God bless Eric Powell, he really knows how to start a book the male cast of Twilight appear and begin glittering and showing off their abs until Goon wanders over and beats the living snot out of them From there Goon and Franky encounter a carnival of freaks out to kill them, Roxi Dlite winds up on Lonely St and brings her brand of trouble with her, and Goon and Franky go on holiday only to wind up battling crazy hobos in swamp Powell gets real for a story similar to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire [...]
Extremely depraved low brow humor that I found find absolutely hilarious We are talking belly laughs here Then Eric Powell goes and does a 1% vs the 99% type story, and I almost found myself cheering for the guy This is awesome And weirdly enough, these books almost seem to get better and better.
A freakshow is busted up when a guy known as The Goon stuffs a human worm headfirst into the mouth of a 10 armed mutant, choking said mutant.Is there than needs to be said to know whether you re on board with this
Genuinely affecting labor history EC comics pastiche followed by laugh out loud lampoon of superhero comics Powell is genius.
Rese a de Sergi Viciana Nota 6,7 Rese a en Fant ficaVaya por delante que soy un gran fan de la serie desde su primer n mero Pero si vosotros no la hab is le do, no empec is por este n mero, porque, para ser sinceros, es bastante flojo El problema es que no se trata de un arco argumental, sino de varias historias cortas e independientes, y aunque alguna s es buena, otras son poco m s que un pu ado de chistes A Eric Powell le pasa un poco como a Mike Mignola, pero al rev s las mejores historias de [...]
I ve always praised the Goon for being just the thing mainstream comics needs It s creator driven and controlled, has witty and sharp writing and looks absolutely gorgeous And not in a dynamic Jim Lee kind of way not that there s anything wrong with that , but in the sense that the art in the Goon is just fun to look at.And then comes volume 11 The Deformed of Body and the Devious of Mind, where, believe it or not, the art has been brought up a couple notches with the addition of Dave Stewart on [...]
Probably every single person who sees this posted on my Facebook feed will NOT read a trade of the Goon, including this one That is ok, though, who knows maybe this review might inspire them The Goon is just about as much fun as you can have reading a comic book This trade is like the previous ten volumes of the goon, funny on every single page The thing is, there is a little bit of seriousness snuck in every so often, this trade is no exception At one point, we get a pretty horrific scene of a [...]
Good stuff here Evan Dorkin of Milk and Cheese fame contributes a story about murderous circus freaks Powell includes a story of abused factory workers and strike breakers, which mixes up history and the occult There s a creepy story about a new arrival at the local orphanage And Powell includes a story that provides an excuse for plenty of pinup style art which is, of course, rather juvenile, as is a story about the Goon on vacation that involves the Goon and Frankie tracking down weiners stole [...]
Ah, Goon It s been way too long since Volume 10, but it s well worth the wait This volume is also a little surprising Here, Powell and friends focus on short stories rather than continuous storylines like most of the previous volumes But the Goon proves to be equally entertaining in the short form The story dealing with the strike of the lady tailors was particularly intriguing as it proved that the Goon, besides being over the top gruesome and funny, can also be poignant More Goon please
This my favorite volume of Powell s The Goon so far All five stories in this book are excellent, but my favorites are the girdle tailors strike and the guest appearance by Roxi Dlite And what s there not to love when the Goon takes a fist to sparkly vampires and superhero comics Eric Powell and Dave Stewart were made for each other Mwhaha This series is so good that I think I m going crazy.
Really enjoyed The Goon The Deformed of Body and the Devious of Mind volume 11 written and illustrated by Eric Powell This graphic novel dealt with a little monster girl, a creepy carnival, burlesque girls, a union strike, the Goon s and Franky s vacation, and a goblin at an Irish wake And, of course, all the stories are twisted and chaotic Loved it Looking forward to reading the next in the series, The Goon Them That Raised Us Lament volume 12.
The Goon battles preppy vampires, a girl that transforms into a blood thirsty monster, vengeful mutants in a carnival, he confronts an exotic dancer with plans to swindle him and does some union work.I guess it s still kinda funny, but it adds nothing to the main story It s just filler.The Billy the Kid arc is just crap, though.
I mostly enjoyed this volume of Goon stories, but the stories lack any of the emotional weight that was present in earlier volumes The stories here are mostly at the level of dirty jokes Sure, they re beautifully inked, frequently funny dirty jokes, but I couldn t help but miss the dash of pathos that really made me care about even these vile characters.
Back in the game Eric Powell got a little soft and sentimental there for a bit with heartbreaking stories ofheartbreak They were good but utterly forgettable and not really in the vein of the series This however is Powell back in control with raunchy and violent humor The way mom used to make.
It s good to see that Powell abandoned the arching story he was pursuing in the last few books to go back to Goon s original spirit of irreverent, sarcastic humour I missed it and now it s come back with a vengeance Brilliant Possibly one of the best issues so far.
As is always the case with The Goon, this is a completely wonderful book than is completely unsuitable for anyone It s gloriously gory and immensely twisted I can t give it any higher praise than that.
The Goon is sick, twisted, depraved, morally bankrupt, politically incorrectd gut bustingly funny If you want to laugh for all the wrong reasons, you need to read The Goon.
I miss the longer story arcs, but all five of the single issue stories in here are entertaining and visually awesome Par for the course.
