How Winsor McCay changed the world

Colin Druce-McFadden writes over at “16 ways cartoonist Winsor McCay quietly changed the world

So why did Google drudge up a name that most of us never knew? Same-day reporting mentioned that he was an animation pioneer, influenced Walt Disney, was a vaudevillian comedian and things of that nature. To my mind, this hardly does the memory of Mr. McCay justice. This man was not just a pioneer or an early adapter in the realms of comics or cartoons. Winsor McCay was the big bang that set the twin worlds of comics and cartoons in motion.
