Here Comes Kitty is a dark circus of the very best kind . . . It pierces the heart with its mixture of love and going.” —Bhanu Kapil

In this wildly irreverent collage narrative, artist Richard Kraft reassembles "Kapitan Kloss," a Cold War comic about a Polish spy infiltrating the Nazis, to orchestrate a multiplicity of voices into joyous cacophony. Like an Indian miniature painting, each comic book page is densely layered, collapsing foreground and background, breaking the frame and merging time.
