Little Nemo

Little Nemo was a comic that appeared in Sunday papers in the 1930. They are undoubtedly the weirdest, trippiest, most peculiar, inventive and dream-like comics ever. Each page is memorable, a complete dream unto itself. They make R. Crumb and the LSD-laced hippy underground comics seem tame. While several books reprint the entire series, this reproduction retains the comic’s original scale, which you really need to fully appreciate the eyeball-slapping impact these masterworks have. It’s easily the largest book I own. You COULD slice one of these books up and have 30 exquisitely printed two-side posters to give out.
