Heads Up: NUTS by Gahan Wilson

More good news for comics fans. In reply to a post by blogger Tom Crippen featuring a couple of “Nuts” comics over at the Comics Journal site, TCJ and Fantagraphics employee, Kristi Valenti, let slip the following big news for Gahan Wilson fans, and I quote, “FYI, Fanta will be reprinting these. Should be out by SDCC 2011.” For those of you who don’t already know, Gahan Wilson’s “Nuts” first appeared as a regular feature in National Lampoon in the 1970s, along with “Idyl” by Jeffrey Jones, “Trots and Bonnie” by Shary Flenniken, and several other strips that deserved to be collected and brought back into print. Yes, a “Nuts” collection was published back in 1979 by Richard Marek Publishers; however, since that book has been out of print for almost thirty years, and since Fantagraphics has had a big success with their three-volume boxed set of “50 years of Playboy Cartoons” by Gahan Wilson, perhaps the time is ripe for a more general readership to discover, or re-discover, the greatness that is Gahan. One can only hope!
