Over the past few years, fans have missed the monsters, mayhem, and mirth that Eric Powell’s The Goon always provides. Even though the artist/writer has kept busy with a variety of other projects (Hillbilly, Spook House, and tons of covers and Mondo art), Powell is about to reunite with the character that made him famous. Powell took some time out of his busy schedule to share some news about his company (Albatross Funnybooks) and the triumphant return of everyone’s favorite tough guy in this exclusive interview.
Fans of Eric Powell and his non-nonsense, zombie-smashing, stone-faced hero the Goon have cause to celebrate today, because Powell will be bringing new stories starring his most famous creation to his publishing company Albatross Funnybooks in 2019! An all new Goon comic book will debut from Albatross Funnybooks with a new The Goon #1 next spring. This will be the first new Goon story to be published since Dark Horse’s The Goon: Once Upon a Hard Time hard cover graphic novel in 2015, and according to the official press release , “…will kick off a year-long, 20th anniversary celebration featuring a national signing tour, Albatross Funnybooks’ collected editions of classic Goon graphic novels, limited edition Goon tiki mugs and more.” read more
