About this title


The newest addition to Pantheon's growing list of graphic novels: a visually beautiful, narratively intricate, and powerful book by one of the most original, and–until now–least recognized comic artists at work today.

The place is New York City in 1933. The setting: the Fontaine Talking Fables animation studio. Teddy Mishkin–definitely alcoholic, possibly insane–is hard at work on the latest cartoon short for Waldo the Cat, the "star" of Fontaine's stable of animated characters. But little does anyone (except Teddy) realize that Waldo is real–and that he is Teddy's insidiously helpful assistant.

From the Back Cover:

"At last, the general public will be allowed to discover one of the best-kept secrets in comics for the past thirty-five years. 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
