Re-presenting the finest example of the artform in the history of the graphic medium to a new generation of readers, this superbly designed collection collects what many consider to be Herriman's prime, 104 full-page Sunday strips from 1925 and 1926. Krazy and Ignatz is a love story, focusing on the relationships between its three main characters. Krazy Kat adored Ignatz Mouse, Ignatz Mouse hated Krazy Kat and Offisa Pup loved Krazy. This simple structure allowed Herriman to build entire worlds of meaning into the actions, developing thematic depth that led critics like e.e. cummings to recognise Herriman's genius immediately.
