The Saturday Comics: More Little Nemo Homages

26 May

May 26, 2012

Some time back I featured Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay. Go ahead and click on this link, I’ll wait.

Towards the bottom I showed some modern homages to the classic strip:

Spongebob:

Sandman:

Since then I have come across a few more.

Here is one from Mutts, which is a modern classic and a strip you should check out, which you can by clicking this link.

Next up are two pages from  Superman Secret Files and Origins #1, which was published in 1998. Stuart Immonen did the honors here:

There are more pages but this gives you the flavor. If you don’t know Little Nemo, you are clearly missing out on a strip that casts a long shadow.

    I get the others, mostly, except for the Superman / Brainiac / Luthor one. I guess it’s a callback to the artistic influence there.

      That’s right, more similar in art than content. There were more pages to the stories though that made the writing slightly more in the Nemo style.

        Little Nemo would be would be more fitting for Doctor Who or even a Star Trek comic than Superman. 😉 Possibly. 😀

            I have to write this idea down, then do some more research on Little Nemo. Be back in 2 or 3 hours….. 😉 😀

    I love it!

    By the way, I was talking to a friend who said her daughter in is the US now for what she called a “Comic Book Convention.” She didn’t know when, where or any other details. Are you going?

      There are so many, none around here at the moment. The Big Apple comic con is, I think, in October. The San Diego Comic Con, which might be the biggest and most prestigous, is probably coming up soon. I am almost toally out of the comics loop and wouldn’t go to another. Just no interest in comics any more.
