The Goon Once Upon A Hard Time Part 3 of 4 review

The latest Goon series is phantasmically fantastic. The Goon is a righteous read, with the look and feel of a classic 50's EC comic. The shadowy colored artwork, sewn together with some heavy paranormal themes, caught my eye upon first glance. A few more glances reveal haunting faces lurking in the background of the art, plenty of gore and a sidekick that looks like the male version of Little Orphan Annie. The Goon and his gang of paranormal pals fight off any lurking evil that comes to take over their cursed, small town. The spirit of all the EC comics that were burned in the 50's lurks somewhere within the pages of these comic books. Fans of MAD's Jack Davis will absolutely love this book to pieces.


(Original posting) The Goon, My Murderous Childhood is filled with zombies, a talking spider, a trash talking sidekick and cannibalistic hobos. The Goon is just what the doctor ordered if want to read something other than the classic superhero-type stuff. The artwork is excellent as well.
