Another three years of George Herriman's splendidly surreal romance for the ages in a handsome archival collection.

Widely considered to be one of the best comics strips ever created, George Herriman's Krazy Kat detailed the comings and goings of a lovestruck vagabond "Kat," a malicious mouse, and a diligent dog just trying to keep order. This new deluxe hardcover collects the full-sized Sunday pages from 1919 through 1921 with all their verbal wit and graphic brilliance on full display.

As the sublime strip enters into the '20s, the population of Coconino County increases as the likes of Joe Stork, Blind Pig, and Bum Bill Bee settle into Herriman's enchanted mesas. Also, brand-new readers and Herriman aficionados alike will be enchanted to find out how Ignatz solves the problem when his brick supplier runs out of stock, how Krazy Kat fares after taking up boxing, and what happens when a new "Katnippery" opens providing libations to the locals. The second volume of the George Herriman Library proves that his strip is still as groundbreaking and funny as it was 100 years ago.

Krazy & Ignatz 1919–1921 includes photographs, artwork, and introductory text by comic historians Bill Blackbeard and Michael Tisserand.
