Kim Deitch

Kim Deitch lives in New York, NY, with his wife, the artist Pamela Butler.

“Kim Deitch has created a private world as fully realized in its own way as Faulkner’s. He’s an American original, a spinner of yarns whose beautifully structured pages and intricate plots conjure up a haunting and haunted American past.” – Art Spiegelman

"Kim Deitch is easily one of the greatest cartoonists in the world, and in the history of the medium." – Chris Ware

"Few underground cartoonists deserve that subterranean title so fully as Kim Deitch. He was there at the beginning of the movement, drawing for The East Village Other in 1967, and his work retains much of that psychedelic, R. Crumb-like earthiness. But also: He's constantly digging, churning the inky soil of American pop culture and marveling over the fossils he turns up... It's crazy, invigorating stuff, but it's also a mystery: how can an artist so clearly in control of his work go so fully off the rails?" – John Hodgman, The New York Times

"Deitch's complex personal success-and-failure-cycle fables are somewhat similar to the gritty city stories of comics pioneer Will Eisner, but his illustration style and his wild, crowded imagery, are straight out of the Fleischer brothers' bizarre, psychedelic Betty Boop cartoons." – The Onion

"One of the godfathers of American underground comics." – Publishers Weekly

"Deitch is one of underground comics' great originals." – Byron Coley

"When the searing insight of Deitch's writing is added to the delightful two-dimensional quality of the art, amazingly successful in depicting the relationship between artistic enterprise and madness, what one experiences is a rare combination of great truth and great beauty." – The Comics Journal

"...Like Crumb, [Deitch] is one of the few underground cartoonists who has managed to keep his edge, and is currently producing work at least as good as, if not better than, that from his salad days." – Comics Comics
