Cat Nipping!

IDW Publishing is releasing my favorite ever Krazy Kat story in hardback. I first saw it when it appeared in Raw many years ago and it's one of the few expanded storylines that Herriman did in his daily strips. From the product discription: "Krazy Kat's most surreal adventures were the famed "Tiger Tea" sequence where Krazy Kat imbibed of the psychedelia-inducing substance. This is George Herriman at his best in the only full-length Krazy Kat adventure story of his career presented in the same era as Terry and the Pirates and Captain Easy. Krazy & Ignatz: Tiger Tea is printed on hemp paper and showcases a rare photo of Herriman sporting a Mexican sombrero and smoking a funny-looking cigarette. A special bookmark in the shape of a tea label and string will make the readers high with happiness". It's available for pre-order here.
