Fans of comedy and comics are getting served a two-for-one special on the first day of San Diego Comic-Con courtesy of Jack Black and OC's favorite cartoonist/rocker Luke McGarry. In honor of Tenacious D's Festival Supreme, Black and McGarry will be signing free, limited edition posters for the festival this afternoon from 4-5p.m. at the National Cartoon Society booth at Comic-Con.
Festival Supreme of course features the likes of Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, and The Mighty Boosh, and is at the Santa Monica pier this October. McGarry, known for his work with Goldenvoice and FYF, did all the art for the fest, from website to posters. Consider it another notch on his belt following an amazing list of recent honors including Advertising Illustrator of the Year nomination at the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben awards in May.
McGarry, who also plays in local band Pop Noir with his twin brother Joe, was also one of the artists behind our recent all-comics issue of the Summer Guide (his highest honor, no doubt).
Signings take place at boothe 1307-1309 in the Main Hall at Comic-Con, mark it on your schedules as your gauntlet of fanboy/fangirl action commences!
