Product Overview

A GENTLE MIRROR HELD UP TO ORDINARY AMERICAN LIFE IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY. Few cartoon strips have this kind of longevity and quality; GASOLINE ALLEY has been with us since 1919. It started as a mild satire on the post WWI "craze" for cars, but it wasn't long before it developed into a quirky family story attracting an audience of more than 30 million readers in 400-plus newspapers. GASOLINE ALLEY, an affectionate portrait of modern living, is remembered for being the first strip to set itself in contemporary American history. The characters of GASOLINE ALLEY have grown up and gone to war, grown old and had grandchildren. This is the exciting inaugural title in a multi-volume series, reprinting the first two years of GASOLINE ALLEY in which Frank King's friendly and nostalgic imagination took shape.
