Before his magnificent Little Nemo, Winsor McCay created two unique Sunday comics also starring young children: Little Sammy Sneeze and Hungry Henrietta. Sunday Press Books, publisher of the award-winning Little Nemo- Splendid Sundays presents both of these historic and fascinating comic strips in one volume, featuring the complete color Sammy Sneeze (1904-1905) and the complete 27-episode run of Hungry Henrietta , all printed in their original size and colors.
Most pages have never been reprinted! Little Sammy Sneeze presents a unique concept in classic comics reprints, where the back of each Sammy page features a strip that appeared on the back in the original Sunday comic section of the New York Herald. In 1905 that strip was Hungry Henrietta, but pages from 1904 showcase the unique Upside Downs by Gustav Verbeek, and the unknown nonsense masterpiece, The Woozlebeasts.
Just like the earlier Little Nemo and Walt and Skeezix collections, these incredible Sunday pages have been digitally restored to their original colorful brilliance and are reproduced at full size. The book also includes many other early Winsor McCay strips and essays by Jeet Heer, Thierry Smolderen and Dan Nadel.
