Walt & Skeezix 2 reviewed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Graffiti: Games, gadgets and graphics: WORDS AND PICTURES: Heroes, humor make holiday bright

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution    |    Ed Hall    |    November 25, 2006

Walt and Skeezix, 1923 & 1924. By Frank O. King. Drawn & Quarterly Books,
$29.95. All ages.

Last year we praised the initial book in this series, the first collection of early "Gasoline Alley" comics strips. This second volume is equally excellent. Two sequences stand out: a 1923 cross-country car race between Walt and Avery, and the 1934 kidnaping of Skeezix by the mysterious Mrs. Octave and Walt's efforts to find the boy.

Looking for something special as a holiday gift for your favorite comics fan? (Even if it's yourself?)

The perfect gift depends on the individual's specific interests, of course. But if you're at a loss for ideas, two of our in-house comics fans suggest some special books that should light up anyone's holiday.
