    UK – Indie Legends

    Dan Clowes and Chris Ware sign at Gosh! Comics – Tuesday 25th May 12 – 2pm

    A rare and delicious treat is in store for indie comics fans this May! Of course there’s the usual late-May ritual of casting aside our cardigans and dreary Winter coats to look forward to – all full of old sweet wrappers and forgotten pennies to surprise ourselves with next year – but there’s also a Gosh! basement signing to bring joy to your freshly Spring-cleaned lives. Why not dampen a sunny Tuesday lunchtime by getting some classic graphic novels signed by two masters of misanthropic misery? I’ll be there. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Make sure you’re in the Gosh! basement between 12pm and 2pm on Tuesday the 25th of May.

    ABOUT WILSON: Meet Wilson, an opinionated middle-aged loner who loves his dog and quite possibly no one else. In an ongoing quest to find human connection, he badgers friend and stranger alike into a series of one-sided conversations, punctuating his own lofty discursions with a brutally honest, self-negating sense of humor. After his father dies, Wilson, now irrevocably alone, sets out to find his ex-wife with the hope of rekindling their long-dead relationship, and discovers he has a teenage daughter, born after the marriage ended and given up for adoption. Wilson eventually forces all three to reconnect as a family – a doomed mission that will surely, inevitably backfire.
