For me, Krazy Kat by Jay Cantor was the third in a sort-of trilogy of novels that retold the stories of various comic book type characters. The novel is told in five sections: the first section tells of the onset of Krazy's problems. The second section deals with Ignatz's psychoanalysis. Zorro (maybe not a comic book hero, but definitely close in fashion) by Isabel Allende and It's Superman by Tom DeHaven were retellings that were faithful to the original characters and stories and both were delights to read. Krazy Kat is not, but it's not the fact that it is revisionist that makes this book fail; instead it's the fact that it's a mess.

The result is a mischievous trompe l'oeil of a book that, in recounting the further adventures of Krazy and Ignatz, forces us to reassess our own recent history and the shifting relationship between artists and their art. When we first meet Krazy again in Mr. Cantor's novel, she's looking back, somewhat sadly, at her past.

Krazy Kat. Krazy Kat adores Ignatz Mouse. She sees the bricks he hurls at her head as tokens of love, and each day Ignatz arranges a cunningly different method of delivery for his missile.

Cantor’s skill in this novel is to take the characters out of the comic strip – they now more or less live in the .
Though Ignatz and Krazy Kat are separate from them, it is clear that Dr Ignatz and Kate are ciphers for Ignatz and Krazy Kat. But all of this only touches the surface of why this inventive novel is so much fun.
