Beware all undead minions and other variegated doers of badness! Rouse up trouble with the honest folks of Lonely Street and it's the Goon you'll answer to! Robot or alien, werewolf or vampire, zombie or gorilla (or zombie-gorilla), it makes no difference to the Goon — he'll serve you up a mouthful of broken teeth right quick, as evidenced by the fine tales collected in this fine volume — the third in the ever-expanding line chronicling the triumphs and tragedies of the lone man brave enough to stand against the Zombie Priest and his ghoulish army of ... um ... ghouls. This volume also includes a very special guest appearance by Hellboy co-written and drawn by award-winning Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola!

From Publishers Weekly:

Lovers of monster comics, zombie capers and brooding heroes will enjoy the third Goon collection, with its loving mockery of horror conventions. The Goon himself is a Bogart-type antihero, and his "Rick's Café" is Norton's Pub, a dead-end joint in a landscape equal parts English village and Depression-era Chicago. This volume contains four distinct tales of peril. The first involves saving the world from the minions of the nameless man, a zombie priest; high points include an obnoxious psychic seal, an enormous robot and this beautiful bit of dialogue: "Release the great zombie chimp!" The second story features a malevolent, tentacled creature who gets his English from an "Interdimensional to English Dictionary." Somehow, the story evolves into a battle between a fire-breathing lizard and an enormous gorilla. The third piece is a guest appearance by Hellboy, drawn by Mike Mignola. Much of the fun of this tale comes from the culture clash experienced by Hellboy himself—the rest from an evil, giant octopus. The final story, "The Vampire Dame Had to Die," ventures into the gothic realm, with pretentious vampires and one very dangerous undead lady. Powell's striking art captures the ghoulish fun perfectly. If the occasional bit of potty humor seems senselessly over the top, it's quickly forgiven in the swirl of action and laughs in this tasty collection. (Mar.)
