Little Nemo in Slumberland!


We’re a day late on this, but to Grace and I dedicate this to my father, A.K.A. “Grandpa.”

I was  fortunate to have a varied education in comics and comic strips. My dad and I didn’t always agree on everything we liked (I appreciate, but don’t share his love of all things Hank Ketchum and he not as fervent as I about Jack Kirby), but the magical worlds created by certified genius Winsor McCay was more than common ground. The way he was able to use every inch of the space allowed to create worlds of boundless imagination remains virtually unmatched.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad. Thanks for introducing me to the world of comic illustration. (See, I was paying attention.)
