    Simply a wonderful series - hopefully just the first of many mini-series to carry on McCay's marvelous creation, sparking the imaginations of legions of future artists and writers, all of whom will dream of doing work like this. Read Full Review

    With this the final issue of the mini, Shanower manages to include some elements of what is to come next. The creators acknowledge their intentions to return soon with more stories. After such a phenomenally successful opening mini, there is no question that there is an audience anxiously awaiting that next release. For now, the depth of this world leaves enough in re-reads to hold everyone over. A strong finish to an excellent book, Return to Slumberland is a must for nearly any reader or individual with a fondness for imagination. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 19, 2015

    Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #4 ends this small series and sets things up for a bigger series somewhere down the line. Overall, the writing and characterization on the book was good as always, while the artwork was truly magnificent from start to finish. The only major weakness with the book was the story, which felt rather light and unfocused at points. Either way, I look forward to whatever the creative team has for this series in the future.

    Best art I've seen in a comic book series in years. It's so ornately imaginative and flawless in it's designs. It disappoints me that there hasn't been a larger fan response for the art alone, but the story has been excellent as well. It's not deep and it is whimsical, but it's super fun and often genuinely inventive in how it extends some of Windsor McKay's original ideas. I've loved this series, but I do understand why most readers would hope for something that had more character development to give it more of a sense of depth. Shanower stays true to McKay's original newspaper strip format where Nemo has a continuing whimsical adventure in dream land and wakes up every few pages to his surprise. It's fun and highly imaginative, but it leads you to wish for events that might determine a more hefty consequence, in or out of dreamland. Regardless, this has been a wonderful piece of work.
