It’s a Grab Bag of crazy zany fun with BOOM’s “The Amazing World of Gumball, 2018 Grab Bag Special”. But never mind the extra long title, just jump in and enjoy!

Eight (count ’em) short stories about the Gumball crowd are in this Special. Ideal for young adults and older kids, the drawings are fun, and the stories silly but thoughtful.

There are a lot of issues covered in these delightful, whimsical tales. And most of them revolve around being honest and making friends. How to deal with being afraid! Dealing with rejection and failure!

There are so many writers and artists in this issue that we won’t give special attention to any one team (because that’s not nice; they all did realllly good work!). But if the Gumball thing is your thing, you’ll enjoy these fun little stories!

BOOM The Amazing World of Gumball, 2018 Grab Bag Special, $7.99 (!!) for 42 pages of content. All ages

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
