    The question becomes, "if I've never read The Goon, is this the place to start?" Probably. I mean if you want a deep backstory for the characters and to know why their altogether then you won't get that here. What you will get is a story that feels inclusive. You don't have to have read every issue of The Goon to read Theatre Bizarre. You just need to understand what the story is doing and get that there's going to be a mixture of comedy and drama when the story calls for it. Or if you're just a fan of Halloween one-shots, then check this baby out. Read Full Review

    With Powell's fact-based writing and Dunivant's dramatic artwork/coloring, this is the perfect story for October, when the mere thought of Halloween is in the back of all our minds. It's the season to get scared, and the creative team of this one-shot sure does help us with that endeavor. Read Full Review

    Ok so it's weird, really weird. It feels like it's meant to be an adult book but the language used is very pg-13 while the art of Roxi is very grown up. It's gorgeously drawn, switches from cartoony to dark gothic and back very beautifully. Read Full Review
