Alias the Cat! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alias the Cat! free pdf At the center of the novel Kim Deitch deftly places himself and his wife Pam-a passionate collector of Halloween cats from the 1920s and 30s, whose collection is impressive to say the least. But when she buys a mysterious old cat costume, she and Kim find themselves in wholly new territory: the lost world of Alias the Cat who, in 1915, appeared not only in a comic strip and film serial, but in real life as a freedom-fighting superhero.
When Kim begins to research this forgotten figure, he uncovers one almost unbelievable story after another: about the Furries, a tiny subculture of people who dress up as cartoon animals in order to have sex- about Keller and Frankie, two seamen stranded on a Pacific island, forced to make cat toys to appease the natives- about the secret lover of Alias's alter ego, Malek Janochek- and, of course, about Deitch's own Waldo the Cat, the common thread weaving the stories together as Kim and Pam move toward a fateful showdown in Midgetville...New Jersey, of course.
"Alias the Cat" is Kim Deitch at his eye-catching, mind-bending best.
