The Dream of the Rarebit Fiend was a comic strip by Winsor McCay that ran in newspapers all over the United States from 1904 to 1911.
Perfect introduction to a father of the graphic comic novel and comic cartoon strip.
One of the all time greats of comic strip and graphic art history McCay produced some of the most imaginative cartoons ever. "The dreams of the Rarebit fiend" is surreal, innovative and hilarious and explores the dream logic of a poor night's sleep to find a rich vein of the absurd. By turns lightweight, surreal, sinister and silly - and always funny, having read this you may never eat a cheese toasty before going to sleep again!
