Here are some quick replies to the some of the questions that have been posed in this thread:

1) Do the dailies and Sunday pages form the same continuity?

No, they have parallel stories but you can easily read them separately. Mostly the dailies have a storyline while the Sundays are usually stand alone. So the Sunday books will compliment the dailies but you can start reading the dailies now and not fear missing anything.

2) When will we see the Sundays?

Soon, soon. Drawn and Quarterly is working on releasing the first volume of Sundays, covering the years 1921-1922, next year.

3) What about the mystery of Skeezix origins?

This will be mostly explained in the next few volumes that cover the 1920s. However, there are still some unresolved questions that are occasionally mentioned in the strip to this very day. So Skeezix is in fact and 80 year mystery.

thanks for all of the great feedback! visit time.com to see andrew arnold’s review of the book:

So it sounds like we should be seeing the Sunday strips collected starting sometime this year.

Like you, I was wowed by the Sunday strips presented in the Drawn & Quarterly anthologies, but I wasn’t so sure I’d enjoy the B&W daily strips. Shawn Hoke’s review convinced me to try it out, though, and I’m glad I did. Of course, the fact that I just recently entered parenthood myself probably had a lot to do with me being able to appreciate Walt’s devotion to Skeezix.

I thought the two Drawn and Quarterly issues collected everything.
