winsor mccay vil vi altid forbinde med little nemo, avistegningerne, dreams of the rarebit fiend, og selvfølgelig en af de tidligste tegnefilm, gertie the dinosaur. til næste sommer vil fanta udgive mere paleontologisk materiale af mccay, en tabt stribe, dino, der nylig er blevet opdaget. striberne er trykt direkte fra originalerne, og giver os dermed en hidtil usét detaljerigdom fra winsor mccay. forfatteren ulrich merkl beskriver også mccay’s indflydelser som filmen king kong, og den moderne skyskraber arkitektur i new york. så der er tale om en heftig tegneserie cum kaffebordsbog, og denne må siges at være 2015’s foreløbigt største sensation, svært at se, hvordan noget forlag i verden vil kunne overgå denne opdagelse. 304 siders primo mccay, juni 2015. glæd jer!

amazon.com review:

This is a deluxe, oversize collection of Winsor McCay’s (Little Nemo) “lost” comic strip.

Winsor McCay, the creator of Little Nemo in Slumberland, is internationally renowned as a pioneer in comics and animation. But author Ulrich Merkl’s dedicated sleuthing has unearthed a never-published strip by McCay that was lost following the artist’s untimely death. Titled simply Dino, it opens a surprising new window into McCay’s life and work and showcases his exquisitely beautiful and delicate delineations (exactingly reproduced from the original art). Merkl explores the influences McCay brought to the strip—including McCay’s own Gertie the Dinosaur animated shorts, the animation in 1933’s King Kong, and the growth of New York City from the Holland Tunnel to the Empire State Building —and traces our love of dinosaurs and monster movies down through the decades. Breathtakingly designed, each page of this deluxe oversize volume is overflowing with amazing imagery, with more than 650 photographs and illustrations (more than 250 in color) — most of them seen here for the first time in a century! An essential volume for everyone interested in the development of the comic strip — and our never-ending fascination with dinosaurs! Full-color illustrations throughout
