When Fantagraphics launched its collection of Krazy Kat Sunday strips back in 2002, we picked up with the 10th and 11th years of the legendary strip (1925-1926) because another publisher had already collected the first nine during the 1980s and 1990s.

I have been hearing for quite a while how ingenious the Krazy Kat strips were, so I took a chance and bought the first of a ten-volume set to check it out for myself. This book contains the Sunday strips from 1916 through 1918.

More konstant delight with Krazy Kat, Offisa Pup, and Ignatz Mouse, the li'l angel. Seldes proclaimed this one of the top works of art produced in America in the first half of the 20th kentury. It is hard to argue with evidence so sublime. Several Shakespeare and Kervantes references.
