Kim Deitch at the Strand
Kim Deitch, Deitch’s Pictorama
September 18 07:00PM – 08:30PM
Veteran underground cartoonist Kim Deitch, creator of the acclaimed Fantagraphics collection Shadowland and the Pantheon graphic novels Alias the Cat and Boulevard of Broken Dreams, has recruited his entire cast of siblings to produce a unique, all-new “picto-fiction” pocket book. Alternating between heavily illustrated near-comics stories and outright prose, Pictorama is a testament to the entire Deitch family’s amazing yarn-spinning abilities.
The Strand bookstore is located at 12th and Broadway, Manhattan.
