designed by Chris Ware
introduction by Jeet Heer
Sunday Press, the publisher of the Little Nemo in Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays collection now presents the best Sunday comics from the first two decades of Frank King’s masterpiece, Gasoline Alley in the same stunning, full size (16" x 21") format. Designed by Chris Ware and with an introduction by Jeet Heer, these wonderful Sunday pages are a beautiful companion to the popular Drawn and Quarterly books that feature the daily Gasoline Alley strips.
This volume is a giant oversize 96 page, heavy duty hardcover with dust jacket that includes a full-sheet cardboard insert replica of a 1920’s Skeezix cut-out toy.
As with Sunday Press's Little Nemo collection, these incredible Sunday pages have been digitally restored to their original colorful brilliance and are reproduced at full size. In addition, the book is filled with images of comics memorabilia and photographs of King’s life. It also includes texts on King’s life and work by journalist Tim Samuels and comics historian/critic Donald Phelps.
