As we mentioned back when the first issue came out, IDW's Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland is a comic you really need to check out. In case you've been sleeping on it (ha HA!), Eric Shanower, Gabriel Rodriguez and Nelson Daniel are reviving Winsor McKay's beloved newspaper strip in the form of one of the most beautiful comics on the stands, full of lavish backgrounds and innovative layouts that are every bit as visually engaging as the original.

There's only one problem: That kid spent an entire issue trying to get to Slumberland and never got there.

Seriously, it turns out the road to the kingdom of dreams is harder to get through than the TSA checkpoint at La Guardia, and while the new Nemo (whose name is actually Jimmy... it's complicated) tried his best, that first issue found him stymied at every turn. Fortunately, it looks like the second issue will actually get him there, complete with a parade. Check out a preview below!

Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #2

Eric Shanower (w) • Gabriel Rodriguez (a & c)

Betrayal and a kiss! Scratchy clothes and the threat of a tea party! Nemo just wants to get away from Slumberland—and his wish may come true when the insufferable Flip brings the sun to melt it all. Can this already be the final adventure in this exciting new vision of Winsor McCay’s classic comic strip?
