BICLM Zoom Background Series: Frank King’s Gasoline Alley

Few cartoonists can capture the feel of changing seasons quite like Frank King, creator of Gasoline Alley. Known for his innovative panel design, brilliant color palate and the “real-time” aging of his characters, King’s lovingly rendered full-page comics graced the Sunday newspaper from from 1918-1959.  As the leaves change here in Ohio and many of us continue to work from home or attend classes online, BICLM is bringing you a new set of autumnal Zoom backgrounds featuring Walt and Skeezix.
