Read full description of the books:
I've had this for a 2-3 weeks, just paging through the large format, 342 page hardcover collection of McCay's "Little Nemo in Slumberland" and "In the Land of Wonderful Dreams" strips from 1905-1914. If you are looking for classics in comics history, those who helped developed comics theory and craft, this is indispensable. I knew about him, had some familiarity, but thought I would finally take a good look, and this is THE collection of his to read. And Katzenjammer Kids they are not. In some ways it is hard to believe they existed in strip format for as long as they did, as surreal and bizarre as they generally are. Amazingly drawn and crafted, with remarkable detail, they essentially are dream states, dream stories, and not really for kids in a conventional sense. They are about the imagination, and fantasy.
I almost went blind reading them, the print is so small. So that's where Chris Ware got his idea for his minuscule print (as in Jimmy Corrigan and in the Acme collections) and his nostalgia for this period. I am sure Seth loves McCay, too. When I read Jimmy Corrigan again I will read it with some Little Nemo for sure, they speak to each other. I would say that the stories don't really advance, don't create a coherent narrative, but hey, it's about dreams, not narrative.
This is awesome, so glad I took the time with it. Great book for comics scholars and artists who want to know the history.
