Should we say alleluia ? The "Krazy and Ignatz" reprints are not dead !
Krazy & Ignatz: The Komplete Kat Komics (The Eclipse Books / Turtle Island Foundation)This reprints starts with the begginning of the Sunday Pages, in 1916. It was never completed. Each issue featured a year's Sunday strips, an essay or two and, in later issues, some dailies, color comics, and Krazy trivia.
Krazy and Ignatz (Fantagraphics Books)This serie seems to be ... the continuation of the one above ! This reprint does not follow exactly the original since we can find 2 years of reprints in each volume.
Since the first volume reprints 1925-1926, it seems that the vol.11 of the previous reprints has never been published and the vol.10 has been published.
Komplete Kolor Krazy Kat (Remco Worldservice Books)These reprints starts reproducing the comic-strip since 1935, when George Herriman switched to a colored version of . Edited by Richard Marschall. It was never completed.
Family Upstairs: Introducing Krazy Kat (Hyperion Press, Incorporated)
Here is another small section, a list of the books dedicated to Krazy Kat & George Herriman.
KRAZY KAT : THE COMIC ART OF GEORGE HERRIMAN (Abradale Press)
George Herriman's Krazy Kat (Grosset & Dunlap 1977)
COCONINO CHRONICLE (Morning Star Publications, 1988)
AMERICA'S GREAT COMIC-STRIPS ARTISTS (A Roundtable Press Book 1997, Originally published in 1989 by Abbeville Press Inc.)
I couldn't close this page without talking about some other works, not by george Herriman, but related to his creation.
"Krazy Kat" (released from 1953 to 1956 by DELL Comics)
KRAZY KAT, A NOVEL IN FIVE PANELS (ALFRED A. KNOPF 1988)
Partial reproduction of the January 25, 1942 Sunday page
So...So, none of the reprints started were finished, and none intended to reprint the entire production of Mr. Herriman.
So don't hope too much, less than a third of the years "Krazy Kat" was running is actually reprinted, and in these reprints, less than 50% of the strips are reproduced.
So 1/6th of Krazy Kat has been reprinted, and these reprints are actually... out of print !
