Winsor McCay was an unparalleled genius who spawned an entire sub-culture that grew into something that now pervades the worldwide culture of comic books and cartoons.
What began as a labor of love for me as a comic fan and originally published in a limited edition hardcover collection of the entire run of Little Nemo in Slumberland. This new set of softcover editions represents a collection never equaled before or since in its comprehensiveness.
Two large format soft covers which encompass the entire run of Little Nemo in the first part of the 20th century including the short lived return of the strip in the late teens and twenties.
Included here is every known episode from October 13th, 1905, the very first, until August 15, 1909, never before published in complete collected form. In addition, another first: All forty-three episodes of McCay’s first color Sunday feature, Tales of the Jungle Imps, As published in the Cincinnati Enquirer in 1903. Bonus promotional material includes playbills, posters, Little Nemo merchandise pics and more. This is the most comprehensive collection ever of the material.
