This “milking it for all it’s worth” edition reissues Eric Powell’s earliest Goon tales, from the zombie-killing mob enforcer’s pre-Dark Horse days. The result is something like watching early “Simpsons” episodes: The characters look like crude imitations of themselves, the tone is a little off, but its latent greatness is still apparent.

This volume includes three full-length stories, strips originally published online, unused strips and excerpts from Powell’s sketchbook, which include his earliest character designs. Also included are an introduction by the Goon and Frankie. It’s a must have for the legions of Goon diehards. Newcomers are better off starting with Volume 1.
