Krazy & Ignatz 1931-1932 is one hot-baked brickbat of a volume, adance with two full years of the Sunday Krazy Kat (Herriman did not use color until 1935), snug between multiple pages of Herriman extras, including two premiere appearances of Krazy from 1909, never before reprinted; a sports page panorama of graphic fun with the French boxing champion, Georges Carpentier; two extremely frank daily strip revelations about Krazy's dubious gender; several gag cartoons from the early days of the last century; vignettes of the Coconino Kast of Kharacters drawn for Kat fans; and a first-time-ever reprint of Gilbert Seldes' second article on Krazy, written in 1935 for Esquire, two decades after his seminal piece in The Seven Lively Arts, with comments by Bill Blackbeard; plus an introduction by Blackbeard detailing the miraculous recovery of many of the Sunday pages in this volume from apparent newspaper oblivion, a new Debaffler page, and a stunning layout front and back and throughout by the inimitable Chris Ware!
