Rayroy (LomaxLeSpark) | 7 comments So has anyone ever heard of it, it's from the early 1900's, was in color and newspaper size. In "Against The Day" Thomas Pynchon uses "Little Nemo: In Slumberland" as inspiration for the Chums of Chance in "Against the Day", Tyrone Slothrop reads "Plastic Man Comics" on a beach in France in "Gravity's Rainbow",seems Thomas Pyhon is a comic book fan. Alan Moore, "Watchmen", is said to be a fan of Thomas Pynchon. I hear the Little Nemo comics are hard to come by and cost serious bank.

I saw the animated movie as a kid and remember liking it. Probably because of the giant nightmare monster though. I had no idea the Chums of Chance were based off this though. Reminds me I need to try and read that book. Sigh. The labor that is Pynchon.

Sesana I've seen the animated movie, and heard really wonderful things about the original comics. I'd love to read them. Somebody could make a mint publishing a more or less reasonably priced edition, and I really wish they'd get on it.

Sam Quixote (SamQuixote) Wasn't this a NES game?

Sesana Yes, it was! Looking at screenshots, I think I played that game, back in the day.

Sam Quixote (SamQuixote) Oh yeah, I definitely played that! Pretty fun as I recall. Those old game covers were really good.
