This book, unique on the subject, was edited by Bill Blackbeard. It is an integral reprint of the infamous strip from Georges Herriman, "The Dingbat Family" later renamed "The Family Upstairs". This strip was most known for having been used as the genesis of the famous characters Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse. It was a daily strip, varying from five to six panels.

The book has an introduction, by Bill Blackbeard, as well as 209 pages of strips, with no more details... Quite unpractical as one doesn't even know the publication date of any of the strips!!
