Reviews - What do customers think about Winsor McCay: Early Works Volume 7 (Early Works) (Early Works)?

Quality better, still not what it might have been  May 6, 2006
Unlike the previous volumes, I found the reproduction quality of this volume to be pretty decent - the major drawbacks being several large pieces split across the fold so that the centres are lost and some other pieces reproduced much smaller than the originals so that the details are hard to appreciate. The Rarebit strips are reproduced pretty well this time.

Unfortunately, we only get about 40 pages of Rarebit (my main interest here) and an over-generous helping (80 pages) of miscellaneous illustrations including many caricatures of notable figures of the day and a bunch more baseball illustrations (well-drawn, certainly, but not really of much interest to me). This section includes several pieces that might have been interesting but are unaccountably reproduced across two pages so that the center fold obscures a good deal of the image (right out of the centre too, of course). There are also a few gems in here, reproduced on single pages - not a dead loss, just not what it could have been.

This volume also contains about 15 pages of editorial cartoons in McCay's grand style, all on the theme of "Dope" - these are pretty good stuff, but are reproduced 2 and 3 to a page, where each really deserves a full page on its own.

We also get some Pilgrim's Progress (20 pages) and Poor Jake (10 pages), amusing as far as they go, but not that important in my view.

once again I'll plead with someone to make a generous (if not comprehensive) collection of the Dream strips.
