    Winsor McCay Little Nemo in Slumberland Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-2-08 (New York Herald, 1908). Full Nemo Sundays come along seldom -- we have offered just five in our fifteen years of comic art auctions. Here, Nemo and Flip take a dip in a molasses lake, only to get coated in flour! Holy Flapjacks! Don't overlook the great goat in panels 5-8. This piece has never been offered on the market before, as it was originally acquired directly from the family in the 1970s and been in a private collector's hands since then. Created in ink over graphite on two sheets of conjoined illustration board with a combined image area of 21.5" x 27.75". The piece has been professionally conserved and restored with an archival cleaning, and some added paper to fill rounded corners top left and bottom right, and added paper on the side margins (not into the image areas). Some whiteout areas had additional pigment added to more properly match the paper tone. There are light abrasions and some pinholes. Overall in restored Very Good condition.
