Here it is--the first comprehensive omnibus collection of rapper/cartoonist Keith Knight's Harvey Award-winning, semi-autobiographical comic strip, the K Chronicles. An unabashedly provocative mix of political and social satire, it tackles such touchy subjects as racism, violence, and sex with a self-deprecating humor, personal honesty and light-hearted goofiness rarely found in a newspaper comic. The result is accessible yet subversive, compassionate and political, without being preachy. Reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes, Knight's drawing style is fluid and dynamic, and his great strength is the deftness of his wide-ranging wit-simultaneously light-hearted and wild, clever and conscious.
* Knight's award-winning art has appeared in various publications worldwide, including Salon.com, ESPN the Magazine, Funny Times, L.A. Weekly, MAD Magazine, and others.
