Winsor McCay, great art and funky balloons
Newspaper strips today, with their truncated size and editorial limitations, are but a sad echo of their former glory. So I should not let too many days go by without a sample of the classics. KRAZY KAT. THIMBLE THEATRE. POGO. PRINCE VALIANT. TERRY AND THE PIRATES. MAD. You know, the good stuff.
From 1911, another of Nemo's perplexing dreams. Did that kid eat Welsh rarebit EVERY night or what? He had some imagination. And, as much as I love Winsor McCay's work, I wouldn't mind if he had let an assistant letter the dialogue balloons, they go beyond disorganized.
