The Nocturnal Adventure Continues...

Nemo is back! All his Slumberland escapades from 1910 to 1927
Little Nemo may be a diminutive hero of comic narrative, but he sure stands tall as one of the greatest voyagers of the 20th century. The master creation of Winsor McCay (1869–1934), this small and restless sleeper inspired generations of artists with his weekly adventures from bed to Slumberland, a dream realm of colorful companions, elaborate architecture, psychedelic scenery, and thrilling adventures.

This second volume collects, in glorious full color and XXL resolution, all 329 of Nemo’s nocturnal escapades from 1910 to 1927. Through them, we delight not only in the splendor of Slumberland, a surreal benchmark for Robert Crumb and Federico Fellini, but also McCay’s pioneering panel layout and storytelling techniques, his timing and pacing, and extraordinary architectural detail.

At once an adventure story, visual delight, and piece of cultural history, this publication is a monument to one of the most innovative pioneers—and one of the most intrepid explorers—of comic history.

The XXL clothbound volume features all episodes from:
  • The New York Herald years (1910–1911, “Little Nemo in Slumberland”) including the legendary Airship Adventures
  • The William Randolph Hearst years (1911–1914, “In the Land of Wonderful Dreams”)
  • The New York Herald Tribune years (1924–1927, “Little Nemo in Slumberland”)

Over the past two decades, Braun has compiled one of the most extensive collections on the history of comics. Since 2008, he has curated several museum exhibits on this topic, including a comprehensive retrospective on the work of Winsor McCay in 2012/2013.

Un vrai enchantement

A travers ces pages aussi géantes que détaillées, on risque à chaque instant de tomber dans cet univers colossal et merveilleux si on se penche un peu trop sur le livre ! Un vrai plaisir.

The quality of the printing is amazing and the size is generous to catch every detail. I started to read the preliminary essay and it's revelatory. I'm learning a lot while having fun. Such a great edition!

A fabulous book, in the true sense

David B, October 27, 2021
Little Nemo often pops up in Books about the history of comics but all too often the inclusion is frustratingly brief ang accompanies tiny illustrations . It's wonderful to be able these works of art as they should be seen, full size and with terrific attention to detail.

Amazing book

Un bel écrin pour ce père fondateur de la bd

Gaius, October 27, 2021
Ce magnifique livre est impressionnant par bien des aspects. La qualité des reproductions fidèles aux couleurs originelles et le grand format proche de celui de la première publication des strips dans les quotidiens de l’époque permettent de bien saisir l’intelligence de la composition et la qualité de la narration de L’auteur. Un bel ouvrage historique dans lequel je prends beaucoup de plaisir à plonger.
