Eric Powell Hits the Road to Celebrate 20 Years of ‘The Goon’

The Goon creator Eric Powell is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of his character by hitting the road for a 23 city tour this year, that will run from March 8 to November 10.

Powell will be travelling the country (and Australia), visiting with long-time fans and spreading The Goon gospel to new converts.  Powell realizes that there may be “… a select few who have not read the Goon in its 20 year existence.  Those unfortunate souls are for the most part survivors of religious cults forbidding all forms of pure joy.But there is a light on the horizon, you victims of programmed mental abuse! The first issue of the new Albatross Funnybook’s The Goon is a perfect jumping on point for new readers and die hard fans alike! If anyone needs help reprogramming your joyless cult existence, I’ll be happy to personally put a copy of The Goon #1 in your hands along any of the 23 stops on my international Goon 20th Anniversary barnstorming tour.” read more
