Before his remarkable Litttle Nemo in Slumberland, McCay created two strips starring young children.
Today, Winsor McCay (1867-1934) is universally acknowledged as the first master of both the comic strip and the animated cartoon. Although invented by others, both genres were developed into enduring popular art of the highest imagination through McCay's innovative genius.
From the publishers of the widely-acclaimed deluxe reprint series Little Nemo In Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays!, this book features all of the Little Sammy Sneeze color pages (1904-05) plus Hungry Henrietta, McCay's other comic, which appeared on the back of Sammy in the Sunday New York Herald. The unique style of this book presents two other "flipside" comics of 1904: The Woozlebeasts and The Upside Downs, along with the complete 27-chapter saga of Hungry Henrietta. All comics are digitally restored in the original size and colors.
