"Krazy Kat" (1921) - George Herriman Sunday Page

Since it was too hard to keep up several different blogs on the collection, I closed down the aerospace and comic blogs.

So, here's one of our favorite comic items -- a great Krazy Kat. My wife, who is from Kansas, liked the image for its treatment of tornadoes and sunflowers... I uploaded a somewhat larger than normal image so you could enlarge the image and read the frames.
