    Regular Price: $95.00

    Sale Price $39.95

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. Learn More
