    Winsor McCay (as Silas) Thanksgiving A Personal Mention Comic Strip Original Art (New York Herald, c. 1905). The joys of the Thanksgiving holiday are the focus of this outrageous comic strip. Winsor McCay, creator of Little Nemo in Slumberland, was a master at drawing complex subjects and scenes in correct perspective, and could draw any subject, from any angle. His superb art was influenced by book illustrations and the then-current Art Nouveau style. The art is in Very Good condition. The overall size of the art measures approximately 13.5" x 18.5". No collection of comic strip art would be complete without a first-rate Winsor McCay showpiece and here is a gem -- so bid accordingly!
