V8 Gomer Goof

New

There’s no denying Gomer’s genius. Mechanics, botany, chemistry, zoology, musicology … His brain is capable of sudden brilliance in everything at which he tries his hand. The problem is that, brilliant or not, his inventions are never quite right for either the time, or the place. Which leads to disaster after disaster, fuelling his colleagues’ aggravation. Fortunately, he still has the loyalty of his cat and gull – and the unfailing affection of Miss Jeanne …

Among the many obstacles to Spirou Magazine’s productivity, two of the most formidable are Gomer’s little protégés: a very playful cat and an evil-tempered black-headed gull. Between the bird’s dive- bombing attacks and the feline’s recurrent bouts of madness, Prunelle and the others don’t have it easy. And yet, none of that compares to the results of Aunt Hortense’s overgrown cactus being brought to the office by a clueless Gomer!

The disasters Gomer keeps causing at the Spirou office (and in town, and out of town, and for the Army …) sometimes drive his neighbours and co-workers to regrettable excesses. They shout at him, lock him up, occasionally try to strangle him a bit … Yet he rarely even resents it. Watch out, though! Gomer is also a friend to all creatures big and small, and anyone going after one of his furry or feathered companions is in for a nasty surprise!

Gomer is absolutely peerless when it comes to disrupting life at Spirou Magazine, much to his boss Prunelle’s and long-suffering Mr De Mesmaeker’s chagrin. But don’t you go underestimating him! The truth is that his laziness, his talent for invention and even his love of animals – not to mention his antiquated lemon of a car– are perfectly capable of spreading chaos anywhere, in any season. You can’t even imagine what he can do when it snows!

Nothing is ever simple with Gomer. Between his deplorable sense of timing, his absent-mindedness and his never-ending quest for new ways to avoid work, he causes a lot of fuses to blow – those of his colleagues, De Mesmaeker and poor Prunelle, of course, but also the actual ones at the office. And that is not at all to Alistair Bacus’s taste – the accountant at Spirou Publishing …

Music soothes the wild beast ... and brings down walls! 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!

To work in the same building as a walking disaster like Gomer is no picnic. Between his ‘fun’ chemistry experiments and his attempts at amateur rocketry, no one is spared – co-workers, secretaries, bosses, neighbours... We also discover that he’s just as dangerous outside of work: day at the beach or in the country, weekend between friends or romantic outing – there’s nowhere safe from the undisputed master of the goof!
