I knew about Little Nemo and Gertie the Dinosaur, but this book exposed me to so much This book is absolutely one of the most enthralling reads I ve recently come across McCay s life story is the stuff of legend Truly an inspirational figure in American history. Art was wonderful, writing a bit too lengthy. I believe John Canemaker s book is probably the best biography of a cartoonist ever written, and remains one of the best books on comic sequential art ever written. This is a great book about the history of the comic from the early part of the 20th century Extensive.
