Graphic novelist returns to childhood home for first Lake Tahoe Comic Con


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Comic book creator/writer/artist Chris Wisnia grew up in South Lake Tahoe in the 1980s, so it’s apt he’s coming home to celebrate his new graphic novel, “Doris Danger: GIANT MONSTERS Amok,” as a special guest at the first ever Lake Tahoe Comic Con planned at the Tahoe Blue Event Center, Sept. 23 & 24.

Wisnia has been writing and drawing comics professionally since 2004 and his new graphic novel is published by the award-winning alternative comics company, Fantagraphics. Its website boasts, “Publisher of the World’s Greatest Cartoonists.” It’s no exaggeration; “Love and Rockets” (which the company has published since its inception) was voted Rolling Stone’s “greatest American Comic Book Series of All Time,” and next year sees the release of Fantagraphics’ Complete Peanuts by Charles Schulz, volume 22.
