Horror News Network’s Comic Awards 2019: Artist of the Year

Horror News Network would like to congratulate Eric Powell for his 2019 Artist of the Year Award for his work on The Goon, Grumble vs. The Goon, Spookhouse Halloween Special, a variety of cover work, and his first art collection, The Art (and Many Other Mistakes) of Eric Powell.

Powell returned to his fan favorite title The Goon this year to mark the 20th anniversary of the character.  He also brought the title back to his own company Albatross Funnybooks.  As usual, the new Goon series returned to form, and as Powell told HNN, “I’ve always done The Goon without any boundaries or limitations in mind, and I’ve always taken the book in the direction that I was feeling at the time.” read more

‘Hellboy vs Lobster Johnson: The Ring of Death’ Artist Mike Norton: The Horror News Network Interview

Mike Norton tackled the artistic duties on the new one-shot entitled Hellboy vs. Lobster Johnson: The Ring of Death and he shared some of his ideas about returning to Hellboy, as well as his critically acclaimed new series from Albatross Funnybooks, Grumble. read more
