    Gilbert Hernandez goes on tour for Marble Season in April & May 2013! Gilbert will present “From Funny Books to Graphic Novels”, a fascinating slide show tribute to the legacy of the comics he read as a kid. He’ll talk about the silver age comics featured in MARBLE SEASON, which helped set the course for Gilbert, as well as his brothers Jaime and Mario, to become the legendary comics creators they are today.
