Here are some Little Nemo strips by Winsor Zenic McCay, so unsettling and detailed. I will do a whole post on these one day, but here's a taster:

'Where has that cage gone! Oh! I was dreaming again, huh! I did get out of it anyway! Um!'
'There's that boy dreaming again. I heard a thump, I think he fell out of bed. Hey! Nemo!'
'Nephew! Oh!! What is it you want of me eh'


  1. i love this specific kind of art.

  2. I follow you and I hope you will reciprocate...
