LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM
by Bill Sienkiewicz, Jim Rugg, Box Brown, Denis Kitchen, Paul Pope, Craig Thompson, Farel Dalrymple, et al
Published by Locust Moon Press
Over 100 of today’s best cartoonists pay tribute to comics’ greatest innovator, Winsor McCay, in one giant book. In this 144-page, 16” x 21” hardcover, many of the world’s finest creators have dreamed up new Little Nemo in Slumberland strips, following their own voices down paths lit by McCay.
Taking on the same giant, broadsheet newspaper-sized canvas as McCay, artists such as Michael Allred, Paul Pope, Yuko Shimizu, J.H. Williams III, Charles Vess, David Mack, J.G. Jones, Craig Thompson, Paolo Rivera, Carla Speed McNeil, Bill Sienkiewicz, P. Craig Russell, Ronald Wimberly, Denis Kitchen, Jill Thompson, Stephen R. Bissette, Gabriel Bá & Fábio Moon, Farel Dalrymple, John Cassaday, Peter Bagge, Cliff Chiang, and over a hundred more have all done some of the very best work of their illustrious careers.
This is a love song for Winsor McCay, Little Nemo, and the infinite possibility of comics.

Oh, best Ignatz co-hosting of all time! Or at least since Keith Knight co-hosted with a bottle of vodka! Certainly the most work ever put into choreography, mnemonic memory devices and entrance music. :)
I seem to recall Keith Knight having tequila, actually. I remember since that was the year they let me present an award and all the presenters had to do a shot. I was nursing a gnarly 24 hour hangover at the time and nearly threw up.
I could be misremembering since that was a decade ago and I was drinking a lot back then.

Tom Neely is a painter and cartoonist whose art has been featured in galleries in California and New York, in dozens of magazines and literary journals, and on album covers. His debut graphic novel, The Blot, earned him an Ignatz Award and made it onto several of the industry’s “Best of 2007” lists as well as the Comics Journal’s “Best Graphic Novels of the Decade 2000–2010.” He authored the Melvins comic book, Your Disease Spread Quick, a collection of comic strip poems called Brilliantly Ham-fisted, and the painted novel, The Wolf. Image Comics recently released his series, The Humans, a fantastic series about biker apes.
But he is best known for the cult-hit indie comic book Henry & Glenn Forever, which he created with his artist collective the Igloo Tornado.
Starring notorious muscle-bound punk/metal dudes Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (with a little help from soft rockers Hall and Oates), Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever is a love story to end all love stories. And here for the first time is the complete compiled collection of the graphic novel that details the fictitious romance of these real-life music icons. This tongue-in-cheek graphic novel satire is filled with adventure, subtle references, and humor, and the exhibition features dozens of pinup art and full-color covers from the original series along with many original comic art pages and new pieces inspired by Henry & Glenn.
“The tender care Neely and a rotating cast of guest authors bring to the stories makes Forever and Ever so much more than a one-note gag — Glenn’s tantrums are risible; Henry’s patience is divine — and there are inside jokes galore for fans of heavy music.” —Chris Martins, Spin
