Give the Gift That is Celebrating 25 Years, Epic Big Nate!


With the holidays coming, we are constantly looking for gift ideas. I enjoy giving gifts that are… well, epic. The New York Times best-selling Big Nate comic strip is celebrating 25 years with Epic Big Nate. That is a long time for a comic! I love comic strips, as I grew up reading the “funnies.” As you flip through the pages, you will see it is full of cartoons, memorabilia, and lots of information about Lincoln Peirce.

Big Nate has a giant following and the fans range in all ages, which makes it an excellent gift for comic lovers and middle-grade readers alike. With a loyal readership at GoComics.com, more than 14 million books sold, and syndication in over 400 U.S. newspapers, Epic Big Nate makes a great gift for the Big Nate fan in your life.


Lincoln Peirce, the creator of Big Nate began creating his own comic strips in the sixth grade and has been drawing Big Nate for over 20 years. Peirce taught high school in New York City and has created several pilots for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Currently he lives with his family in Portland, Maine.

Peirce’s witty commentary accompanies hundreds of cartoons he selected to include in Epic Big Nate. It is so much fun to see the evolution of each character. It is like getting the behind the scenes for a movie or television show. You get to see the creative side like never before.


Included in this book is also a Q&A between Lincoln Peirce and Jeff Kinney, the author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. You get to see their friendship and mutual admiration for each other, and it is fun to see how they truly are proud of the other’s success. Overall, Epic Big Nate is a fantastically fun read from start to finish. The cartoons are memorable, but add that with commentary from the creator and an amazing Q&A between two friends, and Epic Big Nate is a must have for any comic lover, young or old!
