This November, KaBOOM!, the award-winning all-ages imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of the network, are bringing the first original graphic novel set in the Amazing World of Gumball to comic book shelves.
From creative team of Megan Brennan (Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz) and Katy Farina (Adventure Time), The Amazing World of Gumball: Fairy Tale Trouble sees the Watterson family having a blast at a Renaissance Faire… that is, until a magician’s illusion turns into a real spell, and all of Elmore is cast into a fairy-tale world of quests, danger, and magical adventures! Can Wizard Darwin, Knight Anais, and Jester Gumball save Richard from his everlasting, turkey-leg-induced sleep, or will the citizens of Elmore remain trapped in the Middle Ages forever?
“We’ve had such a great time with the Wattersons in comics, and now we’re very excited to present the first original graphic novel for The Amazing World of Gumball. Gumball has always had a penchant for getting into mischief, and Megan and Katy are the perfect team to capture that with a dash of magic.” said BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing Filip Sablik.
