“There aren’t many characters

like the Goon in comics and there

aren’t many creators as unique and

enjoyable as Eric Powell.” —IGN


“There is no match for this

comic in look or content.”

—Comic Bastards


“Powell’s story is sweet when it needs to be,

warm and touching when it wants to be,

and brutal and gruesome when it has to be.”

—Bloody Disgusting


After the tragic events of Occasion of Revenge, the witch coven believes that control of the unnamed town will soon be in their grasp and the Goon’s tragic soul will contribute to the curse that increases their power.
