Krazy & Ignatz : comprising the complete full-page comic strips, 1925-26 by George Herriman( Book )

59 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 1937 and 1938. 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. Krazy Kat is a love story, focusing on the relationships of its three main characters. 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. With a full 104 Sunday pages this time around, this particular book is jam packed with little room for extras, but we did squeeze in a half-dozen or so pages' worth of never-before-seen Herriman memorabilia (all in color), including a spectacular full-color New Year's card illustration done for a friend."--Publisher's website

The illustrations in this book have been gathered from several different sources. A brief explanation should help the reader to better understand and enjoy them. In comic-strip terminology there are 'Sunday pages' and 'dailies.' The Krazy Kat Sunday pages in black and white, consisting of pen and ink drawings, each measuring approximately 20 by 17 inches, have almost all been reproduced from the original artwork. Relatively large, Herriman's drawings are skillfully rendered with a strength and clarity which give them an energetic presence
