Missing Goon? No, Eric Powell’s The Goon Will Just Publish Out Of Order

We just ran the October solicitation for The Goon #7 and the second Goon Omnibus. But it’s the upcoming two issues that currently concern us. We don’t know how, we don’t know why, though we may suspect who. But the upcoming issues of The Goon #5 and 4, will be published out of order.

This Wednesday will see the publication of The Goon #5 by Eric Powell from Albatross Funnybooks. Some people, whose last copy was The Goon #3, will wonder where #4 went. Did they miss it? Did it not get delivered? Are they ridiculously forgetful? Whereas in fact The Goon #4 will actually be out on August 21st.

Now don’t worry about spoilers, each issue features a self-contained story. And you are quite able to read them in the published order instead of the intended chronological order. But hopefully this will keep some folk placated…
