Product Details


So damn deep, so damn wonderful and so damnably us -- Laurel Maury Don't read Krazy Kat because it's good for you. Read it because it is you, an American being, immigrant-infused, with a light-hearted sense of infinite promise. Herriman's art, word and line, is so damn deep, so damn wonderful and so damnably us. --Laurel Maury" In truth, nothing less needs to be propped up on the ivory stilts of 'fine art' than Krazy Kat. On a daily basis, in a medium designed to provide simple diversion, Herriman went about his business unpretentiously, seemingly effortlessly, leaving an American masterpiece in his wake. " 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. " Language, as deployed by Krazy, is a fluid and fantastic thing, a patois from a people of one it has a poetical allure and a cadence all its own. The art, rendered in scratchy quill and ink, was endearingly personal many of his arrangements retain their innovative delight until today Thus the world is set for a world of fantasy and elastic language. And despite its unvarying central theme, Krazy Kat has a freshness of cartooning and language to it, one that was held to for the entirety of its thirty-year run. This, as any storyteller will readily admit, is nothing short of miraculous. --David Mathews" Endlessly perplexing, energetic, deep, and playful.--Sarah Boxer A testament to the creative power of the comic book form.--Tony Brownfield The exquisite design and clever wordplay remain sharp as ever.--Gordon Flagg This beautifully produced series is a must for any reader interested in great art. One of the very great artists, in any medium, of the 20th century.--Michael Chabon, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
