- Full Description
An impressive, king-sized book that was rather expensive originally, but now a true bargain. Merkl explores the influences McCay brought to this genre--including McCay's own Gertie the Dinosaur animated shorts-- the animation in 1933's King Kong, tracing our love of dinosaurs and monster movies down through the decades. Wonderful reproduction, dozens of previously unseen "lost" full color McCay pages from 1937, plus wonderful "Dino" strips direct from proofs. Breathtakingly designed, each page is overflowing with amazing imagery--most rarely seen or never seen before. Very, very cool.
Dedicated sleuthing unearthed a never-published series of Sunday pages by Winsor McCay that was lost following the artist's untimely death. Titled simply Dino, it opens a surprising new window into McCay's work and here it's showcased from the original art, which serves to introduce this examination of our fascination with dinosaurs and King Kong over the decadees. 650 reproductions and photos, 250 in full color.
An essential volume for everyone interested in the development of the comic strip--and our never-ending fascination with dinosaurs!
