The dawn of the 20th century saw technological advances that were only dreamed of decades before. One such advance was four-color printing, which brought to life stories inspired by both the new technologies of the era and the children's fiction enjoyed by a growing middle class. This confluence brought about a unique genre within a new art form-the Fantasy Comic Strip.
These pages were a Sunday staple for less than two decades, soon replaced by humorous family comics that more closely mirrored the modern society. But from 1900 to 1915, American newspapers offered some of the most fascinating comics ever printed. And while Winsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland is known worldwide, many of the great fantasy comics have virtually vanished-until now.
BONUS - Each book comes with a full-size replica of the 1906 Chicago Tribune Sunday Supplement announcing their new comics.
Read information about the authorWas an American cartoonist and animator, best known for the comic strip Little Nemo (begun 1905) and the animated cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur (1914). For legal reasons, he worked under the pen name Silas on the comic strip Dream of the Rarebit Fiend.
A prolific artist, McCay's pioneering early animated films far outshone the work of his contemporaries, and set a standard followed by Walt Disney and others in later decades. His comic strip work has influenced generations of artists, including creators such as William Joyce, André LeBlanc, Moebius, Maurice Sendak, Chris Ware and Bill Watterson.
