A gift from the archives

Another great penman of the 1930s is Frank King. His strip Gasoline Alley depicted home grown white folk growing up in America. Although the forms and fashions change constantly, some things remain the same. Although worlds away from George Herriman's Krazy Kat, the two penmen share similar tecniques to very different narrative devices.

Krazy Kat speaks to much the same material, but only in a more abstract/ macro manner. Enjoy this selection from 1931, and have a Merry Chrismas!
