Image: Amazing, Enlightening & Absolutely True Adventures of Katherine Whaley HC  - Fantagraphics Books

A surreal tale of hyper-intelligent dogs, movie making in the early 20th century and, possibly, the voice of God. The Amazing, Enlightening and Absolutely True Adventures of Katherine Whaley is Kim Dietch's first original full-length graphic novel and is presented in a striking widescreen landscape format that allows Deitch to give full rein to his astonishing graphics. [(W/A/CA) Kim Deitch]

Reincarnation Stories HC
(Fantagraphics Books)

The award-winning cartoonist returns with a graphic novel that spans the past, present, and future of human history, in which Deitch himself, in a parallel reality, meets his spiritual nemesis, Waldo the Cat. Kim Deitch is an underground cartoonist-i.e., a contemporary of Spiegelman, et al.-whose craft just keeps getting better and better. Aesthetically inspired by silent film and 1930s animation, Deitch's comics are infused with 1960s psychedelia and spiritualism. Reincarnation Stories is a collection of comics narratives that combine into a graphic novel. It spans the past, present, and future of human history, with appearances by Frank Sinatra, monkey gods, a forgotten cowboy star of the silver screen, and a tribe of Native Americans that successfully resettled on the moon. In a parallel reality, Deitch himself is the mega-successful creator of a series of kids books about a superhero called Young Avatar, who helps marginalized souls lead better lives and whose alter ego is a carpenter. Deitch's spiritual nemesis (an incarnation of Judas Iscariot), Waldo the Cat, makes an appearance.

Search for Smilin Ed. GN
(Fantagraphics Books)

A LONG-GONE CHILDREN's SHOW HOST PROPELS KIM DEITCH INTO ANOTHER POP-CULTURE INVESTIGATION! Originally created in 1997 and 1998 for the underground anthology Zero Zero, The search for smilin" Ed is the latest of Kim Deitch's graphic novels to showcase his obsessive burrowing into the nooks and crannies of vintage American popular culture. Where Boulevard of Broken dreams focused on the earliest days of the animation industry, Alias the Cat delved into the history of comic strips, and "Molly O"Dare" (collected in shadowland) concerned vintage movie serials, The search for smilin" Ed explores the wacky world of children's TV shows. Launched on his latest investigation by a remark from his brother about a shared childhood favorite ("Y"know, I heard that when Smilin" Ed died... his body was NEVER found!"), Deitch begins to uncover some truly amazing things about the kiddie-show host and his malevolent sidekick, Froggy the Gremlin. Meanwhile, Deitch's muse and nemesis Waldo the Cat abandons Deitch to hang out with some demon buddies, and soon both Waldo and Deitch are closing in on the mysteries of Smilin" Ed and Froggy. Ranging across the entire 20th century, replete with flashbacks, stories within stories, and guest appearances from other Deitch regulars, The search for smilin" Ed is a narrative whirligig that shows Deitch at his wildest and woolliest. For those whose heads have started to spin at the complexity of "Deitch world," Deitch scholar Bill Kartalopoulos offers a lengthy essay on the ins and outs of this ever-evolving, ever-expanding world where fantasy, reality, and satire combine, clash, and are sometimes downright indistinguishable. Bonus! Deitch has also created a brand new story starring Waldo in his 21st century post-Alias The Cat state of domestic bliss, stumbling across an army of (French-) talking beavers. Of course, there's a story behind that...
