When you’ve had a really long day, and you come home wanting to down a cold one, what could be better than reaching into your icebox (that’s a refrigerator for you young’uns) and pulling out a cold soda with your favorite Dark Horse character featured on the label.
Dark Horse has announced a deal with Jones Soda to produce a limited edition six-pack featuring Eric Powell’s The Goon and Emily the Strange.Â The Goon collection is available now, but only until the first 100 six-packs sell out, with Emily the Strange collection arriving on October 14, 2008.
â€œThis is a really fun way to expose our characters to a whole new market,â€ says Dark Horse President and founder Mike Richardson. â€œWe have a lot of great ideas on how to make this partnership an exciting one and the flexibility and creativity of the Jones staff make them the perfect company for us to work with. Most importantly, we love the soda!â€
Take the jump for a look at all the Goon labels.
This is an ongoing partnership with Jones Soda, so we will certainly see other Dark Horse characters gracing the labels.Â I can’t wait for the Hellboy edition.
