American cartoonist (b. 1944) who began in underground comics in 1967, and became a prominent contributor to Raw and Weirdo in the 1980s. Deitch's stories depict bizarre and often sordid events in a cartoony style which is influenced by his interest in 1920s-30s animation. His long work Boulevard of Broken Dreams is a fictionalized account of the animation industry in which his father worked.
