- Full Description
This second volume collects, in glorious full color and superior resolution, all 329 of Nemo’s escapades from 1910 to 1927. Through them, we delight not only in the splendor of Slumberland, a surreal benchmark, but also Winsor McCay’s pioneering panel layout and storytelling techniques, his timing and pacing, and extraordinary architectural detail. Rarely collected before: 1910-11, then McCay's jump to a new publisher and new title, "In the Land of Wonderful Dreams," from 1911-14. Then the return of Nemo in proper strips from 1924-27. Huge and sturdy hardcover format, perfect to delight in these detailed masterpieces.
At once an adventure story, visual delight, and piece of cultural history, this publication is a monument to one of the most innovative pioneers—and one of the most intrepid explorers—of comic history.
Little Nemo may be a diminutive hero of comic narrative, but he sure stands tall as one of the greatest voyagers of the 20th century. The master creation of Winsor McCay (1869–1934), this small and restless sleeper inspired generations of artists with his weekly adventures from bed to Slumberland, a dream realm of colorful companions, elaborate architecture, psychedelic scenery, and thrilling adventures.
Because different newspapers offered differing print quality and coloring, this collection is from the very best source: The New York Herald. They had the best and most modern printing presses in the country.
Short introduction in English, French and German.
This is the long-awaited second volume, completing Taschen's collection of Winsor Mccay The Complete Little Nemo 1905-1927.
