GraphicNovelReporter Picks for Summer 2015
Winner of two Eisner Awards (for large edition)
? Best Anthology
? Best Publication Design

"Inventive work by some of comics' most distinguished artists makes these tributes a triumph." - Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW

"It's kid-friendly but sophisticated, so adults can enjoy it too, and it's a wallet-friendly alternative to the big book." - Comic Book Resources

"Each comic is reproduced in beautiful full color-some with bright, modern palettes; others with muted, antique hues. Though this homage is intended for a youth audience, plenty here will appeal to adults, particularly those familiar with McKay's work." - Booklist

"McCay as seen through the eyes of other artists is a visual treat." - ICv2, rating 5 Stars out of 5

The original broadsheet-sized edition, Little Nemo Dream Another Dream won Eisner Awards for Best Anthology and Best Publication Design.

"Each of these lovely dreamscapes is self-contained in a slim but gorgeously packaged volume...that's worth a look from lifelong comics fans, art appreciators and curious children alike." - Graphic Novel Reporter

"The price of this edition certainly can't be beat." - Geek Dad

"There are a number of incredibly clever and funny strips in this book that [are] especially effective in the hands of artists who are formalists and/or stylists." - Rob Clough for High-Low

"Little Nemo in Slumberland creator Winsor McCay might blush to see the awe-inspiring tribute his successors have assembled"
--NPR Best Books of 2014
