Big Planet Comics is proud to welcome a titanic double header, Box Brown and Pat Aulisio, for one afternoon only!

Box will be presenting his astounding new graphic novel, Andre the Giant: Life and Legend, a biography of the famous wrestler and movie star. We have read a preview copy and it was amazing! Full of great anecdotes, drama, pathos, The Princess Bride, and lots of wrestling!

Pat does a ton of comics, including the ongoing saga of Bowman after he enters the monolith in 2001! Trippy space adventures. He is also publisher of the amazing Yeah Dude Comics line, so hopefully he’ll bring some of the quality risograph comics he is publishing too!
