Little Nemo book collection to expand

Coming next summer will be a second installment of Winsor McCay’s classic Little Nemo.  The popular “Little Nemo in Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays” did so well that a second volume will be created that will include Winsor’s work from 1910 to 1914 and 1924-1926. The volume will be 120-130 pages.

Also of note, Sunday Press Books, the publisher behind the Nemo collection is also planning on a seven or eight volume  collection of “The Best of American Newspaper Comics” which will include reproductions or restored comics from the Yellow Kid in 1895 up through 1960.

This is truly a beautiful book which publishes Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo in Slumberland series in the large format that they were originally published in at the turn of the last century.
Anyone interested in truly studying McCay’s work (which I highly recommend every cartoonist do), this excellent collection is the very best way to do it.
I wouldn’t mind seeing new published collections of his other strips like Nemo’s predecessor, Dreams of A Rarebit Fiend and his limited run strips Little Sammy Sneeze and Hungry Henrietta.
I also recommend reading Winsor McCay’s biography by John Canemaker, Winsor McCay His Life and Art.
