With Powell's stunning artwork, The Goon's unique mash-up of horror, mob intrigue, and the sickest sense of humor in comics is an instant classic.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A Place of Heartache and Grief (2009) got the three-decker arc about the return of ostensibly dead gangster Labrazio rolling a mite sluggishly. Part 2, launched from the backstory of the wraith known as the Buzzard, is way more like it; that is, full of mutants, violence, and the regulars behaving no better than ever (probably worse). What makes the book hum, however, are the add-ons: seven short stories by hands other than Powell's, who all, like the contributors to the tributary anthology Dwight T. Albatross's The Goon Noir (2007), are inspired to the heights of soiled giddiness by the outrageously mordant horror-gangster parody that is The Goon. Most of them like more color and light than Powell does, apply even more caricatural figure stylings, and write wilder insult and body-function humor, at least in this collection. Four of the shorties are episodes in the priceless bait-and-switch saga of good-guy-zombie Willy's stolen pecker. The Goon remains one of the best things to blame on, eventually, Harvey Kurtzman's MAD.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2009 Booklist"
