LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM update

We’re starting to wonder whether it’s even physically possible to fit all of this awesome in one book. New members of this Dream Team include…

SAM KIETH

The author of THE MAXX, ZERO GIRL, MY INNER BIMBO and a slew of other brilliantly off-beat creations, Sam is one of our very favorite cartoonists. Like McCay, he marries truly remarkable cartooning techniques and a sophisticated sensibility to a sense of childlike creativity and wonder. We can’t imagine a more fitting artist for a LITTLE NEMO tribute.

ZANDER CANNON

Known for his work with Alan Moore on TOP 10 and his terrifically original Image book THE REPLACEMENT GOD, Zander Cannon recently published the rich and compulsively readable graphic novel HECK, which was among our forty favorite books of 2013. We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to Slumberland.

MATT HUYNH

In addition to producing gorgeous calligraphic illustrations for THE NEW YORK TIMES, ROLLING STONE and ESQUIRE, Matt Huynh has published a number of beautiful comics including MA and HARRI. His Nemo strip is an ink-washed nightmare, and we’re proud to present it to you.

The Locust Moon Top 40: November 2013

40. DELUSIONAL

This art & sequential bits & bobs book from Farel Dalrymple & AdHouse made our Top 40 back when it was announced. Now that we’ve finally gotten our copies to pore over, we want to put it on ALL the Top 40s.

39. The Fantagraphics Kickstarter

Because we all need our continued supply of Uncle Scrooge.

38. BOARDWALK EMPIRE

The hopeless glory of season 4 ended with no winners, only losers. Pretty appropriate for a show set in Atlantic City.

37. DISAPPEARANCE DIARY

Hideo Azuma’s autobiographical chronicle of a cartoonist dropping off the map and going on the lam from relationships, responsibilities, and sobriety is a fascinating and oddly adorable illustration of the kind of personality with which some of us can identify a little too much.

36. Calvin & Hobbes Dancing

We’d usually say that Bill Watterson’s opus is hallowed ground upon which fan art must not tread, but this animation of Calvin & Hobbes dancing is delightful, touching, and utterly true to its origins.

35. This Mountain Man

I hope to one day also stand in court and declare, “I AM THE NATURAL MAN.”

34. THE ART OF RUBE GOLDBERG

This book about Rube Goldberg is also an ACTUAL FUNCTIONING PAPERCRAFT RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE! How cool is that?
