Gilbert Shelton – The Best Of Wonder Wart-hog Signing

Here’s an exciting announcement for you: Alternative Comix Legend Gilbert Shelton (creator of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and Fat Freddy’s Cat) will be signing the brand-new collection of his well-loved Wonder Wart-hog comics here in the shop on the 17th of October.

A bit about the book: Wonder Wart-hog started in 1962 and is Shelton’s earliest comic work. It is a porcine Superman-parody about meek reporter Philbert Desanex who is at times inhabited by and at other times transforms into Wonder Wart-hog – a chaotic 800-pound humanoid warthog who seeks to solve humanity’s problems with his own brand of chaos and violence.

Knockabout comics are publishing this Best Of collection in a sizeable 464-page paperback which acts as a handsome companion edition to their Complete Freak Brothers and Fat Freddy’s Cat volumes. The book retails at £24.99, and we’re releasing it with an exclusive Gosh! bookplate created and signed by Shelton and limited to 200 copies.

The signing is taking place from 6 to 7pm on Thursday the 17th of October. If you can’t make it but would like a signed copy for yourself or your loved ones, just drop us a line at and we’ll reserve you one.
