    Description

    Frank King Gasoline Alley Daily Comic Strip Christmas Theme Original Art dated 12-23-57 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1957). Launched in 1918 as an automotive feature, Gasoline Alley persists today as the longest-running American comic strip. This episode finds Skeezix Wallet and his household snowbound as Christmas approaches. Skeezix's wife, Nina, is née Nina Clock. Her father is called Grandfather Clock. King, the originator and the strip's longest-running artist (through 1959), loved puns and didn't care who knew it. Beautifully drawn, with an eye-catching but unobtrusive style of caps/lower-case lettering that is unique in the idiom. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 19.75" x 6". Excellent condition, with light-to-moderate age-toning (darker at edges).
