toys taken from the personal collection of Chris Ware, the series designer and award-winning cartoonist.
