    Winsor McCay Little Nemo in Slumberland Sunday Comic Strip Befuddle Hall Original Art dated 2-23-08 (New York Herald, 1908). An extremely rare episode from one of the most famous Little Nemo sequences, Befuddle Hall -- the only one known to ever come to market! From January 19th to March 15th 1908, Nemo and his friends are trapped in Befuddle Hall -- Winsor McCay's version of the ultimate funhouse. After entering Befuddle Hall, they are faced with numerous obstacles and rooms, including the sideways rooms seen in this striking piece, illustrating McCay's incredible attention to detail in creating the eye-catching and mind-warping architecture. This important piece of comics history was displayed in the Masters of American Comics exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, created in ink over graphite on Bristol board. Composed of two panel tier sections conjoined by a thin backing layer to form an image area of 21.5" x 27.5". Lightly toned, paste-up and whiteout corrections, with some minor staining. Pinholes in the margins, edge and corner wear. In Very Good condition. From the Garry Trudeau Collection.
