edited by Gary Groth, Mike Dean & Kristy Valenti Gary Groth interviews father and son cartoonists Gene and Kim Deitch. Academy-award-winning Gene Deitch, whose wide-ranging career has spanned over 60 years, talks about doing illustrations for The Record Changer, directing cartoons such as Munro and Krazy Kat, and creating his comic strip Terr'ble Thompson. Underground comics pioneer Kim Deitch, touches on his father's influence, reminisces about the New York-based scene and outlines the evolution of Waldo the Cat. Plus: The innovative Grant Morrison fills us in on his X-Men run, All Star Superman, the ambitious Seven Soldiers "maxiseries," and how he became one of the architects of the current DC Comics universe. Finally, the comics gallery presents an historical essay and highlights from the turn-of-the-19th-century work of Puck cartoonist, F. M. Howarth.
