What a treat from LOAC! We get to see the transition of the terrific comic strip 'Gasoline Alley' going from the hands of it's great founding author/cartoonist/father Frank King to waiting on deck cartoonist Dick Moores. (Who finally gets the job of his life, certainly the one he was born for!) I knew I couldn't wait to see the 5 Star art, (I wasn't disappointed!) but I wasn't prepared for the wonderful 5 Star dialogue of the characters, who are so beautifully realized! The intro on Mr. Moores along with neat examples of his pre GA art, (you'll see a a previous comic strip of his and the works of his years at Disney doing comic books and strips.), is alone worth the price of admission. It's also fun to see how long it takes for Dick to feel his oats with doing the strip, it doesn't happen over night, but his signature style does pop up in panels here and there and then there are just more and more, can't wait for Vol.2!

I have been following Gasoline Alley since I was a boy, but had not had the opportunity to see some of the earlier stories. This volume is really a snapshop of the Gasoline Alley family when Skeezik's family is just about all grown up, Chipper in college and Clovia in high school. The tradition continues with Clovia and Slim now being grandparents via their adopted son Rover. I would like to have the whole run of the series, but it will probably not happen in my lifetime. This book was a nice collection, but only a snippet.

Gasoline Alley was my favorite comic strip from the time I first started reading it at age 10, which is near the end of this volume. It's still running but the art work isn't quite as good as Moores' was, and Moores' stories were far superior.
It was a strip about an extended family's everyday life in a small town, yet he always made it interesting. And there were plenty of great characters, though many of them featured in this volume are never seen today, such as Judy, Gideon, Chipper, Nubbin, Eve. I remembered all those great members of the Wallet family from my childhood but I had forgotten some great supporting characters, such as Dr. Fuddle.
Now let's hope that Volume 2 and Volume 3 and on through the end of the Moores era are quickly released.

Dick Moores takes over and Gasoline Alley only gets better. Crisp stories, lush art, great intro essay make this essential reading.

Loved every strip. Dick Moores does a fantastic job of taking over the series. Every story line was enjoyable. I can't wait for volume 2.
