Amazing World of Gumball: Midsummer Nightmare

My fifth Gumball OGN script with Boom! studios. It was a blast to fit as many Shakespeare references in one ghost-filled story as possible.

official summary: When Gumball and Darwin unleash a curse upon Elmore Junior High and all the students get sick, it’s up to them to put on the school play alone!

IT’S THE PHANTOM OF ELMORE!

All Darwin wants is a starring role in Elmore Junior High’s latest theatrical production...too bad he can’t stand the spotlight! Roping in Gumball to audition with him, Darwin accidentally helps unleash a curse on the school by speaking the name of the play that was so horrific, it gave a student a mortal case of stagefright. When students start falling victim to the sickness caused by the curse, Gumball and Darwin must do everything in their power to complete the show and cure their fellow classmates.

Join writer Megan Brennan (Steven Universe, Pencil Pup) and artist Jenna Ayoub (Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy) as Elmore’s favorite pair of siblings discover what it truly takes to fulfill theater’s greatest promise: the show must go on!
