Editorial Reviews

Review

Krazy Kat is something way better than the greatest strip; it’s a milestone of 20th century visionary art... George Herriman was one of those godsent popular artists like Chaplin, Armstrong, Hitchcock and Dylan whose low art makes mincemeat of the high. Geez, this stuff is wonderful.” (Tom DeHaven)

“One could argue the claim, confidently, persuasively, and with an all-but-inexhaustible store of ever-fresh evidence, that George Herriman was one of the very great artists, in any medium, of the 20th century.” (Michael Chabon)

About the Author

George Herriman (1880-1944), the creator of Krazy Kat, was born in New Orleans and lived most of his life in Los Angeles, California. He is considered by many to be the greatest strip cartoonist of all time.

Bill Blackbeard, the founder-director of the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum, is the world's foremost authority on early 20th Century American comic strips. As a freelance writer, Blackbeard wrote, edited or contributed to more than 200 books on cartoons and comic strips, including The Smithsonian Collection of Newspaper Comics, 100 Years of Comic Strips, and the Krazy & Ignatz series.

Format: Paperback
Fantagraphics proves once again that eternal recurrence does indeed exist. For once again - though many of us probably feel unworthy of such an Epicurean time-traveling traipse - some of the most beautiful and engaging comic art ever to saturate periodically distributed finely pressed pulp causes our aesthetically instinctual saccadian motion to dance giddily upon another collection of Krazy Kat Sunday pages. The comic equivalent of medieval tapestries. Visual jazz. If only eternal recurrence were eternal! For all gratuitously wondrous things must finish at last. And we're almost thee, weary comic journeyfolk. Only one mere minuscule volume remains for this most splendiferous of comic reprints. For almost a decade Fantagraphics has provided delicate succor to those delirious with Krazy Kat hankerings. Not only did they fulfill the promise of filling out the now long expired Eclipse series, but they now stand poised to completely replace those gangly and hoary collections with in print and tool-like ready-to-hand editions. Zuhandenheit! This newest edition covers volumes 4 through 6 of that now demised series. But what's more, and as usual, it adds new essays and voluminous Ignatz debaffler entries. In fact, many of the debafflers here were extracted verbatim from those original books. And why not? Fine traditions need not end. And thankfully many fine traditions endure here, including fine graphic design work, picture perfect printing and sturdy construction. Anyone who had their artwork treated so diligently (and almost religiously) would likely go crimson with modesty. If only "Garge" could see his indelible legacy. Luckily, for the curious who may have missed out over a decade ago, that legacy has once again emerged in book form. So no more whining!Read more ›

Format: Paperback
This book, unlike the others on the market, is far more than a compilation of the Kat's comic strips. Herriman's art as given to friends, much in full color, informs our knowledge of his thought processes. And the many vignettes from friends and colleagues round out a well-balanced view of Herriman the man as well as the artist. I look at this book again and again and marvel that the work is so fresh after almost 100 years.

I buy everything released that has George Herriman's Krazy Kat strips in it. They are always top quality entertainment without fail. Just as wonderful are the added stories and pictures included that tell the story of The Krazy trio, Krazy, Ignatz and Offissa Pup and their creator, George Herriman! These books are like a look into the past yet are just as relevant as any comic of today. You cannot go wrong with these books. I promise!

Dad is a huge fan and has bought each book when they are printed. He grew up with these cartoons. He also loves all the extra pictures, cartoons etc done by the author. Waiting impatiently for the dailies. Each book has an interesting cover.

This is a faithful presentation of the Sunday comics as published in the 1920s. It is not for fast reading.
