Gumby's Spring Specials
by Steve Purcell and Arthur Adams
Gumby Comics 2012
Paperback

The Eisner Award-winning Gumby Winter and Summer Specials are collected in one paperback! Everyone's favourite boy of clay goes for a romp through the Gumbyverse sure to dazzle and entertain audiences for centuries to come! Don't be left out on this amazing once-in-a-lifetime book! Drawn entirely by the amazing Arthur Adams.

This book features 3 stickers covering the original title of "Gumby's Arthur Adams Specials" (all shown in the images) - the background for this is from bleedingcool.com and makes this quite fun to have:

"...last week saw the publication for the bizarrely named Gumby’s Spring Special, collecting his Winter and Summer Specials, written by the Flaming Carrot’s Bob Burden, now published by Gumby Comics/Wildcard Ink.

But there’s a glitch.

There are stickers on the front and back of the book. Removing the Spring Specials sticker reveals that the books were printed as Gumby’s Arthur Adams’ Specials. Other stickers block out Arthur Adam’s signatures on book.

Why the reticence?

I understand that while the publisher had the rights to the books, Arthur Adams didn’t want to have anything to do with the publisher and took action to keep his name off the cover of the book at least. And the publisher took until the last second to blink.

The publisher? Gumby Comics/Wildcard Ink. That’s Mel Smith’s company. Not the British comedian, but the comics writer/publisher who is… shall we say known to Bleeding Cool. And with whom I have enjoyed a number of email exchanges that have included legal threats and promises that I will be ruined in the comics industry. Basically, if that’s anything to go by, I can see why Art may not have wanted his name on the books

Fun!
