Gilbert Shelton Signing! Saturday November 14, 3pm - 5pm

The latest signing to mark in your diary none other than counter-culture legend and all-round Gosh! Favourite, Gilbert Shelton. He’s no stranger to the hallowed Gosh! basement but hasn’t been here in well over a year. In that time we’ve seen hundreds of copies of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Omnibus fly off the shelf and the brand new Fat Freddy’s Cat Omnibus promises to do much the same thing.

Fat Freddy’s Cat originally began as a footnote to the now iconic Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers misadventures but very quickly became enormously popular in his own right. Bringing feline logic to the tie-dyed, drug-flushin’ world of the Freak Brothers, the Cat can be seen sleeping on Fat Freddy’s head, battling endless armies of roaches, travelling to Mexico, saving the world from an alien invasion and (of course) the Hee Hee Hee drug.

“Gilbert Shelton is as near as comics have come to producing a natural comedic genius of the same stature as a Chaplin or a Tati. With the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers he has created a hilarious and unlikely sibling trio as timeless in their appeal as the Marx Brothers. He is truly one of the greatest and most sublimely funny talents that the comic medium has to offer.”
Alan Moore

If you can’t make it in for the signing on Saturday the 14th of November 3pm – 5pm, don’t get burned! Let us know and we’ll score you a signed copy. Keed spills!

That's quite a scoop. I'll be making my way over. FF's C played a major part in my teenage development, I can thank the man in person for many, many laughs.
