“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

"Maybe even more than fellow first-wave underground comics creator Crumb, Deitch has maintained his quality." – Ray Olson, Booklist

"Deitch… retains an astonishing ability to tap into the deepest desires of pop-culture junkies, and to show how the satisfaction we seek from nostalgia can lead us to some dark corners of our collective showbiz past." – The A.V. Club

"There’s no cartoonist out there that makes better use of expanding canvasses than Kim Deitch. Literally and figuratively. The rhapsodic spreads — one, two, even four pages — he drops into his narratives are one of comics’ finest stand-alone effects…" – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter
