A masterful artist, Winsor McCay exceeded the conventional limitations of the comic strip to create Little Nemo in Slumberland – a surrealistic panorama of a boy’s adventures in dreamland. Employing brilliant colors and imaginative compositions to heighten the dreamlike state of his principal character, McCay took readers along with Nemo into fantasy worlds of both beauty and danger.
 
The first strip to be drawn in a realistic style and to utilize quality color printing, Little Nemo in Slumberland made its debut in Pulitzer’s New York Herald in 1905. When McCay moved to Hearst’s papers in 1911, he simply retitled his strip In the Wonderful Land of Dreams and continued Nemo’s nocturnal adventures until 1914. In 1924, Nemo reappeared in the Herald and remained there until 1927.
 
Besides creating his lavish strip as well as thousands of individual panels and political cartoons, McCay also contributed greatly to film animation. Although his earliest animated features were Nemo fantasies, his best-known movie cartoon remains Gertie the Trained Dinosaur. Next to George Herriman’s Krazy Kat, McCay’s work has probably received the widest recognition and praise.
