Krazy & Ignatz HC Tiger TeaMedia Release -- Famed comics historian and creator Craig Yoe and IDW Publishing are proud to offer an homage to the celebrated creation of great George Herriman with a brand new hardcover collection, Krazy & Ignatz in Tiger Tea.

Written and illustrated by Herriman, historians note that Krazy Kat was first beaned by Ignatz on July 26, 1910 at the bottom of another strip, before getting their own exclusive strip in 1913. This year is the centennial anniversary of Krazy and Ignatz making head banging an art form, and is also the Chinese "Year of the Tiger." Appropriately, Krazy & Ignatz in Tiger Tea features the very best of the infamous 1936 "Tiger Tea" episodes, in which Krazy and the other citizens of Coconino County drink a psychedelia-inducing substance, and dreamy tempests in the teapots are a result!

Showcasing nearly 100 strips, Krazy & Ignatz in Tiger Tea also offers a rare photo of Herriman sporting a Mexican sombrero and smoking afunny looking cigarette, a perfect addition to this fun, classic trip down memory lane, with the accent on the trip! All this is introduced by Paul Krassner, the founder and editor in the heady, hazy, hippie 1960's of the iconoclastic anti-establishment magazine, The Realist.

Krazy & Ignatz in Tiger Tea is the latest book from the IDW imprint, YOE Books, edited, designed and written by Yoe, winner of both an Eisner Award and the Society of Illustrator's Gold Medal. Coming next from YOE Books is Dan DeCarlo's Jetta, available in stores on April 14th and collecting all the comics of the "Teen-Age Sweetheart of the 21st Century" for the first time. Vice Magazine has deemed Yoe "The Indiana Jones of Comics Historians."

Krazy and Ignatz in "Tiger Tea" is now available in stores. Diamond order code NOV09 0861. ISBN 978-1600106453.
