Those who think that LITTLE NEMO was unique would be wrong. There were a large number of fantasy comic strips in the early part of the 20th century.

FORGOTTEN FANTASY, a new book from Sunday Press Books, showcases over 150 of these fantastic Sunday strips from 1900-15. It will be released next month and there's a discount if you order now.

Features the complete Lyonel Feininger comics:
Wee Willie Winkie and, The Kin-der-Kids,
with complete runs of The Explorigator, Naughty Pete, George McManus's Nibsy the Newsboy, and full-color selections of Winsor McCay's Dream of the Rarebit Fiend and Tales of the Jungle Imps. PLUS dozens fantastical comics by the greatest fantasy cartoonists of the age.

All in the original size and colors

One of those fantastic strips, PROFESSOR WAYUPSKI (which I do not think is in the upcoming book) is highlighted today over at the Stripper's Guide --

PROFESSOR WAYUPSKI by Albert Bloch, which ran for a short time in 1902 in the St. Louis Dispatch, was one of many. The Stripper's Guide has more here. Link
