Tuesday Tease

Special treat this week: another page for you from our biggest labor of love, LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM!

Toby Cypress has wowed us consistently, from the epically badass RODD RACER to his newest, killer series from Dark Horse, THE WHITE SUITS. Toby came by the store last week to celebrate the release of THE WHITE SUITS’ first issue (of which we still have some signed copies – get one!), and we had a grand old time. He also pitched in on our little anthology mag QUARTER MOON to provide one of our favorite covers to date. We can’t get enough of this guy.

So enjoy the glorious, beautiful insanity of Nemo’s dreams unbound in Toby’s vision of Slumberland:

LittleNemo_LocustMoon_TobyCypressToby will be selling prints  – and if you’re lucky, maybe even the original art! – of his NEMO contribution soon, so look out for those at the Out of Step Arts website.

Here’s a glimpse of that original art in progress, which Toby shared with us:

And remember, you’ll see that beast among good company this fall in LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM. News on how and where you can reserve your copy of the book will be coming before you know it.

LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM update

The dream draws closer, and the Slumbering Army grows ever more fearsome. We are joined by…

MORITAT

A master of well-chosen detail and descendant of the likes of Masamune Shirow, the artist of ELEPHANTMEN and ALL-STAR WESTERN will bring his gloriously precise hyper-reality and iconic image-making to the spires and turrets of Slumberland.

ANDREW MACLEAN

The artist of HEAD LOPPER, MEATSPACE and DEPARTMENT O will animate our dreams with his clean yet writhingly alive line-work. His Nemo is a frightening, grim fairy tale, a nightmare lost in an gray-blue forest.

FRANK GIBSON AND BECKY DREISTADT

The web-comic auteurs behind the swooningly gorgeous, whimsically charming hand-painted strip TINY KITTEN TEETH have joined us, bringing incandescent colors and idiosyncratic charm worthy of McCay himself.
