Description

This issue: Gary Groth interviews the entire Deitch family: Academy-award-winning Gene Deitch, whose wide-ranging career has spanned 60+ years, talks about doing illustrations for The Record Changer, directing cartoons such as Munro and Krazy Kat, and creating his comic strip Terr'ble Thompson; underground comics pioneer Kim Deitch touches on his father's influence, reminisces about the New York-based scene and outlines the evolution of Waldo the Cat; and Mineshaft artist Simon Deitch and writer Seth Deitch tell their stories in a fascinating, Rash?mon-like look at one of the most creative families in cartooning.

Also: A look at the early comics of pioneering newspaper-strip cartoonist F. M. Howarth, Bill Randall on Seiichi Hayashi's seminal Gekiga novel Red Colored Elegy, R.C. Harvey's report from the recent Reuben Award weekend in New Orleans, and much more!
