    Description

    Frank King Gasoline Alley Daily Comic Strip Original Art (Chicago Tribune, 1929). Even after he had changed Gasoline Alley from a car enthusiasts' feature to a well-rounded domestic comedy-drama, King raised the occasional reminder of the automotive origins. This stellar example finds freeloader Avery imposing (as usual) on the generosity of easygoing Walt Wallet. King's inscription appears at upper right, dated 1931. No run date is given as to month and date. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 5.75". Light age-toning, with one marginal stain. Excellent condition. From a Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
