George Herriman integrated full, spectacular color into Krazy Kat in June, 1935. The gorgeous evolution continues in our third 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. Included are an unpublished Herriman painting from the 1920s and other surprises. Most of these strips in this volume have not seen print since originally running in Hearst newspapers over 70 years ago.

"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

"Herriman's panels convey an irrepressible sense of movement and incorporate distinctly surreal touches, such as the thronged mushrooms that 'rise to feast in florid fungushood,' blooming like umbrellas under a cheese-slice moon." – The New Yorker

"This beautifully produced series is a must for any reader interested in great art." – Publishers Weekly

"One of the very great artists, in any medium, of the 20th century." – Michael Chabon

"Behold the comic strip's proudest achievement: Brickism!" – Art Spiegelman

"Krazy Kat is a demonstration of creativity on such a scale that it is an example of the artistic sensibility at work and of Herriman as pure artist. I can't recommend these volumes highly enough. Modernism, humour, absurdity, language play, racial politics... what more could one ask of a work of art?" – Toronto Globe and Mail
