“With those who hold a comic strip cannot be a work of art I shall not traffic. The qualities of Krazy Kat are irony and fantasy ... It happens that in America irony and fantasy are practiced in the major arts by only one or two men, producing high class trash; and Mr Herriman, working in a despised medium, without an atom of pretentiousness, is day after day producing something essentially fine.” --Gilbert Seldes, The Seven Lively Arts
