Wowzers! The cat is out of the bag! I’ve been working my brains out to get a new minicomic ready for SDCC! This is the third minicomic I’ve done with BOOM! and I’ve really valued the opportunity to stretch my bookmaking muscles and really go wild with some really fun shows as the backbone of the book. This year the show that I’m doing a minicomic for is the Amazing World of Gumball! I’m combining my loves for this book and casing it in a SNES cartridge!
The narrative of the book involves Gumball and Darwin getting WAY too into a video game, and I wanted a format that would help immerse the reader into that world, and make them feel like they are holding an artifact from the story.
I went all out on this book! There’s a die-cut that makes the book look like a microchip, a QR Code (not pictured) that takes you to some pixel animation I did for a game intro for the video game that is featured in the book!
I can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it! Want a copy? Swing by the BOOM! booth (2229) during San Diego Comic Con (next week?!?!)
Jesus H Christ, Chadurjian!
