Finally, somebody has started publishing the complete Sunday pages of one of my all-time favorite strips, "Gasoline Alley". This begins in 1920, with Walt and the Gasoline Alley gang working on their cars and taking their wives out on country drives (except for the confirmed bachelor Walt), and living in quiet domestic bliss for a couple of months, until a newborn baby is left on Walt's doorstep on Valentine's Day. From then on, the focus was on Walt and Skeezix, as he grew from a babe in swaddling clothes to a busy and mischievous toddler.

I'm ecstatic that Dark Horse has been generous with the size of this book (over 16" tall, nearly the size of a Sunday page). Frank King was the best at taking advantage of the extra real estate, and his Sunday pages eventually became gorgeous examples of the Sunday comic strip at its finest. The volume concludes at the end of 1922, a touching piece with a nostalgic Walt reminiscing with Skeezix how the last nearly two years has changed his life. ( )
