One character I'm not tired of, though, is this guy:
That's the Goon. He's the star of a dark supernatural comedy comic that I've been following in trades for the past couple years. In fact, the icon on this post is a scan from the comic.
Did I mention it's a dark comedy? It's very dark and damn funny. The Goon is the muscle for a gangster in a 1930's Hell--the streets are filled with crime and run by crime bosses, the crime bosses are bayou sorcerers who use zombies as enforcers, and the Goon's pals include a giant spider (who's not very good at cards).
But the trade I just finished this week: Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker is something else. If you click on the link above, and go to the preview Dark Horse offers, the very second page says nothing more than "This Ain't Funny."
And it ain't. It's grim and sad, and it contains five full pages spreads in a row of a face. Just a face going through torment and heartbreak.
God, it was incredibly powerful stuff. Highly recommended.
