Description

Dark Horse is very proud to present the first original graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning creator Eric Powell. Powell has been sowing the seeds of "Chinatown" and the "Mystery of Mr Wicker" for years in his bimonthly series "The Goon", and salivating fans may now feast their eyes on the "Goon"'s formative backstory of love, loss, and extortion - a lengthy tale that demanded to be told in this uninterrupted format. Spiritual leader of Tennessee and hero to the "Great Unwashed", Powell escaped catastrophic death and mother-shaming scandal to bring this work to fruition. He's a sensitive man in insensitive times. But be warned: This book ain't funny.

Although he had been eking out a meager living in the comics field since 1995, Eric didn't find true success until he launched his critically acclaimed dark comedy series The Goon.

Recently, Eric has been working in collaboration with acclaimed director David Fincher, Blur Studio, and Dark Horse Entertainment to bring The Goon to life on the big screen as an animated feature film.
