Description

At the centre of Alias the Cat are Kim Deitch and his wife pam - a passionate collector of Halloween cats from the 1920s and 30s. 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 tine subculture of people who dress up as cartoon amimals 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.
