The gorgeous evolution continues in our second color volume. Which includes the Sunday strips from all of 1939 and 1940. The color format opens the floodgates for a massive amount of spectacular rare color art from series editor Bill Blackbeard and designer Chris Ware's files, including an unpublished Herriman painting from the 1920s and other surprises.Krazy Kat is a love story, focusing on the relationships of its three main characters. Krazy Kat adored Ignatz Mouse. Ignatz Mouse simply tolerated Krazy Kat, except for recurrent onsets of targeted tumescence, which found expression in the fast delivery of bricks to Krazy's cranium. Offisa Pup loved Krazy and sought to protect "her" (Herriman always maintained that Krazy was gender-less) by throwing Ignatz in jail. Each of the characters was ignorant of the others' true motivations, and this simple structure allowed Herriman to build entire worlds of meaning into the actions, building thematic depth and sweeping his readers up by the looping verbal rhythms of Krazy Co.'s unique dialogue. Most of these strips in this volume have not seen print since originally running in Hearst newspapers over 70 years ago....

    Some say this is the best comic strip ever. It is certainly tied for first. Witty, intellectually challenging, allusive, endlessly creative both in the plotting and the art. It dazzles, yet is not for every taste. It is too smart and subtle to have been popular in its own time or in ours. This is late work, but the strip never faltered.

    Not only is it a constant statement on corruption in law enforcement, it's a fresh challenge to excessively literate people like me, who recognize words by sight and don't pronounce them in their heads.

    Dark. Surreal. Romantic. Futile. Of course I love Krazy Kat.
