Gahan Wilson appears with Jesse Pearson on October 20 from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!
In this thematically and narratively linked series of one-page stories originally published in the National Lampoon’s “Funny Pages” section throughout the 1970s, the master of the macabre, Gahan Wilson, eschewed his usual ghouls, vampires and end-of-the-world scenarios for a wry, pointed look at growing up normal in the real, yet endlessly weird world.
“Nuts” was (partly) collected in a now long out-of-print volume back in 1979. This new hardcover edition reprints every single “Nuts” story from the Lampoon, rescuing over two dozen pages from oblivion.
Gahan Wilson is among the most popular, widely-read and beloved cartoonists in the history of the medium. His career spans more than 60 years and his work has been seen by millions in the pages of Playboy, The New Yorker, Punch, The National Lampoon and many other publications.
Jesse Pearson, former editor of VICE magazine and contributor to The Comics Journal will moderate this discussion with Gahan Wilson.
