And One More Krazy Kat

I don’t mean to turn this entirely over to a “you should like Krazy Kat sort of blog,” particularly since it definitely isn’t for everyone. But some of them are accessible even without getting into the strip’s odd rhythms and pace, so here’s another to enjoy.

This particular installment makes the November 4 strip for the same year — the one with Krazy wondering what kind of “chizz” is the moon — more gruesome than could possibly have been intended. Probably George Herriman (or possibly an assistant, if he didn’t write one or the other) just didn’t think of the two strips in conjunction and consider that he was, implicitly, having Ignatz Mouse shooting a character. Or he trusted that since it’s all comic absurdity everyone’s fine in the next strip (or at least the next story) anyway, and we should really just relax.
