From the creator of Krazy Kat comes George Herriman's Hoomins, which collects Herriman's two major strips of the 1920s, Stumble Inn and Us Husbands. Us Husbands is a domestic comedy and its Sundays-only format allows for some of Herriman's richest and most detailed drawing - and it is by far the most obscure of Herriman's major works, with aficionados having seen only a glimpse of it. Stumble Inn, for which Herriman drew both richly detailed, six-panel dailies and glorious full-page Sundays, is sometimes described as a precursor to Fawlty Towers. It takes place entirely within a small hotel and pits the long-suffering proprietor, Uriah Stumble, and his staff against a rotating cast of difficult guests. Hijinx ensue, both verbal and visual. Herriman's Hoomins will be augmented with a historical appreciation by the invaluable Jeet Heer (co-editor of Frank King's Walt & Skeezix reprint series and a critic for The National Post), and more Herriman rarities.
