Frank King, Chris Ware, Jeet Heer

Sundays with Walt and Skeezix

On sale date: September 4, 2007

Collected for the first time here are the best of Frank King's early Gasoline Alley Sunday comics, starting from the very first Sunday in 1921, reprinted in the original size and colors.

Frank King's innovations in art, layout and storytelling brought a new warmth and style to the medium at the dawn of the Golden Age of newspaper comic strips. If you are interested in the development of this unique American art form, or simply love beautiful comics, this sumptuous volume is a masterpiece in comic art, and a must for your collection. Like McCay, Feininger, Herriman, and others of that era, King was a graphic innovator. His panoramic layouts, themed styling, and whimsical cartoon conceits explored new artistic methods. But he also had a great knowledge of story and character, presented with a warmth and humanity never seen before in comics, and rarely done as well since. He went beyond the gags and slapstick of his contemporaries to create vignettes of genuinely human characters; showing them relating to each other and, particularly in his Sunday comics, to the world around them.
