Synopsis

A unique, stand-alone collection of some of the most graphic and brilliantly conceived daily strips ever created, along with many other gems, including the very first stand-alone Krazy & Ignatz strips and more rarities.

Presenting a unique, stand-alone companion to our Krazy & Ignatz series, The Kat Who Walked In Beauty collects many rare and unique dailies from the 1910s and 1920s. Though many readers are aware of Herriman's dynamic Sunday pages, few know that during 1920, in what must have been an editorially unrestrictive period for Herriman, he drew some of the most graphic and brilliantly conceived daily strips ever created; they look like "mini-Sunday" strips. This nine-month stretch of dailies, never-before-reprinted, is among the treasures included in this collection. The collection includes many other Herriman gems, including the very first stand-alone Krazy & Ignatz strips from 1911, and the illustrations from Herriman"s Krazy Kat Jazz pantomime/ballet, performed to captivated New York audiences in 1922. This book fills in several gaps in the daily strip history, reproduced at close to their original size. Black-and-white comic strips and illustrations throughout
