Fantagraphics is proud to re-present Krazy Kat to a new generation of readers. This debut volume reprints what many consider to be Herriman's prime: his Sunday strips from 1925 and 1926. Each volume reprints two full years of Sunday strips, or 104 full-page, B&W Sunday strips (Herriman did not incorporate color into the strip until 1935). Krazy Kat is a love story, focusing on the relationship of its three main characters. Krazy Kat adored Ignatz Mouse. Ignatz Mouse hated Krazy Kat, the expression of which was in throwing bricks at Krazy's head. Offisa Pup loved Krazy and sought to protect "her" (Herriman always maintained that Krazy was genderless), mostly by throwing Ignatz in jail. Each of the characters was ignorant of the other's true motivations. This simple structure allowed Herriman to build entire worlds of meaning into the actions, building thematic depth that led critics like Gilbert Seldes and e.e. cummings to recognize Herriman's genius almost immediately. Each of Fantagraphics' Krazy Kat volumes is designed by Chris Ware, creator of the wildly successful Acme Novelty Library series. This beautiful volume picks up where the Eclipse series left off and includes material never collected before.

"The Krazy & Ignatz books have been a godsend to comics fans... Each book is bizarre, sweetly amusing, and blissfully continuity-free." – "The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives," The A.V. Club
