Fantasgraphics's second color volume includes the Sunday strips from all of 1937 and 1938, plus more rare color art and never-before-seen Herriman memorabilia from series editor Bill Blackbeard and designer Chris Ware's files.George Herriman integrated full spectacular color into Krazy Kat in June, 1935. The gorgeous evolution continues in the second color volume, which includes the Sunday strips from all of 1937 and 1938. The color format opens the floodgates for a massive amount of spectacular rare color art from series editor Bill Blackbeard and designer Chris Ware's files. Krazy Kat is a love story, focusing on the relationships of its three main characters. Each of the characters was ignorant of the others' true motivations, and this simple structure allowed Herriman to build entire worlds of meaning into the actions, building thematic depth and sweeping his readers up by the looping verbal rhythms of Krazy & Co.'s unique dialogue.

George Herriman (1880-1944), the creator of Krazy Kat, was born in New Orleans and lived most of his life in Los Angeles, California. He is considered by many to be the greatest strip cartoonist of all time.
Bill Blackbeard, the founder-director of the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum, is the world's foremost authority on early 20th Century American comic strips. As a freelance writer, Blackbeard wrote, edited or contributed to more than 200 books on cartoons and comic strips, including The Smithsonian Collection of Newspaper Comics, 100 Years of Comic Strips, and the Krazy & Ignatz series.
The seventh volume of Krazy Kat reprints further verifies that Herriman's strip constitutes a pinnacle of comics art. As throughout the strip's three-decade run, these installments, offered in full color, focus on the eternal triangle of indeterminately gendered Kat; disdainful Ignatz Mouse, whom Kat adores; and Kat's unrequited worshipper, Offissa Pupp, a dog. The triangle is complemented by a rectangle: the ever-present bricks Ignatz hurls at the noggin of hapless Kat, who perceives them as love offerings. Along with the other inhabitants of Coconino County, the trio speaks a droll patois, Yiddish-influenced in the mouth of Krazy, who, for instance, laments, "I are illone. Jetz me." But most crucial to Krazy Kat's exalted status are the remarkable, idiosyncratic backdrops that place the breezily sketched characters in a surrealistically ever-shifting desert. This volume also contains several pieces Herriman drew for friends, including a spectacular, oversized Coconino landscape. Like its predecessors, the book was designed by Jimmy Corrigan creator Chris Ware, one of the few present-day comics artists whose work approaches the brilliance of Herriman's. Gordon Flagg
