Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Iced Tea Smack Down
A few weeks ago, the website exploded over a comment made by the fearless leader over his distaste for sweet tea. While we thought things would die down, last week’s phone call proved people still want to debate the iced tea flavoring.
The Goon: Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker
Dark Horse is very proud to present the first original graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning creator Eric Powell. Powell has been sowing the seeds of Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker for years in his bimonthly series The Goon, and salivating fans may now feast their eyes on the Goon’s formative backstory of love, loss, and extortion – a lengthy tale that demanded to be told in this uninterrupted format. Spiritual leader of Tennessee and hero to the Great Unwashed, Powell escaped catastrophic death and mother-shaming scandal to bring this work to fruition. He’s a sensitive man in insensitive times. But be warned: This book ain’t funny.
