Early Frank King Strips

Kevin Huizenga, a cartoonist in his own right, has some great show and tell: full page cartoons drawn by the pen of another cartoonist -- Frank King -- best known for creating the still-running GASOLINE ALLEY comic strip. This is a great collection of work from 1910 to 1919.

A big thanks to Dirk Deppey at Journalista!

Just for fun: 20 seconds from the TREES TO TRIBUNES documentary showing Frank King at work as well as the real life inspiration for GASOLINE ALLEY's lead character Walt Wallet:
