About Author:

George Herriman Chris Ware

George Herriman was born August 2nd, 1880 He was an African American cartoonist whose comic strip Krazy Kat has been said by many to be America s greatest cartoon Herriman was born in New Orleans, but his Creole family soon moved to California As a teenager, he contributed drawings to local newspapers In his early 20s, he moved to New York City and freelanced until newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst hired him for the New York Evening Journal During the first decade of the 20th century, Herriman s first success was called The Family Upstairs Krazy Kat gained independence on October 28, 1913 as a cartoon character of his own, and ran until George Herriman died in 1944 Krazy Kat never achieved wide popularity among newspaper readers, though it attracted a highbrow following Fans included Pablo Picasso, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, F Scott Fitzgerald, Frank Capra, H L Mencken, and Ernest Hemingway Krazy Kat s lengthy tenure owed much to Hearst s personal love of the strip Acceptance by the cultural mainstream grew after Herriman s death, as Krazy Kat appeared in an animated series by Paramount Studios and even in a novel Throughout the 20th century, cartoonists have considered Krazy Kat the founding father or mother of sophisticated comic strips.



Comments Krazy and Ignatz, 1925-1926: There is a Heppy Land Furfur A-waay

  • Rob McMonigal

    I didn't find this particular edition of Krazy Kat to be quite as entertaining as the first time I read the strip. I'm not quite sure as to why--it may be that the verbal interplay of these full-length strips are not quite as crisp as the shorter ones I read in the other collection. There's less reason for Ignatz to throw the brick on behalf of the reader because Krazy doesn't always say something that's just plan pun-bad as he did on the daily strips.These are still funny and clever--Ignatz fin [...]


  • Matthew

    A sublime mix of high art and low brow humour, Herriman's Krazy Kat comics are endlessly, endlessly, endlessly inventive. The characters have a surprising depth for a newspaper comic strip (which could rival the cast of Schultz's Peanuts), the wording is often ridiculously alliterative, the jokes range from amusingly baffling to real belly laughs, and it conjoins a subtle pathos with bizarre surrealism and a Mexican folk-art aesthetic. It's got way more than just charm, it borders on a sense of [...]


  • Peacegal

    The classic comic series Krazy Kat is introduced to a whole new audience. Krazy Kat is a lovelorn feline who suffers the problem of so many women--no matter how badly her love object (Ignatz the mouse) treats her, she just loves him more. It's obvious how much the modern comic strip Mutts was inspired by this one, what with the scribbly doodle characters and creative use of the English language.


  • Mike Jensen

    Most comic strips suffer from being reprinted in a book. The creator's game becomes obvious and cloys. The extraordinary thing about KRAZY KAT is that it was essentially a one-joke strip, but Herriman's endless creativity and depth never made even the predictable parts feel old, and best of all, he could subvert his own clichés to keep the strip endlessly entertaining. KRAZY KAT is sublime.


  • Molly

    This might not be the exact one I read. But Krazy Kat is great. Even though it is a collection of comic strips, where one of about three things happens (Ignatz throws a brick, Ignatz goes to jail, or Officer Pup does something goofy), each one is well-written, well-drawn, and I love the ambiguity of it all. For anyone who likes comics, this is a good classic to know.


  • Lera

    Pup loves Krazy, Krazy loves Ignatz, Ignatz loves hurting others. Funnier than it sounds.


  • Frank Hoppe

    Absolutely terrific!


  • Barb Bailey

    This book was fairrtoon art! Not one of my favorite cartoons though!


  • Aaron

    "Yes! I am going to toss this beautiful brick at Krazy Kat."


  • Agustin

    Every book in this series. Herriman you the fucking boss.


  • Lily

    At first it wasn't funny. And then, suddenly, it was. Who knew a brick to the head could be so entertaining?


  • Matt

    Every strip is a work of art. Plan to read all the reprints.
