About this title


Described as "EC by way of Looney Tunes," multiple award-winning cult hit The Goon has quickly risen to the forefront of hot creator-owned titles. Now a heapin' helping of the top names in comics and comedy put a new spin on their favorite characters! Among the distinguished creators featured in this, the very first Goon anthology, are comedians Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn (both of Comedy Central's Comedians of Comedy and Mr. Show), Reno: 911 co-creator Thomas Lennon, B.P.R.D. scribe John Arcudi, comics great Kevin Nowlan (Tomorrow Stories, Sandman, Superman), fan-favorite Humberto Ramos (Revelations, Spider-Man), Steve Niles, Ryan Sook, Mike Ploog, Bill Morrison, Arvid Nelson, Tony Moore, Hilary Barta, Roger Langridge, Scott Allie and Todd Herman. Powell himself and frequent co-conspirators Tom Sniegoski and Mark Farmer also present the three-part "Peg Leg Full of Heaven," featuring the Little Unholy Bastards, and erstwhile publisher Dwight T. Albatross contributes a little somethin' for the ladies. See the Goon universe as never before in The Goon Noir!

From Booklist:

The Goon already parodies 1930s gangster B movies—to say nothing of zombies—so noir isn't much of a stretch for creator Powell's tough guy's tough guy. In fact, it's just a matter of subtracting color. All these stories are in black and white. But is this only, as a banner declares in The Man of the Hour, in which Goon-o doesn't appreciate a roast in his honor, a 'Batman Black and White' Rip-Off? Nuts t' dat! With new creators for every story, it's a zombie-bashin' jamboree. There are no duds here, yet the most unusual narrative strategies yield the most satisfying pieces. Hilary Barta's speechless tour-de-force, Reap What You Sow, boldly demonstrates that, though The Goon owes its success to snappy patter, it doesn't strictly need the wisecracks. Roger Langridge superimposes visitors from another medium (Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) over a typical Goon knockdown blast-out and achieves perhaps the funniest, certainly the drollest, contribution. Rants by the titular Mr. Albatross precede, intermit, and follow the flow of stories with risible effrontery. Olson, Ray
