A few of the more notable names in comedic film and television join forces with comics’ best and brightest to bring you a hilarious new perspective on the world of Eric Powell’s The Goon, in this new three-part, black-and-white anthology series.

Click to enlargeWhen asked what possessed him to turn over the reigns to one of comics most rapidly growing series, Eric Powell says, “Dwight Albatross said he wanted to do a Goon anthology just to show how many people could do the Goon better than me. I threatened to smack him in the face with a cast iron skillet but then he said he already had Mike Ploog and Kevin Nolan interested. Seeing those guys draw the Goon sounded like a good idea, even from Dwight.”

In the first issue, humor expert Patton Oswalt (Comedy Central’s Comedians of Comedy and Mr. Show) who’s no stranger to comics (Bizarro Comics, JLA), scribes a short story of Goon’s sidekick Franky, while legendary artist Mike Ploog (Werewolf by Night, Ghost Rider) provides the art.

And that’s just fer starters! Also included is a gooey helping of other short stories by the likes of Steve Niles and Ryan Sook, Bongo Comics’ own Bill Morrison, and the first in a string of serialized shorts from series creator Eric Powell and frequent co-conspirators Tom Sniegoski and Mark Farmer.

Other upcoming creators include: Brian Posehn, Tony Moore, Hilary Barta, Arvid Nelson, Guy Davis, Thomas Lennon, Tom Sniegoski, Mark Farmer, Roger Langridge, and more!

That’s right kids, akters from the tee vee box and all yer favorite funny book creators! It’s The Goon like you’ve never seen it!

The first issue of Dwight T. Albatross's The Goon Noir arrives on sale September 20 carrying a $2.99 price tag.
