Halloween Day 5: The Goon

Halloween Day 5: The Goon published on No Comments on Halloween Day 5: The Goon

The Goon is my kind of comic. Chalk full of zombies, monsters, cannibal hobos, communist airborne mollusks, fish men and some of the best dialog in comics, The Goon is a delightful horror treat any time of year but especially around Halloween. The Goon is masterfully drawn by Eric Powell and written so wonderfully that it can go from being one of the funniest comics out there to the most heartfelt and saddening comic on the shelf in the same issue. The Goon is not only what horror comics should be but what comics in general should be.
