The Thing and The Goon



I have to admit that I haven't yet had a chance to try out The Goon, but I kept getting requests for this team-up so I thought I would give it a try. Reading up on The Goon, it does seem like a series that I would enjoy quite a bit. I really enjoy the artwork by Eric Powell, as I have been a fan of his contributions to Marvel and DC. I also liked the teaser for a possible Goon film, the animation looked great and the characters seem like they stepped right out of the comics. Hopefully, plans for that film will come to fruition, because it looks like a ton of fun.

Dave sez,

Wicked cool cover!

I think The Goon is a Dark Horse character...along the same lines as Sin City, but not part of that universe...

That's the best part of any team-up! Discovering characters you didn't know nothin' about before!

Thats exactly right, Dave! Some of my fondest memories are of walking to the corner newsstand near my catholic elementary school with friends and discovering yet another obscure character through either Brave & the Bold or DC Presents (Rose & the Thorn?? Who's she?) LOL

This is something that is still quite possible

He's not really Sin City like He fits monsters

I was wondering when you'd get around to this one, since you love those pairings with possible poker table buddies.
