Loaning Your Comic Book to Goofus can be Scary!
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Leslie Harrington | Share link:

Oh, that Goofus! He just doesn’t know how to take care of things-his own stuff or your stuff. It’s not out of meanness that he messes up sometimes- he just can be a little clueless. The art brief was to show Goofus and a friend at a Halloween party. Goofus is dressed as a magnifying glass (which was a challenge) and his friend is a Robot. Goofus is returning a borrowed comic book back to his friend, which is good, but his greasy pizza fingers have left messy marks all over the cover, which is bad. Thankfully, for Goofus he has good friends who will forgive him and will remain his friends. Next time that Goofus wants to borrow something they will remind him what happened, “the last time.” A lesson learned for both!
