    George Herriman - The Dingbat Family with Krazy Kat Daily Comic Strip Original Art (Hearst, circa 1913). Hang onto your hats -- offered here is an extremely rare Dingbat Family daily with a Krazy Kat bottom strip. The Dingbats were Herriman's first important comic strip and it was here that Krazy was first introduced as the family cat. Although this strip is undated, the series only ran six years, from 1910-1916, so it's of exceptional vintage. The Dingbat Family strip, with characters that recall Mutt and Jeff, is funny enough, but the real coup here is the Krazy Kat bottom strip, which features Ignatz hurling a brick -- this time made of ice cream -- at Krazy; brick-hurling strips are the creme de la creme for KK collectors, and this one's a winner. The image area measures 27" x 9", and the art is in Very Good condition; the strip was mounted to a thick piece of cardboard, and there are glue stains all around the edges where a matte was apparently attached at one time. The strip shows moderate overall aging, but is overall the strip is very well-preserved. Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a superb, early Krazy Kat!
