The Knight Life

The last couple of years, Keith Knight has been doing a daily comic strip called The Knight Life, which is basically an extension of the weekly comic strip that Keith used to do, called The K Chronicles, that appeared in alternative weekly newspapers everywhere (and is collected in several nice trade paperbacks and in the nice massive 500 page collection from Dark Horse called The Complete K Chronicles). Last week, The Knight Life "Chivalry ain't Dead", which is the first The Knight Life daily collection arrived and clocks in at just over 200 pages for just $17.99.
The Knight Life, like The K Chronicles, is a very funny cartoon strip about the cartoonist himself, his family (which has grown), his friends, as well as Keith Knight's humorous insights into the world around us. The Knight Life "Chivalry ain't Dead" also collects the Sunday strips in color - for those of you unfamiliar with Keith Knight's strip check out: for some examples of his cartoon magic and see why Garry Trudeau (Doonesbury) and Aaron McGruder (The Boondocks) sing their praises for Keith Knight.

And I'm happy to report that Keith Knight will be a guest at this year's Las Vegas Clark County Comic Festival to be held Saturday, November 6th, so mark your calendars accordingly!
