Gosh Comics to host Gilbert Shelton signing later this month

London’s Gosh Comics will host a signing with legendary comics creator Gilbert Shelton on Saturday 23rd November 2019.

Gosh Comics - Gilbert Shelton Signing - 23rd November 2019

The signing marks the launch of a brand new Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers print just in time for Christmas, and the Gosh team thought what could be a better way to celebrate it than having Gilbert Shelton at the shop in Berwick Street to sign it?

One of the most iconic creators of the underground comics scene of the 1960’s, Gilbert Shelton has been actively creating ever since. Few creators of the San Francisco underground movement could claim the cultural cachet that Shelton has, in particular the Freak Brothers looming large over an entire counter-culture as The Hilarious Stoner Comic That I Used To Have But Somebody Stole From Me (now conveniently available in a bumper omnibus edition!)

Gosh have worked with Gilbert to create a print using artwork from a French edition of Freak Brothers that really captures the colourful, anarchic nature of the strip. Just 100 copies of the print will be signed, so don’t dilly-dally, pre-order one on the Gosh webstore now.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of the true comics legends. If for some unfortunate reason you can’t make it, then you can pre-order a signed copy of the Furry Freak Brothers Omnibus, Fat Freddy’s Cat Omnibus, Fifty Freakin’ Years with the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Compendium or The Best of Wonder Warthog from the Gosh web store for collection or mail order.

Gilbert Shelton Signing 1.00 – 2.00pm Saturday 23rd November 2019 Gosh Comics, 1 Berwick Street, London W1F 0DR | More Gosh Comics events here on the shop’s official site
