Hooray for Krazy Katblogging!VKW
props to you, doghouse,for posting a krazy kat pic.
Krazy doesn't come up in conversation much; now and then you'll meet somebody who remembers the old King Features cartoons (which were remarkably well done) but not many folks know about George Herriman's originals.I was lucky enough to get Volume 2 of The Komplete Kolor Krazy Kat, which was supposed to be a seven-volume set but the publisher went belly up. It and The (London) TimesAtlas of the Second World War are my two most cherished coffee table books. Fantagraphics Books is now bringing the strips out in chronological order in a large paperback format.
Now THIS is a kat blogging I can get behind.
more props to you, doghouse, for mentioning fantagraphics, a publishing house that does a very, very good job of preserving comic art in all aspects.
