Dream of the Rarebit Fiend: The Saturdays

Checker’s continuing attempt to reprint everything that Windsor McCay produced in his prolific life continues with this landscape format book of oversized strips. These aren’t short and sweet like the dailies, but feature longer stories, usually consisting of three or four rows of panels. Most importantly, the strips are reproduced at 98 per cent of their original size.

Unlike his later Little Nemo strips, these are morality plays aimed at grown-ups, usually warning against the dangers of over-eating cheese before going to bed. Originally printed from 1904 to 1911, it’s another collection that no McCay fan would want to be without.

  1. I just wanted to remind all Winsor McCay fans that Checker Book Publishing Group will be releasing Little Nemo in Slumberland Volume 2 soon. This book will contain the extremely rare 1924 to 1926 run of the Little Nemo strip in full color. If you need more information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
