31. Juli 2007 Walt & Skeezix (Buch 3)
In this third volume of the much-praised Walt and Skeezix reprint series, the domestic side of "Gasoline Alley "receives full play. An old flame comes to visit Walt, with an eye toward marriage. Meanwhile, Walt pines for Mrs. Blossom, the neighborhood widow. Out of these entanglements, a long engagement and wedding ensue. The eighty-page introduction features many private photographs of the cartoonist Frank King and his family and delves into the marketing of "Gasoline Alley "in the 1920s and 1930s, with many dolls and toys taken from the personal collection of Chris Ware, the series editor and award-winning cartoonist.

"There is a lovely, often wrenching gravity to the strip. King knows how humans as well as cars work, especially toddlers. His unsentimental understanding of their moods and games, matched by Walt's sudden and unquestioned devotion to his adopted son, make this about as affecting a portrait of fatherhood as I've seen.""--The New York Times Book Review""This Chris Ware-designed collection . . . caught even hardcore comics devotees flatfooted with its boundless wonders." "--The Onion"


The domestic side of Gasoline Alley receives full play in a third volume in the reprint series of the comic strip, which describes Walt's encounter with a marriage-minded old flame and his longings for the neighborhood widow, Mrs. Blossom.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Our greatest comic strip? 15. Oktober 2007
Von A. Grossman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Volume 3 of Walt and Skeezix is even better than volumes 1 and 2 and it's hard to get any better than the first two. And Walt gets married and Skeezix gets a mom. So much happens and there is so much of King's wonderful art that this is a must.

Frank King must be one of America's two or three best story tellers and here he is in his prime. His characters are real people - not just comic strip characters. Walt actually lives! We'd all love to know someone like him. And the other members of the cast are also flesh and blood. This can't be said about any other comic strip. And that wonderful art!

For those that get "Gasoline Alley" fever there is another must - a gigantic 16 by 21 inch very heavy hardcover of selected early Sundays. Here you can absorb King's great art and color and the stories are just as great. It IS expensive but well worth the price. Any of the four volumes would be a wonderful gift foe the one you love or for some dear friends - or even yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best of the Three Walt and Skeezix Books 1. Dezember 2007
Von Richard Hill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been a collector of all things Skeezix for several decades. I have everything from Skeezix hankies, shoe boxes and all of the Bisque Dolls from the 1930's. But the one thing that put them all together was Volume Three of Walt and Skeezix. This edition has a very nice introduction to the many products that Frank King authorized to sell from his Gasoline Alley family. This section is lavishly illustrated and helped me as a collector to see for the first time a catalogue of what I have and what I don't have...yet.

The book also boasts the second most exciting event in Gasoline Alley history, the marriage of Uncle Walt. The illustrations are at their zenith and the stories are heart warming and true to life. This is the best of the three volumes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen time travel 18. September 2008
Von Andrew Ice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A wonderful book, beautifully presented.
For various reasons, they don't make comic strips like this anymore. There is something magical and captivating about the world of the Willett's. Once you start reading, it's hard to put down.
It brings to life a long gone time and place. It's amazing how those little squiggles of characters can become so real. Wonderful art, and brilliant writing.
Anyone with even a passing interest in this, will NOT be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The well-designed reissues of classic Gasoline Alley comic strips continue with this third volume 5. August 2009
Von Paul Carrier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This third volume in an ongoing reissue of the late Frank King's Gasoline Alley comic strip is, like both of its predecessors, an absolute joy. "Uncle Walt" Wallet and his adopted son, Skeezix, continue their adventures in "the alley," along with Walt's car-loving pals Doc, Bill, Avery and the rest of the gang.

A classic American comic strip that is justly viewed as one of the greatest strips of all time, Gasoline Alley has been in continuous publication for some 90 years or so, under various artists, and is cherished by devoted fans and comics scholars alike. With this series, it has become much easier for fans of the earlier - some would say more glorious - strips to get their fix.

In "Walt and Skeezix: Book Three," which covers daily strips from 1925 and 1926, the long courtship between Walt, who began the strip as a confirmed bachelor, and Phyllis Blossom finally reaches its inevitable conclusion as the two lovebirds head to the altar.

And in keeping with Gasoline Alley's claim to fame as a strip whose characters age in real time, the irrepressible Skeezix, whom Walt adopted when he found the infant tucked into a basket on his doorstep, progresses from the broken English of a prechooler to the more mature speech of a slightly older boy.

"Walt and Skeezix: Book Three" presents the two-year run of strips in context, with photos of King and his family, an introductory essay by Canadian journalist Jeet Heer, reproductions of early merchandising efforts and an appendix of explanatory notes.

This old gem of a strip, with its gentle humor and meandering ways, is an acquired taste that many newcomers may find hard to take in our fast-paced, techno-crazed 21st century.

But those seeking a heartwarming escape into a world that is full of whimsy and the constant devotion of loving families and close friends will be rewarded by taking a spin through Gasoline Alley in this lovingly conceived volume.

The handsome hardcover books in this series, published by Drawn & Quarterly Books of Montreal, are a must-have for diehards and a must-try for the uninitiated.

Here's hoping this run of reissues continues for a long time to come. (There certainly is plenty of material!) As things stand now, a fourth volume covering daily strips from 1927 and 1928 is scheduled to be released in June 2010.
