    George Herriman The Family Upstairs With Krazy Kat Companion Daily Comic Strip Original Art (King Features Syndicate, c. 1910-11). Herriman fans, take note -- here is one of the earliest Krazy Kat strips we've ever seen. And It even features Ignatz throwing a brick! Herriman slowly introduced his classic cat and mouse characters in this earlier strip, first as tiny drawings near the bottom edge of each panel, and eventually as a separate companion strip that ran underneath. This outstanding ink on Bristol board piece has an approximate image size of 27" x 9.5". The art is in Fair condition, with extensive toning, extensively repaired tears, creasing, pinholes, and chipping at the edges. The strip is slightly brittle at the edges.
