Gosh!ping about Krazy Kat, Calvin & Hobbes and Lucy the Octopus…

Lucy the Octopus will be mingling with giants of the comic strip world: George Herriman’s sublime Krazy Kat and Bill Watterson’s wonderful Calvin & Hobbes.  The three strips are up for discussion at the Gosh!p graphic novel reading group in June.

I’m a regular attendee at Comic Gosh!p, a proud Gosh!per, and always learn a lot and laugh a lot.  Each event  normally includes a mainstream comic (in this case two) and one small press book (in this case our blue, eight-legged, guitar-rocking friend).

You can join the group’s facebook page here!

Even if Lucy wasn’t up for discussion in June, this one would still be a must for me as both Krazy Kat and Calvin & Hobbes are big influences.  I even did a dissertation on Calvin & Hobbes back at college.

If you fancy reading any of the strips before coming along (or even if you can’t make it), here’s where to look…

Hope to see some of you there!
