Underground Comic Kim Deitch.
Underground cartoonist Kim Deitch. In 1967 he began doing comic strips for the "East Village Other" where he introduced his more famous characters, Waldo the Cat, and Uncle Ed, the India Rubber Man. Since then he has contributed to dozens of underground comics. Deitch's strips show a fascination for "lost America" of the 20's and 30's and include the recurring characters of Miles Microft, the psychic detective, and his midget wife Blanche; Larry Farrel, old-time movie star and inveterate practical joker; Nathan Mishkin, an alcoholic whose DT's usually feature Waldo. His books include "Hollywoodland," and the new "Beyond the Pale! Krazed Komics and Stories." (Published by Fantagraphics Books.)
