THE GOON

The Goon series by Eric Powell is by far my most favourite comic series I have ever read. Let's just take a look at the facts here: zombies, monsters, aliens, inter-dimensional portals, a psychic seal, booze, murder, voodoo, betrayal, TNT, pie...come on! It just doesn't get any better! Oh yes it does! It's hilarious. I rarely find myself laughing out loud when I read things but I do it often with this comic. I find myself constantly falling in love with the comic over and over and tell Kamala at the end of each page "I love this comic." Recently, a 3 issue side-series called "The Goon Noir" was released. These were co-written by numerous comedians (Brian Posehn, Patton Oswalt, Thomas Lennon) and I can't wait for the compilation of these issues to come out in July.

But coming sooner, in April, the controversial issue entitled "Satan's Sodomy Baby" is set to come out. According to Dark Horse it is "the single most offensive, controversial, and flat-out loathsome comic ever published by Dark Horse." I'm jumping into my Delorian now and going back to the future to get my issue tonight!

Head here for a more detailed explanation to the series.

Upon reading your post about "The Goon" I went out and bought the first of the series. It sucks. It is boring.It isn't funny. Now I'm starting to question this whole existance of Sasquatch thing, too. You may be a fraud.
