The Boulevard of Broken Dreams Deitch, K. September 24, 2002

One of the godfathers of American underground comics, Deitch grew up among animators, and this graphic novel is his twisted allegorical history of the rise and fall of American animation. Spanning from 1927 (when theatrical cartoons began to hit their stride) to 1993, it’s crammed with intrigue, mysteries and Deitch’s trademark exploding page layout.
