Overview

Continuing the award-winning Krazy Kat Sunday reprints, as designed by Chris Ware.
George Herriman integrated full spectacular color into Krazy Kat in June 1935. The gorgeous evolution continues in our second color volume. Which includes the Sunday strips from all of 1939 and 1940. The color format opens the floodgates for a massive amount of spectacular rare color art from series editor Bill Blackbeard and designer Chris Ware's files, including an unpublished Herriman painting from the 1920s and other surprises.Krazy Kat is a love story, focusing on the relationships of its three main characters. Krazy Kat adored Ignatz Mouse. Ignatz Mouse simply tolerated Krazy Kat, except for recurrent onsets of targeted tumescence, which found expression in the fast delivery of bricks to Krazy's cranium. Offisa Pup loved Krazy and sought to protect "her" (Herriman always maintained that Krazy was gender-less) by throwing Ignatz in jail. Each of the characters was ignorant of the others' true motivations, and this simple structure allowed Herriman to build entire worlds of meaning into the actions, building thematic depth and sweeping his readers up by the looping verbal rhythms of Krazy & Co.'s unique dialogue. Most of these strips in this volume have not seen print since originally running in Hearst newspapers over 70 years ago.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 & Up - Most of the stories in this beautifully designed eighth volume in the series focus on the enduring character triangle of a Kat deep in love with a spiteful mouse named Ignatz who returns the affection by tossing a brick, and Offisa Pup, the staunch defender of Krazy Kat who constantly seeks to catch Ignatz in the act. Despite the repetitive nature of the stories, Herriman makes them work by giving Ignatz a delightfully crafty mind for creating wild schemes. Here, Ignatz dons bizarre disguises, hides the brick in boxes, and even creates Rube Goldberg-style machines to sharply deliver that brick to Krazy Kat's head. The vaudevillian slapstick will entertain younger readers, while the cleverness of the characters and fun wordplay in the dialogue will grab older readers looking for more depth. Endnotes help those new to the series orient themselves, while an introduction by journalist Jeet Heer places Herriman's work within a cultural context. This particular volume shines with large-scale color pages of comic-strip masterpieces. Herriman even experiments a bit with layouts, breaking away from the block design common to comics by shaping things around a circle and even using a single image on a page. This is Herriman at his best, and it's easy to see why he was such a favorite of literary giants and children alike.-Matthew L. Moffett, Pohick Regional Library, Burke, VA
