If you're like me, you will have left a space on your shelf for a minimum width of either of the previous two volumes of Fantagraphic's softcover "Krazy and Ignatz" volumes. And, like me, you will have misjudged... to your pleasure!

As you well know, this brand new volume now completes the series of Sunday pages that I, for one, have waited over twenty years for. But it does more than that: it is almost TWICE the size of the previous two black and white books and contains more extras than I have time to tell you about; there are color pages from other Herriman works and all sorts of goodies. For sheer graphic bliss, the price to volume to quality ratio has never been more impressive.

My deepest gratitude to Bill Blackbeard, Chris Ware and Fantagraphics for making this series come to life after so many mis-starts throughout two decades - and sincere thanks to all my fellow fans for sticking with the series and making it worth the publisher's while.

Fandom unite! The late 'Eighties and early 'Nineties were tough for connoisseurs of vintage strips - so much was promised in good faith, results were lovely and yet floundered: remember Kitchen Sink Press and all the good they did?
It is hard sometimes to share the not-quite-so-secret pleasures of these vintage comic strips - one had the feeling twenty years ago of belonging to a elite cabal of devotees; while everyone else was throwing money away on "Image" comics, these Herriman strips were like a secret knock at a speakeasy whose exquisite spirits were meant for a more refined palate, one that choked on comics loaded with guns and trash talk. Now, the few we were have to share - and that's a hard brick to be beaned with, though it has resulted in this completed series.

So thank you. And thank you, George Herriman, for transcending a maligned genre with your vision, wit and kindness... and allowing us fans to "walk in beauty".

Format: Paperback
Over the past decade or so, Fantagraphics has issued collections of the Sunday comic strips for Krazy Kat. The first of these thirteen volumes started in the middle of the 1916-1944 run, with a book that covered 1925 and 1926. The series proceeded with volumes covering a pair of years till it got to the end, then looped around to the beginning with larger editions that contained three years each. Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924, "At Last My Drim of Love Has Come True" is the final volume.

First, the comic itself. If you've been a fan of previous volumes, you know exactly the top notch material you're going to get here. If you're new to Krazy Kat, you're in for a treat; I should say that you're in for a treat if you appreciate comics and don't think Marmaduke or the Family Circus is the apex of the genre.

The centerpiece of Krazy Kat is a rather odd love triangle between a mouse, a cat and a dog. Ignatz Mouse loves to bean Krazy Kat in the head with a brick; Krazy, who regards Ignatz as his "little anjil", takes such assaults as a sign of affection. Offisa Pupp, on the other hand, regards Ignatz's actions as a crime; his own affection for Krazy leads him to try and arrest Ignatz. Against this backdrop is the surreal desert landscape of Kokonino County.

If you're looking for standard comic strip punchline humor, you will rarely find it here, but this is a wonderfully funny strip, regarded by many as the best comic strip ever. If you're a fan of the other books in the series, this one offers more extras than any of the other books: not only do you get three years of Sunday pages, but you also get the complete runs of George Herriman's early strip "Mrs. Watiaminit - The Woman Who is Always Late" and the 1920s strip, "Us Husbands".

Format: Paperback
If you’re new to Krazy Kat, this is what you need to know first of all: it’s a comic strip about a Kat (Krazy) who loves a mouse (Ignatz); the mouse severely dislikes the kat and throws bricks at him/her/it to demonstrate these feelings; however, the kat interprets the bricks as tokens of love. There’s also a third party involved, Officer Bull Pupp, a dog who loves the kat and loathes the mouse. These animals happen to live in Coconino County, Arizona. The strip was written and drawn by one George Herriman. Sounds interesting? Then you may read on.

When Fantagraphics a few years back released this volume of KRAZY KAT Sunday pages dated 1922-1924, their mission to have all 28 years (1916-44) of the Kat’s full-page adventures reissued was duly accomplished. Most readers are familiar with the story: publisher Eclipse began a book series of reprints of these Sunday pages in the late 80s, but only reached year 1924 before going out of business. Years later, Fantagraphics caught up where Eclipse had left off, and completed the series; then went back again to the first years to have them released once more, in new editions. This volume, "AT LAST MY DRIM OF LOVE HAS COME TRUE," is thus the last one in the series. (I’m getting confused myself as I write this, but I think all’s correct.)

As it was Eclipse’s collection of 1923-Sundays that had got me hooked on Krazy Kat in the first place, when at 10 years of age I’d stumbled upon it at a used bookstore and thought it looked kinda funny, to read that particular year once more here bears some amount of nostalgic value to me. However, more important than nostalgia is the fact that Krazy Kat remains an extremely satisfying experience; more so than almost any other comic strip.
