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 […]
This trailer is… interesting. I remember when Goon came out, it was pretty well recieved. Nothing ground breaking, but a fairly good natured if not lewd sports comedy. Now over five years later, we are gearing up for a second. The film is out March 2017, and this new trailer, posted on JoBlo Movie Trailers, is […]

We've run a few break out pieces for the new Hellboy comic and Chuck Palahniuk talking Fight Club 2, but Dark Horse had plenty to discuss in their ComicsPRO presentation to comic book retailers… Dark Horse was keen to show off the The Art Of He Man and talked about strong orderdahead of its April launch, and tied […]
These signs are winging their way to a comic store near you soon, featuring the very recognisable tone of Eric Powell's The Goon explaining store policy and procedures to its customers in a rather gruff voice. Even if that language might have to be slightly amended for fear of offending the littlest eyes. Though it's […]
Suiciders from Lee Bermejo and DC/Vertigo on the front… …and Eric Powell's Goon from Dark Horse on the back. While the order form… …is all abut the webcomic Help Us! Great Warrior by Madéleine Flores debuting in print from Boom! The look of the new Diamond Previews for December…
Liz Hey reports from NYCC You can always expect that any Dark Horse panel you attend at Comic Con is going to be one of the most metal ones you see that day, and when it begins with your moderator not having a voice because he lost it at a Judas Priest concert, you shouldn't […]
Jaymes Reed is the letter on Crossed. But he has a more diverse past. As a comic creator, he debuted a character in the anthology comic, Best Cellars #1. Which recently entered the Eighty Dollar Club on Bleeding Cool due to an early appearance from Eric Powell's The Goon. And he's got a boxful. He writes, […]
Dark Horse Comics are insistent that Eric Powell's The Goon is heading back to schedule. More to discover at ECCC, apparently, but here's the Jack Davis cover of the oneshot (June) and an example page…
A ton of comics seem to have landed on my desk this week. Massive Wednesday before Black Friday. So what have I been reading… and what will you be reading too? Bristols… time for a bit of rhyming slang folks, to help you understand Justice League Dark a little better. "Bristol… Bristol City… Titty." Though, […]

Matt Harding writes for Bleeding Cool: Day 3: Saturday Artist Alley and Small Press Reviews Hallelujah, I made it through the day without my awesome "Wolfman Bill Clinton" action figure being crushed to smithereens in my awkward giant shwag-bag. One of the coolest booths that I found is a toy manufacturer named "Heroes in Action" […]
Devin T Quin writes from San Diego Comic Con for Bleeding Cool; The line for the Goon panel snaked around itself five times, and the Con staff had to squish all in attendance to the wall to prevent breaking fire codes. I've been going to Goon panels since they started having them, back when Dark […]
If all goes to plan, production will start next summer on a sequel to the funny, brutal Ice Hockey comedy that gave Seann William Scott a career-best role.
I really don't support their Kickstarter, but I do have a positive solution to offer.
The Goon is alive! Sort of. And you can make it so! Kind of.
Bleeding Cool ran the cover to Goon #39 a while back, and I made a point to buy it as a result. Then, when picking it up, I noticed something else that made me smile quite a lot. The publisher's logo. Go on, lets take a closer look. Yup, it's a plaster. The whole […]
