Addendum: Winsor McCay (1871-1934)

I made a point of not posting a link to my Amazon wishlist this year, figuring what with the belly-up economy and all, it was certainly no time to talk of Cephalopodmas. Nonetheless, a few gifts have come in, and I am grateful for them all. But I am especially pleased with a gift from corucia, a thick volume collecting all of cartoonist Winsor McCay's Little Nemo strips from 1905-1914. I've long been a fan of Mccay's, admiring Little Nemo and Tales of a Rarebit Fiend and Gertie the Dinosaur, but I've only had occasion to read a few strips here and there. Now I can read all of Little Nemo, at least. McCay is a miracle, though this was hardly recognized in his lifetime.

Here is some of McCay's animated work:

Gertie the Dinosaur (1914)

Gertie on Tour (surviving fragment, 1914)

The Centaurs (fragment, 1921)
