Collect the greatest fantasy comic strips from the earliest days of comics.

The dawn of the 20th century saw of technological advances that were only dreamed of decades before. One such advance was four-color printing, which brought to life stories inspired by both the technology of the time and the children’s fiction enjoyed by a burgeoning middle class. This confluence brought about a unique genre within a new art form—the Fantasy Comic Strip.

These pages were a Sunday staple for less than two decades, soon replaced by humorous family comics that more closely mirrored the modern society. But from 1900 to 1915, American newspapers offered some of the most fascinating comics ever printed. And while Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo in Slumberland is known worldwide, many of the great fantasy comics have virtually vanished — until now.

Presented here in the original size and colors are the complete comics of Lyonel Feininger—The Kin-der-Kids and Wee Willie Winkie’s World, along with the complete adventures of: The Explorigator by Henry Grant Dart; Nibsy the Newsboy by George McManus; Naughty Pete by Charles Forbell, plus full-color Dream of the Rarebit Fiend Sundays by Winsor McCay. With dozens more fantastical Sundays from, John Gruelle, Gustave Verbeek, Herbert Crowley, John R. Neill and others.
