Crazy Quilt: Scraps and Panels on the Way to Gasoline Alley

On sale date: November 7, 2017

Dive into this collection of rarely seen material that takes a new look at one of the great masters of American comics, giving insight into a developing artist and greater understanding of his inspiration to the generations that followed.

Gasoline Alley is considered one of the greatest achievements in 20th century comic strips. But leading up to his most famous work, Frank King wrote and drew over a dozen other comic strips and features, perfecting the art and storytelling that would lead to Walt and Skeezix and their extended family. This seminal work is filled with the standard slapstick, action, and wordplay seen in other comics of the period, but with a style and feeling that is distinctively Frank King. Included in this volume is the complete run of the incredible jam comic, Crazy Quilt, along with the anarchic Motorcycle Mike and King’s wondrous daydreamer, Bobby Make-Believe.
