DescriptionKim Deitch Shadowland #s 1 & 2 Preliminary Cover Designs Original Art (Fantagraphics Books, 1989). Deitch, a pioneer of the Underground Comix movement and artistic heir to Old Hollywood's Terrytoons legacy, has charged into the 21st century with such epics of novelistic cartooning as Young Avatar and Alias the Cat. A sturdy basis of his interrelated stories is Shadowland, which combines tales of murder, science fiction, metaphysics, and carnival life in a savory mixture of pop-culture mythology. These conceptual studies illustrate the gradual development of a cover design, each centering upon the hapless protagonist, Al Ledicker Jr., "a boy, yet not a boy, for his eyes seemed eternal." Marginal notes include a reference to the artist's father, the cartoonist and New Terrytoons animator Gene Deitch. Ink over graphite on ruled notepad paper. Image area, 8.5" x 11". Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
