Description - Krazy & Ignatz 1931-1932 by George Herriman
The fourth volume of chronological reprintings of the classic newspaper strip Krazy Kat portrays the deceptively simple triangle hat sustatained if for more than 30 years. Sexually indeterminate Krazy waits lovingly to be beaned by bricks-- invariably interpreted as tokens of affection--lobbed by caustic Ignatz Mouse; meanwhile, Offissa Pupp attempts , usually vainly to thwart Ignatz, in part to uphold the forces of order and in part out of unrequited love for the Kat. Herriman's brilliant graphics and imaginative designs , and the poetry in the characters' fanciful, fractured dialogue, add up to something still unmatched in comics-- or any other medium. These Sunday episodes from 1931-1932 appear in their original black in white. This one includes an informative essay on Herriman's pre-Krazy career and samples the '31-32 daily strips. Three quarters of a century after their creation, these incomparable comics retain their ineffable appeal, especially in this beautiful showcase volume.
