Gahan Wilson signing at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, Jan. 13, 2010
If you live in the Boston area, make plans now to attend the 2011 Boston Comic Con, this Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1, at the Hynes Convention Center! We're excited to announce that the legendary Gahan Wilson will have his own table there, and will be signing all day, on both days!
Our friends from The Million Year Picnic will be on site, with copies of our beautiful box set Gahan Wilson: Fifty Years of Playboy Cartoons. If you have not seen this thing in person, lemme tell you, it's another Covey-masterpiece, with die cuts, embossing, and a plexi-glass window on the slipcase of this stunning three-volume set.
Yes, three. Gahan Wilson: 50 Years of Playboy Cartoons features not only every cartoon Wilson drew for Playboy, but all his prose fiction that has appeared in that magazine as well.
If you were at MoCCA a few weeks ago, you saw how quickly this set sold on just the first day! (Only one remained on Sunday morning, and as soon as Gahan sat down for his signing, the first person in line snatched it up!)
And, if you were at MoCCA, you got to see first-hand what a hilarious and delightful fella Gahan is! He is an absolute treat to meet, and I urge all you Bostonians to get over to the Hynes Convention Center this weekend to find out for yourself!
