The show

An exhibition to rediscover a great classic of the original comic strip, now considered the precursor of the modern graphic novel. From November 24th 1918, the release date of the first episode on the "Chicago Tribune", the Gasoline Alley strip has spanned a hundred years of history, recounting the lives of ordinary people in the face of great events of the 20th century with poetry and humor. A monumental work that has survived its author and appears to us today as a single great novel realized in real time. The exhibition Frank King. A century of Gasoline Alley is dedicated to this unique and surprising case in the history of comics. Curated by the Hamelin association together with Giovanni Nahmias, TV author and comic book scholar, the exhibition brings to Europe for the first time a selection of almost 50 original plates, organized in a path that immerses the visitor in the extraordinary world created by Frank King in over the decades.
