A collection of reprints from the popular Sunday cartoon. The comic strip features three main characters : Krazy, the cluelesscat who is in love with Ignatz, the mouse; Ignatz who likes to throw bricks at Krazy, which the feline invariably interprets as expressions of love; and Officer Pupp who adores Krazy and is always looking to arrest Ignatz for his crimes. Krazy, meanwhile, always sees the arrests as just two good friends playing a game together. Herriman manipulates this formula over and over again into something fresh, each strip becoming a little funnier because of the readers' familiarity with the strange relationships among the chararcters.

Author Biography - George Herriman

George Herriman was born in New Orleans in 1880 to Creole parents. Emigrating to New York in 1901, his first cartoons appeared in Judge magazine and a variety of other publications until his new series Krazy and Ignatz began to appear in the New York Journal American in 1910. Redefining the then fledgling medium, the series ran for 34 years until just after his death in 1944. Chris Ware is the creator of the wildly successful graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan.
