Krazy 3D

I'm Krazy for artwork by George Herriman. Don't ask why, cuz I don't think I can describe it. I've collected every Herriman collection I've ever come across, even those from long before Eclipse Books. Even this Krazy little 3D comic from 1987.

Here, below, it's 3D! Try it! I know you have some of them little glasses around the house. Just remember that the red goes over the left eye.

It's a great pity that Herriman didn't get to see this book or something like it! He probably would have had a fine time playing with this process.

I once read that Herriman and Elzie Segar each admired the work of the other, but never met because of their respective shyness.

I knew that Herriman was plenty shy, but didn't know that about Segar. Consummate penmen both.

I'm going to do a post partly about Segar sometime soon because, get this, he and my father-in-law had the same cartooning teacher.

Yes, I think Herriman would have pushed the 3D process in ways we might never suspect.

I don't know that Segar was generally shy; for all that I know, he might only have been shy with respect to people whom he admired.

Herriman's shyness might have been an artefact of his “passing”.

Ha! Funny how you have that particular connection to Segar!
