The Goon, Eric Powell’s pastiche of the early comic universe, from gangsters to zombies, is one of the most consistently entertaining comics currently running. His work is of such a singular vision, the way only a writer/illustrator’s can be. Every panel has some new joy to offer.

In this latest volume, the Goon and sidekick Franky get a new set of wheels. Meanwhile, nemesis the Zombie Priest has to answer to his overlords for his repeated failures at the hand of the Goon. Something sinister is afoot at Madame Elsa’s Burlesque, and the Goon thinks he just spotted the supposed-to-be dead Labrazio.

Humor, pathos, zombie gore – this book’s got everything.
