The Goon #22

$6.00
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
Written and art by Eric Powell.
As the Zombie Priest descends further and further into madness, the ends to which he will go to thwart the Goon know no bounds! Summoning powers which are beyond even his own comprehension, the Priest unleashes an unholy abomination on the unsuspecting denizens of their humble berg. But will this nightmarish fiend be too much for even the Priest to control? Find out as Eric Powell's Eisner Award-winning series begins a new chapter in the ongoing chronicles of a man named Goon and his unshakeable sidekick Franky!
REVIEW by BRIAN FISHER

There are three things about this issue of Goon that are deviations from Powell's normal formula. A) it's a continuation from last issue (most issues of Goon are stand alone stories that can be read independently of each other), B) It's almost completely straightforward drama (Powell usually infuses each issue with a healthy dose of derisive humor) and C) it actually made it to shelves within a month of the last issue. Deviations aside, this continues the above-board quality that can always be expected out of the Goon. Along with the recent release of the Goon OGN, Chinatown this may be signaling a change of pace for Powell. Things definitely seem to be coming to a head in the Goon-iverse (see what I did there?) as the "priests" send a familiar and unwelcome face from the Goon's past to torment him. Powell is one of the more remarkable and consistent artists in the industry and he tops even his own usual high quality in this issue. Props to Dave Stewart for his beautiful coloring job as well. .
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
