The granddaddy of automobile comic strips is without a doubt, Gasoline Alley. It was created in 1918 by Frank King, for the Chicago Tribune. The newspaper's publisher Colonel Robert McCormic wanted a feature that appealed to the new generation of car owners and mechanics. The strip developed over time becoming one of the first soap operas in any medium. It is still published to this day. Some record!

Not in the same league, but showing considerable staying power was Charlton's Hot Rods and Racing Cars It was published from November 1951 to June 1973, with a total of 120 issues.

Charlton also published other hot rod titles and this category has some of these, including Speed Demons along with later Silver-Age titles Hot Rod Racers and Teenage Hotrodders.

Back in the Golden-Age other titles included Hillman's Hot Rod and Speedway Comics and Fawcett's Hot Rod Comics. Hopefully enough reading matter to keep you occupied, until you take to the wheel again!

We have 11 titles and 123 issues in our 'Automobiles Category' for you to enjoy.
