Gahan Wilson is an American author, illustrator, and cartoonist whose cartoons are often drawn in a humorously grotesque manner that is coupled with dark sense of humor. One of his most famous comic strips is Nuts, which appeared throughout the 1970s in National Lampoon Magazine. The strip follows the life of The Kid, an unnamed child who navigates childhood while coming to see the world as a strange, unfair, yet also fun place to inhabit. Wiltons inspiration behind the comic was to depict the complexity of childhood in an accurate and thought-provoking way.
