SHANOWER & RODRIGUEZ ‘RETURN TO SLUMBERLAND’ IN GORGEOUS NEW ‘LITTLE NEMO’ SERIES THIS WEEK
By Chris Sims
Just in case you’re not up to speed on classic newspaper strips, Winsor McKay’s Little Nemo is one of the most innovative comics of the 20th century. Originally running in newspapers from 1905 to 1926, it was arguably one of the first real masterpieces of the form, with McKay’s surreal dreamscapes taking the form of beautiful imagery and page layouts that creators are still trying to recreate today.
Now, Nemo is returning to the comics page in Return To Slumberland. Not to be confused with the forthcoming Dream Another Dream anthology, this new series from Eric Shanower, Gabriel Rodriguez and Nelson Daniel launches this week from IDW Publishing, and it is beautiful. Seriously, just hands down one of the prettiest comics I’ve seen in a long time, and even though the first few pages don’t quite get into the strangeness of walking beds and stair-step city skylines, I get the feeling that all of that stuff shows up right where the preview ends.
Can’t wait for this.

Tom recently finished Bioshock Infinite, and we’ve been marathoning Card Captor Sakura since the blurays came in.
The Clow staff reminded me of Songbird’s face because of the creepy dead side-eyes. Then this happened. It’s terrible.

Really shit photos but it’s hard to take mirror shots when you can’t raise your arms. It’s also difficult to put on a hat. Historical fashion is the most restricting fashion - literally.
I need to sort this wig out because it’s pretty crazy and unflattering at the moment. AND I have to add eyes to the ferret fur (not picture) but i’m just about done with this project!
It was more complicated and challenging then I had expected, lot’s of bumps in the road but all and all I’m happy with how it turned out!
