The publisher of the Little Nemo in Slumberland-Splendid Sundays collection presents the best Sunday comics from the first two decades of Frank King's masterpiece, Gasoline Alley. Just like our earlier Little Nemo collection, these incredible comic strip pages have been digitally restored to their original colorful brilliance and are reproduced at full size. The book is filled with images of comics memorabilia and photographs of King's life. Magnificently designed by Chris Ware and with an introduction by Jeet Heer, this book is an essential part of any comic strip library. The collection also includes writings by journalist Tim Samuels and comics historian/critic Donald Phelps. With the new series of Drawn and Quarterly "Walt and Skeezix" daily comics reprints, and a strong presence in the recent Masters of American Comics exhibition, Frank King is being given the long-overdue credit he deserves as a true innovator in comics - in graphic style and design as well as in story and character.
