TwoMorrows has so much good stuff that I can’t keep up, I swear. So I was reading BackIssue! #16 and the interview by Michael Eury with Arthur Adams. Adams has done much in the way of badass work, including one of my favorite Marvel two-parters, the X-Men/New Mutants/Asgard storyline from back in the day. He, of course, has done scads of work before and since, and did the artwork on two Gumby specials. So here’s the bit I wanted to share:
EURY: Do you think that Gumby and Pokey could be terrorists?
ADAMS: Not on purpose, but they might accidentally do something where high jinks might ensue.
EURY: Like what?
ADAMS: They might accidentally get some plastique mixed in with their bodies, you never know.
EURY: That would be pretty cool: Gumby, living bomb.
ADAMS: Exactly. He doesn’t know it, but we, the audience, know it.
EURY: There’s your third chapter in the Gumby trilogy.
ADAMS: Oh, my God, at any moment, Gumby could go off! [laughs]
I am going to be thinking about Gumby The Living Bomb for a week now. I hope you two gentlemen, sick as you are, are happy.
