about

As Fantagraphics' ambitious plan to reprint every single Sunday Krazy Katpage created by George Herriman for close to three decades (this being thepenultimate book) careens toward the finish line, this volume features anotherthree years' worth of Sunday strips - over 150 little masterpieces by thegreatest cartoonist of all time, featuring the greatest comic-strip lovetriangle of all time: "kat," "mice"and "pupp." Each page is a hilarious, poeticmasterpiece crackling with verbal wit and graphic brilliance. Those were thedays! In the introductory essay, editor Bill Blackbeard chronicles Krazy Kat'sascent from its earliest days as a tiny pendant for Herriman's earlier strips"The Dingbat Family" and "The Family upstairs" to its own full feature. A secondmajor article in this volume is Bob Callahan's "Geo. Herriman's Los Angeles," afascinating look at Herriman's pre-Krazy Kat days asjournalist/illustrator, covering such things as a Mexican bullfight (Herrimanwas appalled), the opening of a new "bums' jail" (Herriman's sympathies wereclearly with the vagrants), and UFO sightings - all accompanied by Herriman'svirtuoso cartoons, of course. As usual, the cover is designed by Chris Ware,featuring a striking two-color look that will set this latest volume apart fromthe previous eleven.
