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.”
Powell’s instantly recognizable style has been entertaining monster fans for years, and each issue of The Goon always delivers the irreverent storytelling that Powell is known for. Even though Powell is now busy running his own company, fans hope to see more interior and exterior art from him in 2020.
The Goon, Grumble vs. The Goon, and Spookhouse Halloween Special are available directly from Albatross Funnybooks and your local comic book store. Boom Studios The Art (and Many Other Mistakes) of Eric Powell is available from the Boom Studios website and finer book stores everywhere.
