Krazy and Ignatz 1933-1934: Necromancy by Blue Bean Bush TPB (2004 Fantagraphics) comic books 2002-2004
1st printing. "Necromancy by the Blue Bean Bush" is the fifth in a series reprinting George Herriman's early 20th Century comic strip masterpiece. Most of these strips have not seen print since originally running in Hearst newspapers over 70 years ago. Each volume is edited by the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum's Bill Blackbeard. Krazy & Ignatz 1933-1934 is a hot-baked brickbat of a volume, adance with nearly two full years of the Sunday Krazy Kat (Herriman did not use color until 1935), snug between multiple pages of Herriman extras, not the least of which include an introduction by Blackbeard, a new "DeBaffler" page, and a stunning layout front and back and throughout by the inimitable Chris Ware! Softcover, 9-in. x 11 1/2-in., 112 pages, B&W. Cover price $19.95.
