Underground comix legend KIM DEITCH will hold a MASTER CLASS session in comics art and storytelling. Kim will condense the most important things he knows about making comics into highly-concentrated (and entertaining!) lecture form.

Kim will also impart some key secrets, secrets easily mastered, that transformed him from being lazy, hedonistic and unfocused into a more positive, goal-oriented human being. He will also show you a certain attitude about the idea of making art; how an artistic life can be more than a way to make a living; that it can also be a way to make a genuinely valid contribution to the world we live in.

Q & A to follow.

Monday, June 28, 6:30-8:30 pm

Class cost: $40 | $35 for MoCCA members

KIM DEITCH has a reserved place at the first table of underground
cartoonists. The son of UPA and Terrytoons animator Gene Deitch, Kim was born in 1944 and grew up around the animation business. He began doing comic strips for the East Village Other in 1967, introducing two of his more famous characters, Waldo the Cat and Uncle Ed, the India Rubber Man. In 1969 he succeeded Vaughn Bodé as editor of Gothic Blimp Works, the Other’s underground comics tabloid. During this period he married fellow cartoonist Trina Robbins and had a daughter, Casey. The Mishkin Saga was named one of the Top 30 best English-language comics of the 20th Century by The Comics Journal, and the first issue of The Stuff of Dreams received the Eisner Award for Best Single Issue in 2003. Deitch remains a true cartoonists’ cartoonist, adored by his peers as much as anyone in the history of the medium. His latest book is THE SEARCH FOR SMILIN’ ED, published by Fantagraphics.
