Comments: “An Alien Abundance” Gumby, Pokey, and Tara are having fun in the toy store and inside books. Yes, they can travel inside of books.
The art is fantastic and illustrates Gumby and Pokey beautifully. They are just how you originally remember them. The colors pop out at you.
Moon creatures invade the toy store. With Gumby there, it all works out in this all-ages adventure that is great for children and adults alike.
“Gumby and Pokey in the Land of Ice Cream” Yes they actually visit the Land of Ice Cream. Well did you know ice cream comes from mountains of it in the Land of Ice Cream? You can learn so much in a Gumby comic and have even more fun. Gorgeous art on our stars goes together well with this fun tale.
“Model-y Crew” Pokey brings a model home. Gumby certainly has a lot of fun friends. Now Pokey and Gumby help the model Maddie design a dress. A dress which is not needed so Gumby helps out in another way at the model’s fashion show. Gumby does have a way of making everything turn out just right. The colors are nice and bright in this story.
“The Treasure of the Obellos” The Obello tribe had their Pigment Orb stolen. So a valuable lesson is learned even if people are different they can still get along.
“Goo’s Gone” Gumby and a few friends search for one of their friends. With Gumby’s abilities, he can search anywhere. Gumby’s adventures are always so much fun.
“All That Nin-Jazz” Imagine if Gumby and Pokey were ninjas. Being a ninja is not as easy as one might think better to just be a master of martial arts or even better just be who you are.
“Gumby’s Gran Adventure” This is a weird almost vacation that turns into a real vacation. Gumby and his granny both sure know how to have fun. Beautiful fun art fills the story for you to enjoy.
“Green with Envy” Gumby learns it is best to just be yourself. Trying to be something you are not just led to trouble. With Gumby he is a nice guy and that works best for him.
“The Sour Note!” This is a cute little story with cute art about a musical note.
Gumby and friends always provide fun with a capital G.
