Heads Up: KRAZY & IGNATZ: THE COMPLETE SUNDAY STRIPS 1916-1924

Coming in November December from Fantagraphics:

Fantagraphics doesn’t seem to be taking orders yet for this, the first* and final volume in their gorgeous, Chris Ware-designed, deluxe hardcover series of Krazy Kat reprints, but as soon as they do, they’ll have my money!

*If you bought the other two volumes, you know what I’m talkin’ about! If you’re curious how the new volume fits into the cycle of Krazy Kat reprints from Fantagraphics, see my post in the comments section.

BTW, if original art is your thing, and you’ve got US$23,750.00 burning a hole in your pocket, you would be well advised to trade your cash for this absolutely gorgeous, framed Krazy Kat page from the first year of the strip:

The seller is Lewis Wayne Gallery. I’ve purchased a number of pieces of original art from Lewis Wayne Gallery over the past few years, and I’ve never had a bad experience, though, of course, your mileage may vary…
