Jimmy loves comics. When he's sick and unable to play basketball, he begins working on his own comic. The true story of Jimmy Gownley's first foray into comics may inspire doodlers and readers to act on their own "dumb ideas". Who knows, in the future, it may be their books sitting on bookstore shelves. — Marika McCoola


What if the dumbest idea ever turned your life upside down?

At thirteen, Jimmy was popular, at the top of his class, and the leading scorer on his basketball team. But all that changed when chicken pox forced him to miss the championship game. Things went from bad to worse when he got pneumonia and missed even more school. Before Jimmy knew it, his grades were sinking and nothing seemed to be going right.

How did Jimmy turn things around, get back on top at school, and land a date with the cutest girl in class?

Renowned comics creator Jimmy Gownley shares his adventures as he grows from an eager-to-please boy into a teenage comic book artist. This is the real-life story of how the DUMBEST idea ever became the BEST thing that ever happened to him.
