    1. Really incredible full page newspaper comics from the turn of the 20th Century, reprinted in full size The book is about 3 1 2 feet tall, making it both an imposing read and incredibly expensive Fortunately, my library had a copy see if yours does too You will not regret it.Nemo is a young boy who has fantastic, immaculately envisioned and detailed dreams The plots for these comics are fairly straightforward and silly, with Nemo either falling out of bed or being woken up by his parents at the e [...]


    2. It is the GREATEST comics EVER.The gist Nemo is a kid who constantly dreams about going to the kingdom of dream But in each adventure, he keeps getting himself into this bizarre fantastic surreal kinda dangerous situation and on the very LAST PANEL, it always shows Nemo wakes up and falls off his bed.Brilliant, brilliant artwork by Winsor McCay I don t know where he got his ideas If you can t get this book, just Google the strips It s always big and colorful and Nemo always met something new be [...]


    3. One of my all time favorite comics This edition is absolutely gorgeous and big This coffee table book is nearly the size of a coffee table and I partially expected little legs to fold out of the bottom like Kramer s coffe table book on coffee tables Winsor McKay is a true artist.


    4. McCay s layouts are wonderful and still fresh after a century of time I found the repetitiveness of the story a bit boring to read straight through Yet it makes sense when I think of the original context where these drawings were released one at a time each successive Sunday for a period of years Some of the characters and scenarios were quite inventive and funny Yet I could not really stomach the black face caricatures and figures like Yap Though socially acceptable in White American society at [...]


    5. I d read the high praise that Chris Ware and Art Spiegelman had for Winsor McCay, and reading these comics for the first time, it s hard not to be amazed that they were created in the first decade of the medium the distance between them and Ware and Spiegelman feels very short For me, the difference is the emotional resonance of the contemporary works formally and visually, there s little ground McCay hadn t already covered McCay experiments with different arrangements of text and image relying [...]


    6. This colossal 16 x 21 volume reprints the best of Winsor McCay s earliest Little Nemo in Slumberland Sunday pages, in their original broadsheet size The thick archival stock has a matte finish that captures the original look and feel of newsprint but provides a smooth, acid free, alternative with none of the various negatives Seeing McCay s Art Nouveau inspired linework at the size he intended it to be seen is a revelation his endlessly imaginative pages seem so far ahead of their time, introduc [...]


    7. So far as I know, this is the first book which reprints Winsor McCay s classic comic strip as it first appeared in full sheet newspaper dimensions What a difference it makes McCay was the first genius level artist of the comic strip His colors, his imagination, and his optical inventiveness are unrivaled to this day That says a lot, considering all the competition Be forewarned this book is so large that it won t even fit on a normal bookshelf I love owing big books despite the storage issues Th [...]


    8. The story revolves around a boy name Nemo and follows him around in his dreams, accompanied with the expressive visuals such as the one above I ll never forget the second time I ever looked through this book I ll never forget the first time, as well, but it wasn t until the second time in which I really examined its beauty A beautiful collection of comic strips that only broadens a child s imagination A perfect introduction to children who have seen the literature style of comics before, and gre [...]


    9. I love this book The format is fantastic, as it is the size of the original work, the Sunday paper And it s in full color


    10. Por qu no me sorprende que la basura de Librarian que hab a arrasado con bocha de ediciones internacionales de varios comics de superh roes tambi n haya eliminado esta De momento, la vuelvo a subir, y espero que al infame Deleted Member lo pise un auto.


    11. to see where chris ware comics in general comes from this is the edition to get it is enormous just a huge book that reproduces with accuracy the way the nemo strip originally appeared in the newspaper a thing of beauty fun to read and lovely to look at.


    12. Truly astounding Little Nemo is among the most beautiful and whimsical comics in history This treatment of printing the strips at original size massive and color matched to the original works of art is nothing less than a labor of love and a publishing gem.


    13. This is about the coolest most fantastic book ever, and it s gigantic and beautiful to boot I am constantly looking at it and marveling at the humanity that can burst forth and create such a work of art Rapturous.








    14. One of the most beautiful illustrators of all time You can still see the influence of McCay in Disney,Sendak and Sesame Street.
