This mammoth 500+ page volume collects under one cover the four previously issued volumes -- Dances With Sheep, Fear of a Black Marker, What a Long Strange Strip It's Been and The Passion of the Keef -- that together contained the entirety of one of the most consistently entertaining regularly published comic strips in recent memory. This is the rare volume that actually deserved to be called a treasury edition (so, of course, it was not) as so many of the strips contained herein are gems, and put together constitute a sizable treasure. The K Chronicles amply demonstrates the special power of humor to get you through. The old Freak Brothers adage, "Dope gets you through times of no money better than money gets you through times of no dope," might be more aptly (and accurately) reworded to read, "Good, smart & funny comics get you through times of no money better than money gets you through times of no good, smart & funny comics." Thus, this book should be considered an excellent hedge against the coming inflationary pressures that may occasionally leave one bereft of disposable income. Seeing this book on our shelves in and of itself constitutes one of "Life's Little Victories™" that Mr. Knight has made his own. Highly recommended to all those who enjoy witty social and political observations in the grand tradition of the original glory days of Mad Magazine, those who, in other words, like a good laugh that leaves them a bit wiser. Spend some time up close and personal with Keef, here.
