GASOLINE ALLEY: The Comics Retirement Home

GASOLINE ALLEY is copyright 2013 by Tribune Media.

Jim Scancarelli takes Walt Wallet and Slim to the Comics Retirement home in GASOLINE ALLEY. Above is the beginning, the April 24 strip at GoComics. Then just click on the arrow to go through the entire sequence. I think this is just a short visit with Mutt and Jeff, Jiggs and Maggie, etc., and not a destination for the strip's characters. At least I hope so. The sequence is, as of now, still ongoing.

Each daily is packed full of old comic strip characters. I've looked at the above strip a couple of times and just now noticed Ignatz and the Toonerville Trolley! It sure is fun seeing all of these, and it's nice to know that a lot of them are back in print in hardcover reprint books.
