Read full description of the books:
Winsor McCay's graphic masterpiece of dreams and fantasy, Little Nemo in Slumberland, comes alive in this new anthology. As astonishing today as when it was published almost a century ago, Little Nemo is considered by many critics and artists to be the greatest comic strip of all time. Though the strip only ran intermittenly from 1905 to 1927, Winsor McCay continues to be honored as the master of the art form for his brilliant concept, color, and design. Drawn in art nouveau style, the weekly strip detailed the dreams of a six-year-old boy whose fantasy world was filled with adventure, humor, joy, fear, monsters, princesses, and surprises at every turn. Each page is a self-enclosed episode where Little Nemo encounters memorable characters, unbelievable joys, and menacing dangers, all within a stunning landscape of beauty and majesty called Slumberland. In The Best of Little Nemo, editor Richard Marschall has selected close to 200 of the very best strips written and illustrated by McCay. All are reproduced in color, in an oversized format to fit the scale of their original newspaper layout, and printed exactly as they first appeared. Also included are homages to Winsor McCay written by such creative masters as Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes), Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Maurice Sendak, animator Chuck Jones, and several others.
