Gasoline Alley made a low-key debut in The Chicago Tribune Syndicate, November 24, 1918. It was the beginning of a journey, which continues to this day.Gasoline Alley is credited as the first comic strip in which the characters age normally, and also being one of the first soap operas in any medium.The strip was created by Frank King with the remit from The Chicago Tribune's publisher, Colonel Robert McCormick, to create a strip to appeal to the new generation of car owners and mechanics. The major characters include:Walt Wallet - a car fanatic, head of the family and the strip's central characterPhyllis Wallet - married Walt June 24, 1926 and died April 26, 2004Skeezix Wallet - Walt's adopted son, found on his doorstep February 14, 1921Avery - Walt's rather cantankerous neighborPert - a rich miser and often the villain of the pieceThe comic reprints from Escamilla Comics are reproduced from actual classic comics, and sometimes reflect the imperfection of books that are decades old.
