    Krazy, man

    George Herriman - Original Art for Krazy Kat Sunday dated 5-5-18 (King Features, 1918). Running from 1913 until the mid-1940s, Krazy Kat has been hailed as one of the most original, most innovative, and most avante garde comic strips the medium has ever seen. Created by artist George Herriman, this is the story of Krazy Kat, in love with the brick-tossing felon, Ignatz Mouse. Wonderfully bizarre and surreal, the strip was a masterpiece of imagination, utilizing a unique dialect that could have been the inspiration for Walt Kelly's fractured prose years later in Pogo. Offered here is a beautifully composed page, rendered with Herriman's seemingly innate sense of design, in constant motion until the very end of the last panel. Not an inch of space is wasted or ignored; Herriman's storytelling chops are first rate. This page has an overall size of 22" x 18.5", with an image area of approximately 20" x 17", and is in superb condition. From the collection of Russ Cochran.
