Description
 
“Krazy Kat,”, created by George Herrima, became a comic strip in its own right in 1913, making its debut in the “N.Y. Evening Journal.” For 31 years, until Herrima’s death in 1944, the Kat and her tireless tormentor, Ignatz Mouse, counted among their fans some of the leading writers, artists, and intellectuals of the time. The basic humorous premise was role reversal: a small mouse turned the tables in the old cat-and-mouse game and became the aggressor -- but the antics of the two main characters soon took on a depth of feeling that transformed the strip into poetic Punch and Judy. This book contains examples of many of Herrima’s other comic creations as well. Includes a brilliant essay by Gilbert Seldes. 158 illustrations, including 48 in full-color.
