New Book Includes Rare 'Krazy Kat' Comics

By: E&P Staff "Krazy & Ignatz: The Kat Who Walked in Beauty" will be published this Wednesday by Fantagraphics.

The hardcover -- a stand-alone companion to Fantagraphics' "Krazy & Ignatz" book series -- collects rare 1910s and 1920s comics by legendary "Krazy Kat" creator George Herriman of King Features Syndicate.

Included are nine months of never-before-reprinted daily strips that look almost like mini-Sunday comics, Herriman's first stand-alone "Krazy & Ignatz" strips from 1911, and illustrations from the cartoonist's "Krazy Kat Jazz" pantomime/ballet performed in New York in 1922.

The 114-page, 15x7-inch book is edited by Derya Ataker and designed by Jacob Covey.
