The Goon: Fancy Pants Edition
Eric Powell
Dark Horse Comics
Eric Powell's beautifully crafted horror-comedy stories about a thug named Goon get the treatment they deserve in this Fancy Pants hardcover edition. The Goon is not your everyday thug: Not only does he have to worry about collecting for his protection racket, he's also the first line of defense whenever the latest zombie horde or mad scientist decides to attack his town. When the stories were first printed in The Goon series they seemed to be random standalone tales, but Powell has ordered them chronologically to show that he does have a master plan for the series and its titular character's ongoing battle against the nameless zombie priest.
