Not only does this volume reprint the first two years of the strip in which King's friendly and nostalgic imagination took shape but each book in the series features an eighty-page color introduction by Jeet Heer of Canada's "National Post. Each introduction will also feature never-before-seen archival photos and ephemera from the personal collection of King's granddaughter.

"Gasoline Alley, an affectionate portrait of modern living, is remembered for being the first strip to set itself in contemporary American history. The characters of" Gasoline Alley grow up, go to war, and have grandchildren. The strip always reflects the kind, sweet pace of life.
