Big Easy Comics is excited to be hosting world-renowned comic strip illustrator/author, Guy Gilchrist, best known as Jim Henson's cartoonist and creator of the "Muppets" daily comic strip (printed worldwide from 1981 to 1986) and the international comic strip, "Nancy" for 22 years!
Guy will be with us on January 27 - 29 (see full schedule below).
Mr. Gilchrist will be set up at the store, greet fans, take photos, sign autographs and talk about the art of cartooning. He will bring plenty of original art pieces, prints, and drawings that will be available for purchase. Additionally, Funko Pop collectors are encouraged to buy or bring your Pops to the store so that Gilchrist can turn your item into a 3-D piece of art.
Entry to the store is free and open to the public but will follow strict COVID-19 precautionary guidelines. Attendees will be required to wear masks.
