    There's so much to admire about this series so far, from it's intricate and complex nonlinear narrative, to the simply stunning art on display. The overarching story is pushed along to a degree, but this is issue is more an exercise in character building, and it's done with a level of detail that's just incredible. Read Full Review

    The Goon: Occasion of Revenge #2 is an excellent follow-up issue if not in terms of story progression then its great character development and consistent tone that is bold and indelible. Separating this issue into distinct parts worked since each part was engrossing, and the artwork in each panel was as wonderfully haunting as last issue. The characters have really made their mark on me, and I'm really curious to see how, or even if, the different story threads tie together. But at the very least each one adds to the overall mystique of the town and the world it inhabits. And so it's effective in showing why the town would be so valuable to the Coven because of the terrible things it can do to people but also what truly matters and is so endearing to those striving to defend it from the mischievous invaders. And so I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for Goon and his squad. Read Full Review

    I cant spoil anything because its just worth reading and enjoying. Love is found and love is haunting others. There are even poop jokes here so no one takes this too seriously. Powells story is sweet when it needs to be, warm and touching when it wants to be, and brutal and gruesome when it has to be. Pick up last issue if you havent and treat yourself to a double shot ofThe Goonthis week. Read Full Review

    The Goon: Occasion of Revenge may have taken some time to set-up future events, but side stories, and Powell's art more than makes up for the lack of energy. Highly recommended. Read Full Review
