About the book: http://locustmoon.com/littlenemo/

Winsor McCay was perhaps the greatest cartoonist of all time, and the Sunday newspaper strip Little Nemo in Slumberland is his most enduring creation. Detailing the adventures of its titular character in The Land of Wonderful Dreams, the early twentieth century opus is one of the most inventive and visually stunning works of American art. A century later, the comic medium is still racing to keep up with the richness, draftsmanship, imagination, and wonder of McCay’s fantastic storytelling and wild Slumberland universe.

In Locust Moon Press's LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM, many of the world’s finest cartoonists have paid tribute to the master and his masterpiece by creating 118 new Little Nemo strips, following their own voices down paths lit by McCay.
