I love George Herriman, and Krazy Kat especially. This book does a great job of chronicling Herriman's carreer, and is a great collection of Krazy Kat strips. There aren't a lot of Krazy Kat collections, which is sad. For those looking, this is a great place to start. I also enjoy that the part on Krazy Kat from "The Seven Lively Arts" is reprinted in full in this book.

Anyone looking for a great example of what comic strips have done and can do, and for a profile of one of the greatest cartoonists ever to be in newspapers need look no farther. ( )

A comprehensive book detailing the history of George Herriman’s comic creation (or is that Komic Kreation) Krazy Kat with a history of Herriman’s work and biography of his life as well as a large selection of daily strips and Sunday full-page comics. Lots of fun to read even if Susan doesn’t get it. ( )

A more sumptuous collection of George Herriman's "Krazy Kat" strip, with biographical info on Herriman, early illustrations, both "Krazy Kat" and non-Kat, essays on the Kat, origins and beginnings, and some Sunday pages in color. "Krazy Kat" was never a tremendously funny strip to me - just a tremendous one. ( )
