Comics Journal interviews Gene Deitch

I picked up the latest Comics Journal (October 2008, No. 292) at the Comic Con last week and it’s essentially a book length interview (well over 150 pages) with the Deitch family – writer Seth, artists Simon and Kim and their dad, animator Gene Deitch. Gene’s interview reveals additional information about his career at UPA and Terrytoons not included in his online book. A must-read. Should be at your comics shop this week, or from Fantagraphics Books.
