Kim Dietch's The Ship That Never Came In

Hey, kids, let's watch a cartoon! May I present The Ship That Never Came In
by Kim Deitch, comix genius. It's a piece with his magnum opus Boulevard of Broken Dreams
. Both, as Time magazine's comix critic Andrew Arnold
notes, focuses on Ted Mishkin, a talented animator whose gifts can never quite overcome his curse. His curse is Waldo, a mischievous cat who walks on his hind legs. Waldo may be a delusion or he may be real, but only Ted can see him.
Wotta concept! More inside ? Fuckin' A !
