New Comics Day 5/5/10
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under New Comics DayKrazy KatGeorge Herriman 5 May 2010 12:50 PM

Due to arrive in comic shops this week (read on for more info and new-release commentary from the comics blogs):

 Krazy &  Ignatz 1916-1918: Love in a Kestle or Love in a Hut  by George Herriman

Krazy & Ignatz 1916-1918: Love in a Kestle or Love in a Hut
by George Herriman

160-page black & white/color 9" x 12" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-316-3

Comics Comics' Joe McCulloch describes it thusly: "This is a new Fantagraphics softcover collecting the earliest Krazy Kat Sunday pages, thus looping this most venerable Golden Age of Reprints project around to material Eclipse covered one year at a time back in the late ’80s (the Fanta effort began with 1925, where Eclipse left off). I think this one should include three of the ’80s volumes, thus topping out at 160 pages, with the original supplements preserved, but also updated annotations and a new Chris Ware design." Douglas Wolk at Comics Alliance: "In which Fantagraphics' splendid Krazy Kat Sunday strip reprint program loops back around to the beginning of the series' run, previously reprinted by Eclipse/Turtle Island about twenty years ago. This edition also features a brief portfolio of some of the appearances of a little black cat in George Herriman's pre-Krazy comic strips, and a few other curiosities from the early days of the strip." Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter: "Still the greatest comic. The design on this is like it's the ninja issue of the series." Cyriaque Lamar of io9 takes note: "the classic cat-and-mouse series gets the paperback treatment."
