Larry’s Comic Book Show proudly welcomes Rob Guillory, artist of the hit indie comic Chew, to their Thanksgiving weekend show. As a special incentive, an exclusive limited edition variant of the sold out first issue will be available for sale at the show. “Chew very well may be the runaway best-selling new series of the year,” says promoter Larry Doherty, “I am thrilled to be hosting series artist Rob Guillory. This is his first time meeting New England comic fans.”

Also present will be Larry’s Comics in-house artist Kris Carter (Grimm Fairy Tales, Leprechaun) and art rep to the stars Bob Shaw and Comic Art House. Dozens of local retailers will be hawking their wares with more deals than a Black Friday Sale. Pick up all the comics, trades, cards, toys, and memorabilia for your holiday season needs.  Bring the family out to celebrate the wonderful world of comics.
