Winsor McCay began his artistic career in the 1890's, yet the sheer innovation of his images still leaps from the pages. He was a master illustrator, with a talent for draftsman-like precision, natural perspecitve, brilliant color theory and an imagination that has never yet been rivaled.From Booklist:
Conceptually rich, gorgeously executed, Little Nemo was the first artistic triumph of the newspaper comic strip. Its very first weekly installment, in 1905, set its modus operandi. The child hero dreams fantastic adventures, only to abruptly awaken in the last panel. Within each installment, McCay displayed his daunting graphic skills and vast imagination. It took decades for other comics artists to approach Nemo's visual élan and formal brilliance, and in many ways the strip remains unmatched to this day. Tales of the Jungle Imps, an earlier McCay feature that ran nearly a year in 1903, rounds out this volume; it is notable largely for demonstrating the development of McCay's style but also, unfortunately, for its racially stereotypical depiction of African "natives," which also mars Nemo, though to a lesser extent. These strips have been reprinted by various publishers over the years, but this volume and its forthcoming companion, which collect Nemo's entire eight-year run, represent an affordable opportunity for libraries to own an indispensable landmark of comics history complete.
