Little Nemo wins Eisner Award

Best Archival Collection/Project award

Our favorite pyjama-clad protagonist triumphed at the 2015 Eisner awards on Friday, July 10th in San Diego. The Oscars of the comic industry awarded our Winsor McCay’s Complete Little Nemo the Best Archival Collection/Project award, recognizing the first complete collection of all 549 Little Nemo episodes in full, glorious color.

The anthology is accompanied by an exploration of McCay’s groundbreaking life and work from art historian and comics expert Alexander Braun, who also discusses the immense, if under-estimated, art historical influence of the Nemo dream narrative as a proto-Surrealism. Suffice to look at Little Nemo’s wins in Eisner’s Best Anthology (Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream) and Best Limited Series (IDW series Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland) series to see that our delight at the diminutive dreamer sure shows no signs of abating!
