VQR on Little Nemo

I remember when The Virginia Quarterly Review was the perfect panacea for insomnia, but something has happened to that august publication: It woke up! These days, it has become a must-read, from Art Spiegelman's latest multi-chapter opus to well-written articles such as this one on Winsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland.

If you don't know McCay's dreamy, gorgeous artwork, check out the example-packed entry on Little Nemo in Wikipedia.

I'm sorry I didn't hear about the Splendid Sundays book earlier. As of a couple months ago, it was already in its 2nd printing (apparently with some corrections.) It'd be nice to see the pages in a larger format. I have several Mccay books that would qualify as being oversized, but, not as big as the art deserves.I had heard that Moebius (Jean Giraud) worked on the animated film of Little Nemo, but, still haven't seen any footage from it. I wonder if it's any good.
