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.

The definitive edition of Little Nemo. The large pages allow one to really see all of the details of this amazing comic strip. Winsor McKay was a true artist and a pioneer in cartooning. This is a must have for anyone who loves comic strips.
