Krazy Kat by George Herriman (0790-) - 1st Appearance July 26, 1910 in 'Dingbat Family', 1st named strip October 28, 1913, 1st Sunday April 23, 1916 - Legend has it that Krazy Kat survived because it was the favorite comic strip of Newspaper Mogul Wiliam Randolf Hearst.  If that was true, then Mr. Hearst had foresight into the taste of the 21st century.  Krazy Kat is the most sought-after long-running comic strip amongst strip collectors today.  The antics of Ignatz Mouse and Krazy Kat were brilliantly created by George Herriman.    Always a gag strip, Krazy Kat began as a trailier to his 'Dingbat Family' daily.   Eventually it was realized that the trailer was the more popular of the two.   The most classic of the gags was Ignatz' habit of hurling a brick at the head of the lovestruck Krazy Kat.    When the strip graduated to sundays, it was relegated to the sunday editorial page in most papers.   Because of this, most examples until the mid-1930's were black-and-white, color versions in this era are extremely rare.    During the mid 1930's the strip began to appear in sunday tab sections for Hearst.    This coincided with Herriman's change of scenery to the desert southwest.   These color tabs are highly-prized by collectors.   The market for Krazy Kat is very strong.   Both Dailies and Sundays sell at very high premium quickly.
