Greetings from the land of dreams, Martians! Today, we’re sharing these awesome full-color Little Nemo in Slumberland strips from 1908. That’s right: 1908. Dude, that was a long-ass time ago! Before man had walked on the moon. Before airplanes streaked across the sky. It was before Led Zeppelin! But the imagination of artist Winsor McCay got many people as dazed and confused as they needed to be.
Little Nemo has been collected a few times. I like the “So Many Splendid Sundays” Vol. 1 & 2 because they are printed on large pages like the originals. But if you are looking for a complete collection, you want either the six-volume set published by Fantagraphics, or the two-volume hardcover collections by Checker.
