Mark Twain Meets Chewbacca (And Other Adventures)
October 18, 2011 Leave a comment
This weekend was the New York City Comic-Con, and Fantagraphics Books was at the Con to promote their recent publication Mark Twain’s Autobiography 1910-2010 by humorist Michael Kupperman. Kupperman’s graphic novel tells the story of Mark Twain faking his death and having various adventures over the course of the 20th Century.
Well, not only were the Fantagraphics at the Con, but so was Twain himself. Well, maybe not the actual Mark Twain, but at least a Mark Twain was there. The Fantagraphics website has a great gallery of photos of Twain’s adventures in New York, including meeting Chewbacca and Oscar the Grouch and a duel with arch-nemesis Ben Franklin.
