Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz bring to you their high-concept horror book wherein Billy the Kid is traveling the globe with a band of circus freaks, encountering murderous monstrosities along the way. With an emphasis on the weird, is this a book meant for you? Major Spoilers has the review!
At the Dark Horse Creators Panel yesterday Eric Powell gave out no news on The Goon finally coming to theaters. Well apparently he was waiting to make the announcement on an even bigger stage, Twitter.
Come on down to a land where zombies roam, de-monic go-rillas join the fight, and the crooked owners get theirs. It is the world of The Goon.
A while ago we showed you the teaser footage for Eric Powell’s Goon animated film. Now Powell has posted an early Goon test film that plays out as a PSA about dealing with zombies.
Dark Horse Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of The Goon #34 that arrives in stores this week.
Up from the depths, 30 stories high…SKREEEOOOONK! Take the jump!
The other day, Major Spoilers showed you the trailer to the Goon short that was shown at the San Diego Comic Con. Today, we bring you everything shown to the fans gathered at the show.
The new footage is a longer clip created by Blur Studios to showcase the project, which is based on Eric Powell’s celebrated Dark Horse Comics series and produced by award-winning filmmaker David Fincher. “The Goon” team is looking for a studio to snatch up the project and finance production, and after seeing the footage here it probably won’t be long until that happens.
Clancy Brown voices The Goon, with Paul Giamatti voicing Franky.
I saw the still from this teaser some time ago, and I think Blur Studio’s has really captured the look and feel of Eric Powell’s Goon character and the universe. MTV’s Splashpage has the first look of the art in motion, and it looks wonderful.
Fans and critics alike rejoiced in 2008, when creator Eric Powell took his redneck zombie noir, The Goon, monthly for an entire calendar year. Following the release of the landmark graphic novel Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker, Powell laid out his most complex story line to date, spanning twelve issues. In 2009, the creator celebrated the tenth anniversary of the title, releasing a special anniversary issue to coincide with a burlesque anniversary party in his honor in Nashville, followed by a special all-silent issue in November. While both were strong standalone issues, the significantly lighter release schedule left fans wondering whatâ€™s next for the madcap mercenary.
The Goon by Eric Powell is one of those well kept comic book secrets that really needs a lot more attention than it has been given over the last couple of years.Â Issue #33 is one of those issues that attempts to do something different by keeping the words to a minimum.
On the next Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew is cracking open Eric Powell’s first volume of The Goon stories from Albatross Exploding Funny Books.
