Little Nemo 1905-1914 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the legendary adventures of Little Nemo in one big volume. As an homage to Winsor McCay's masterpieces, this edition is the first to combine all the episodes, from 1905 to 1914, in their original colors. It spirits the reader on a journey through the wonderful dream worlds of the little hero in pajamas.

Synopsis:

 Four-Color Fantasy

 

Super heroes from the Atom to Zatara: 75 years of DC Comics

 

 In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson published New Fun No. 1, the first comic book with all-new, original material—at a time when comic books were mere repositories for the castoffs of the newspaper strips. What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way to becoming the mythology of our time—the 20th century’s answer to Atlas or Zorro. More than 40,000 comic books later, in honor of the publisher’s 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics, in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. More than 2,000 images—covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles—are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they’ve never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-depth essays trace the company’s history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing.

 Year-by-year timelines that fold out to nearly four feet and biographies of the legends who built DC make this an invaluable reference for any comic book fan.

About the Author

McCay was one of the earliest masters of modern cartooning and animation. Born in Canada in 1867, McCay began his career as an illustrator in Cincinnati before relocating to New York to take up his pen for William Randolph Hearst's New York paper. He is best known for his long-running newspaper strip, Little Nemo in Slumberland.
