About this event

Shades & Textures: Experience Black Comic Book Creators Then and Now with Terrence Gant of Third Coast Comics, Thursday, June 9, 7p. RSVP


Terry Gant of the South Side Gants, is the owner of Third Coast Comics in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.

In the summer of 2008, Third Coast Comics became a “Brick and Mortar” operation.

Terry earned his BA in Marketing (focusing on geeks) from DePaul University.

Terry has been paid to play Dungeons & Dragons. He has also parlayed some of his nerd cred into about 30 minutes and 20 seconds on both NPR and Good Morning America in his career.

He has been nominated three times for the Will Eisner “Spirit of Comic Book Retailing” Award, given out every year at San Diego ComicCon. It’s like a Nerd Oscar or Geek Golden Globe or something. Terry is obsessed with prog metal, 80’s new wave, pro wrestling and the video games Skyrim & Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Terry currently lives in Evanston with his patient wife and their three birds; Sherlock, Mulder and Scully.

Free and open to the public.
