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.
