Abstract:

"This book is the first definitive collection of McCay's earliest accomplishments in newspaper cartooning, containing Dream of The Rarebit Fiend, Tales of the Jungle Imps, Little Sammy Sneeze, and A Pilgrim's Progress. The four series that are included in Early Works showcase McCay's sophisticated artwork and storytelling styles. Jungle Imps is the only collection that was not written by McCay. It was originally published in the Cincinnati Enquirer in 1903, and the Sunday editor of the Enquirer, George Randolph Chester, wrote the stories in verse, which McCay then illustrated. Jungle Imps married McCay's first foray into the world of the newspaper comic strip, to be followed by Little Sammy Sneeze in 1904 and Dream of the Rarebit Fiend in 1905, both of which are also collected here. McCay's unique manipulation of the comic art form, with bird's eye views and unusual perspectives, combined with his unorthodox subject matter, were responsible for the extreme popularity of his work during his lifetime as well as its enduring appeal ad influence on emerging generations of cartoonists."--back cover.
