Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924: "At Last My Drim of Love has Come True"by George Herriman
The final collection of Krazy Kat Sunday pages!Krazy Kat, with its eternally beguiling love triangle of kat/dog/mouse, its fantastically inventive language, and its haunting, minimalist desert décor, has consistently been rated the best comic strip ever created, and Fantagraphics’ award-winning series one of the best classic comic-strip reprint series ever published.
With our 13th volume, Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924, the decades-in-the-making project of publishing every single Krazy Kat Sunday created by Herriman comes to a close. (Next: The dailies!)
While the Krazy Kat Sundays were created and published in black and white until 1935 (and therefore the majority of strips in this book are black and white), Herriman’s publisher did briefly experiment with running the strip in color in 1924, and all 10 of these rare full-color strips are presented here. The book also includes more rare photographs of Herriman, a “DeBaffling” section explaining period references and in-jokes, and the usual surprise “goodies” each of these volumes springs on their readers. And for the 13th and last time, the covers will be by Chris Ware.
