Nemo in Adventureland by Bob McCay
Nemo In Adventureland (Red Seal Comics #14, 10/1/1945)

Bob McCay, born Robert Winsor McCay, was the son of newspaper comic artist and animation pioneer Winsor McCay. He stood model for his father's best known character, 'Little Nemo'. He has done several attempts to follow in his father's footsteps and to revive the 'Little Nemo' strip. In 1937 he started drawing a revised version of 'Little Nemo in Slumberland' for the Harry "A" Chesler syndicate. It was accompanied by a daily strip starring 'Impie'.

In the early 1940s, McCay did some comic book art, such as inking 'Ajax the Sun Man' and 'Blackstone' for Street & Smith Comics and 'Bulletman' for Fawcett. The 'Little Nemo' strip also appeared in several comic books, with titles like 'Nemo in Adventureland' and 'Little Nemo in Dreamland'. In 1945 he formed the McCay Feature Syndicate. By 1947 he did another revival of his father's classic strip, this time through cutting up and revising his father's original artwork. Robert McCay eventually focused on making training aids for the American Army.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
