The New York Journal of Books said that the first volume of LOAC Essentials (Baron Bean 1916) "sets the standard for archival and reprint quality." The Washington Times wrote that it's "beautiful. It showcases Mr. Herriman's developing style and his move toward a combination of absurdity, surrealism, and art deco." LOAC Essentials Volume 6 presents the second year of George Herriman's much-lauded pre-Krazy Kat masterpiece. These strips are nearly a century old and are reprinted here for the first time ever.
