“I know there are still a select few who have not read The Goon in its 20 year existence. Those unfortunate souls are for the most part survivors of religious cults forbidding all forms of pure joy.” said Eric Powell. “But there is a light on the horizon, you victims of programmed mental abuse! The first issue of the new Albatross Funnybook’s The Goon is a perfect jumping on point for new readers and die hard fans alike! If anyone needs help reprogramming your joyless cult existence, I’ll be happy to personally put a copy of The Goon #1 in your hands along any of the 23 stops on my international Goon 20th Anniversary barnstorming tour.”
