The mighty Craig Yoe (editor of the Arf! books) has put together a Web site devoted to Krazy Kat cartoonist George Herriman. The site boasts a biography of the artist, several YouTube cartoons, comic strips, rare art and a shop where you can get Krazy-related merchandise such as books and T-shirts.
The really notable item on the site lies in the news section, where Yoe says that author Michael Tisserand (author of The Sugarcane Academy) is in the midst of working on a biography of Herriman, to be tentatively published by HarperCollins.
Tisserand reports that “the book begins with the extended Herriman clan in New Orleans and then follows George Herriman’s immediate family to California, and continues on with George Herriman’s amazing life and career, as well as examines his great contribution to comics, art, literature and the world.”
Tisserand says he can be reached “most easily at his email — michaeltisserand [at] yahoo [dot] com.” Tisserand goes on to say, “I’ll appreciate any ideas and leads, and I’d also be very happy to answer any general questions about the direction and scope of my work.”
