Gaston is a gag-a-day comic strip created in 1957 by the Belgian cartoonist André Franquin in the magazine Spirou. The series focuses on the everyday life of Gaston Lagaffe, a lazy and accident-prone office junior. Gaston is very popular in Europe but except for a few pages by Fantagraphics in the early 1990s (as Gomer Goof), there has been no published English translation.
Keeping that same translated name, Cinebook are to publish the first English volume of Franquin’s Gaston Lagaffe – as Gomer Goof. The first volume, Mind The Goof, will be published in June.
Welcome to the offices of Spirou Magazine. Everyone here is hard at work to keep the magazine ticking, from reporters to secretaries, including editor Fantasio and even, occasionally, Spirou himself. Everyone? Well, not quite… There’s that office boy, Gomer. No one’s entirely sure what his job description is, or how he got hired. One thing is certain, though: he’s a walking disaster zone. From work-shirking scheme to disastrous invention, enter the hilarious world of the most famous layabout of all.
