I've bought other Little Nemo in Slumberland collections including the complete run put out by Fantagraphics, but nothing beats
this beauty from Sunday Press. Printed at the size that the original Sundays appeared in newspapers, looking at these can be overwhelming now, I can't imagine what it must have been like for kids being greeted to this masterpiece in in 1907.
Its huge!

One of my favourite actors released one of my favourite Calypso albums! Robert Mitchum sings calypso? it would be strange if he didn't!
Its available on cd with extra tracks including the epic bootlegging stomper Thunder Road. A heckuva a movie too.
I stll prefer the scratchy vinyl .
