If you have ever met me and asked “What comic should I read” I would ask, “Do you find racial slurs, blasphemy, gay jokes, poop, violence, dick and fart jokes, or just crude behavior offensive?” if you answered no, I would say “The Goon, hands down”. With that laundry list of base humor how could a sophisticated gentleman such as myself enjoy this? It has one of the deepest story lines ever put to paper and the characters and dialogue are so perfect it’s like reading art. Eric Powell, the creator, artist, and writer behind the series is someone who would seem like a hell of a guy to share a drink with and his art is absolutely beautiful. Not for the easily offended, The Goon is one of the best comics of all time.
