FANTAGRAPHICS AND THE STRAND BOOKSTORE PRESENT:
KIM DEITCH TALKS PICTORAMA AND MORE ON THURSDAY, SEPT. 18

Deitch's Pictorama

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, Deitch's Pictorama is a testament to the entire Deitch family's amazing yarn-spinning abilities. Join Deitch at the Strand as he gives a power point presentation telling the story of how Deitch's Pictorama came about and showing pictorial highlights, including a dramatic reading of Deitch's story, "The Sunshine Girl," performed by Deitch and artist Pamela Butler. Deitch will also give an exclusive preview of his next graphic novel, to be published in 2009.
