Elementary, my dear brother!  The Raven did it. When Boom! Studios sent me an advanced copy of Poe #1, I was certain it would fall into some boring tale of a writer gone mad, so I was not too interested in reading the series.  However, a mere two pages in, and something amazing happened; I discovered a kickin’ story that brings Sherlock Holmes to America.

Dark Horse ComicsMoviesThe Goon

Dark Horse Entertainment is bringing Eric Powell’s Goon to the big screen as a CG animated movie. Created by Eric Powell in 1999, the comic follows the adventures of a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for a feared mobster.
