Do you throw your brick in love or anger?

Am I the only one who thinks it's a shame Fantagraphics isn't publishing the dailies along with the Sundays? (Or are they, in the later volumes I haven't been able to afford yet?)

I've come to realise that I have a blanket dislike of all newspaper strips, and therefore must conclude that Krazy Kat is DUD.

I agree with Casuistry. Even though the Sunday strips are usually considered as the Klassik Krazy Kat, some of the daily strips are equally good.

Admittedly, I haven't read a lot of the daily strips - just the two or three books of them published in Finland.

When I say I'm in love, you'd best believe I'm in love, L-U-V. Classic.

i'm kind of baffled by it to be honest. i keep trying - i just borrowed one of the sunday year comps to try again - but its not working.

My tattoo is of the brick, in flight.

It's mainly because they picked up from where Eclipse went bust, and aimed to continue that series as such. Plus resources/expense/quality/sales vs. each other considerations. But there tend to be at least two other publishers banging out cheapjack daily collections at any given time to take up the slack.

I've never seen a daily KK collection!

Also, I guess I am the anti-DV, with my general love of newspaper strips.

Casuistry (Chris P), Monday, 29 November 2004 08:55 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't like the dailies as much - there isn't the space for the poetics, both verbal and visual - but I'd certainly buy any collections that came out.

Yes, but I think they create something of a context for the Sundays. I find the Sundays can be a bit overwhelming, and I like the dailies for creating space between the Sundays. If that makes sense.

Not only is this ingenious disposal of the tech, it bodes well for lots of future purposes. Somebody should invest some time/money.
