    I don't know what I expected when coming into The Goon #1 but it certainly wasn't this – I loved the supernatural tinged depression era story that never once left me feeling as though I was jumping into a story 20 years in the making with no idea of who the Goon is (although I totally am). The Goon #1 is the kind of comic you can read without any preconceived notions, nor any need to worry about understanding the rules of the universe – it's fun, entertaining, and offers the reader a great example of good comics.

    The Goon #1 celebrates the two-decade-long legacy for this series by beginning a new with a return to what was. This is not an issue that will wow you with its plot, but by putting the focus on the characters and this world we are able to see what exactly sets this world apart. Fun, funny, and full of life this is a relaunch will satisfy both new and old. Read Full Review
