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

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

Absolutely terrific!

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.

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.

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

This book was fair......cartoon art! Not one of my favorite cartoons though!
Aaron
"Yes! I am going to toss this beautiful brick at Krazy Kat."

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