NPR Summary

Comics fans may be familiar with Frank King's long-running domestic epic Gasoline Alley. The new Walt Before Skeezix collects the strips King drew about bachelor Walt Wallet and his motorhead friends before the foundling Skeezix showed up on his front doorstep — and it's a charming portrait of America in the early stages of its national love affair with the automobile.
