This recently discovered comic strip by cartooning pioneer Winsor McCay opens a surprising new window into McCay’s life and work and showcases his exquisitely beautiful delineations (reproduced from the original art).
Merkl explores the influences McCay brought to the strip- from Gertie the Dinosaur to the animation in 1933’s King Kong - and the growth of New York City from the Holland Tunnel to the Empire State Building-and traces our love of dinosaurs and monster movies down through the decades.
