Gahan Wilson and Fantagraphics celebrate 50 years of the artist's "Playboy" work with a massive collection of every cartoon he's done for the magazine. We spoke with Wilson about the new collection and his legacy.
Wilson is an amazing artist, having done work all over the map. His "Nuts" strip for National Lampoon is criminally underknown. It got a brief life as an animated Cartoon in an attempt to ride the South Park wave.
He's also responsible for one of my more favorite Norberts.
I used to love his stuff in Playboy. Sometimes, I have to admit, I would enjoy his comics as much or more than the pictures of the girls. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Mom, dad if you're reading this I was just checking out for the comics panels, really!
