Gasoline Alley Sunday page (1934). Frank King.
Yeah yeah, I couldn't find the exact date that page was published on like I usually do, get over it. Try looking at just how beautiful a piece of comics it is instead, my God! As I explain over in the latest installment of my Robot 6 column, I think this might just be King's defining piece of comics art -- whimsical and experimental, with an adventurous form that's perfectly suited to its content as well as its warm, homey (see?) tone. Just wonderful, probably my favorite page that I've written about on this column. So go read me rhapsodizing about it, talking about why single Sunday pages are the best single pages, and dissecting just how intelligently King gets past the trouble comics has in simultaneously depicting motion through both time and space, right here. I was really proud of how this column came out, you won't be disappointed.
