Pop in your quarters and see what pops out of GUMBALLS-a brand-new- one-man anthology comic from Portland cartoonist Erin Nations! His bright- candy-colored palette and crisp linework pop off the page- while his stories reflect a fascination with humanity in all its diverse foibles - hinting at one of his earliest creative influences- Matt Groening. In Gumballs #1- Erin serves up a delicious variety of stories: recollections of growing up as a triplet- interactions with oddball grocery-store customers- the adventures of clueless dork Tobias- painfully funny faux Personal Ads- and 'Tales of Being Trans'-reflections on Erin's true-life journey of gender transition. • Gumballs tips its hat to the classic alt-comic tradition of Eightball- Optic Nerve- and Box Office Poison- but speaks with a delightfully fresh voice for the modern age.
