''Krazy Kat'' large Sunday comic strip, dated 7 November 1943. Created by cartoonist George Herriman, Krazy Kat depicts the unlikely love triangle of a cat, a mouse and a dog: Krazy Kat, Ignatz Mouse and Officer Bull Pupp. Krazy Kat's naive, unrequited love for Ignatz is consistently and unceremoniously rewarded by bricks hurled to the back of his head, thrown by the cantankerous mouse. Officer Bull Pupp does his best to protect Krazy Kat, whom he not so secretly loves, from Ignatz' relentless brick attacks. True to form, this hand-drawn 1943 Sunday strip features Officer Bull Pupp's unsuccessful attempt to shield Krazy Kat from an inevitable brick attack at the hands of Ignatz. With a distinctly Southwestern visual style, Krazy Kat has long been a favorite of comic fans and such notables as E.E. Cummings, William Randolph Hearst, Jack Kerouac and Pablo Picasso. Strip measures 16.5'' by 25''. Mounted to board but in otherwise remarkably near fine condition with only a hint of toning. From the estate of ''Blondie'' creator Chic Young.
