Peppermint ice cream-flavored PRICKLE preview! Here's the cover art....

Catch a Prickle by his yellow stegosaurus-like tail?

A sneak peak of a work in progress: the second in the GUMBY'S GANG series that I wrote, GUMBY'S GANG STARRING PRICKLE, is on the way. I've seen the finished art, by cartoonist Chris Grine ("Igor"), and it's looking nice 'n' Prickle-licious, on a par with Rafael Navarro's solid art for our GUMBY'S GANG STARRING POKEY book. Different yet compatible, the art in PRICKLE will deliver, and the issue itself will send Prickle on an adventure as ambitious and epic as the one Pokey takes in his solo book. Of course, Gumby and Pokey make appearances.

Here's the official blurbage for the issue:

Prickle heads for England in search of his ancestral roots and finds out more about dragons and dinosaurs than he bargained for! Meanwhile, the Blockheads' evil robot version of Prickle has infiltrated Gumby's rock band and is wreaking havoc on Gumby, Pokey and Goo. Will Toy Town survive the wrath of… The Prickletron 8000?!

Look for GUMBY'S GANG STARRING PRICKLE in comic book shops in February 2011. Of course, stay tuned here for announcements as release time arrives.

Holy Claymation!! Mecha-Prickle?! WOW!

I love that this series is giving some good spotlights on the other Gumby cast members. Mark me down for a copy, Mikey!

Ha-ha! Mecha-Prickle to Prickle: "It's on!"

Wait till you see Chris Grine's interior art. He's a fun cartoonist.

You've got it, Javy!
