Little Neuro SLumberland
The bigger version of this cartoon can be seen here: http://bit.ly/m3OOg7
I vaguely recall Little Nemo – not sure what this has to do w/the 2 contemporary strips. But a full moon goes a long way… ;-)
Guess I was holding the door for you when God was handing out talent.
Looks like this strip was the inspiration:http://thenimbusfactoryblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/winsor-mccay.html
And I think the main joke is their bed (which incidentally looks horseish) has these adventures, but the kid sleeps right through and misses it all.
LOVE it! I found Little Nemo profoundly enjoyable and love your treatment of the concept. Interestingly, there is a comic read by Petey in Cul de Sac by the name of little Neuro, I believe.
ah, I see you joined Team Cul de Sac, d’oh! What a FINE rendition!!
Ah, I was trying to figure out the “Team Cul De Sac” reference and hadn’t made the connection with Petey’s comic book. It would have been appropriate if the little kid in the bed that slept through it all was actually Petey — he would have enjoyed sleeping through that adventure and missing it entirely. And the girl in the center on the manhole cover is another nod to Cul De Sac.
I was trying to figure out that M at the bottom — it looked like it was falling out of the upturned bed, but I didn’t see it in the bed in previous frames. Finally realized the UR at the top knocked had it loose, turning “NEMO” into “NEURO”.
Just beautiful! (wish I’d drawn that)
Nice Darkside of a Horse in panel four.
I don’t understand the M in the tenth panel. But love the whole strip.
That’s Alice Otterloop on the manhole cover! Little Neuro is the comic book her brother Petey reads in Rueben winning Richard Thompson’s Cul de Dac!
Awesome! Totally aweso e!
Brings back long lost memories! Nope. Not crying. Not me!
What if Peter Parker got a symbiotic alien bed instead of costume?
The bed’s feelings as captured by the leg positions, from first exhilaration to final exhaustion, with no facial expressions as a guide to the viewer, are marvelous. Everything is right about this strip.
Sammi… you’re an artist’s artist!
Off the charts, Samuli. Even better that it’s for a good cause. \o/
I love it. I’m a big fan of McCay!
Love the Cul de Sac ref! <3
What’s with the ‘M’ in the 10th panel?
