Among all the things that make Gomer such a lovable rascal, there are two that are instantly recognisable: his car, and his goofophone. His old lemon, favourite target of the constabulary and every pedestrian’s nightmare, is responsible for half the pollution in town – as well as many of the more ... exotic accidents.

The rest of the latter are mostly the result of the terrible ‘musical’ instrument put together by Gomer – stiff competition for the Trumpets of Jericho!

Unfortunately, in my current state humour of any kind is lost on me. I showed this to a couple of people who thought it was quite “fun” and “funny” –so you need not depend on the opinion so you need not depend on a bearded, bipolar miserable old git!  The artwork and colours are great as always and I did enjoy the previous Gomer Goof books!

In this day and age we need more laughs and if Lucky Luke ain’t your style try Gomer Goof!

  1. A coincidence, as I was just looking at a large fold out strip of this character just yesterday. Work that was included in 'A Ma Mer' for Casterman. Many other artists contributed including Philippe Druillet, Moebius and Milo Manara. The pleasant surprise was the strip folded inside. A nice charity shop find.
