Little Nemo In Slumberland

Here is a great quote from a great site about Winsor Mc Cay, and his amazingly groundbreaking comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland.

His most famous work, Little Nemo in Slumberland. Little Nemo , which ran from 1905 to 1911, is the pinnacle of comic strip art in the first decade of the 20th century. It displays an unparalleled application of Art Nouveau graphic style, translating sinewy, irregular forms and rhythms into a delightfully decorative comic strip design. The strips related the fantastic adventures which befell the child Little Nemo, who always woke up in the last panel of the comic strip.
