I really have to get a proper calendar...I meant to start a whole McKay series on the occason of his 140th birthday just last month.

Oh well, better late than never...

Too cool. I just love Little Nemo in Slumberland!

McCay was amazing. I have a big collection of Little Nemo edited by Bill Blackbeard that I picked up in the early '80s - I read a few pages every night to my little boys at bedtime. They grew up with Little Nemo, the lucky saps.

Gertie still looks good today. I wish they weren't selling the original rice-papers piecemeal, it would be great if they were all in one place.

Whose's selling the original rice papers?

They pop up at ComicCon and elsewhere, and Van Eaton Galleries has been flogging them for while. I would love to have enough scratch to get 'em, but they're way beyond my budget.
