    I can’t stress enough how this comic needs to be read. This is one of the few books worth more than the cover price. Read Full Review

    This issue feels like a great revival to the series. Although the last few issues weren't terrible, I just wanted more in terms of storytelling and plot development. Issue #41 is a promising start to a new, exciting story arc. I give this issue a 9/10. Read Full Review

    Powell is equally at home writing comedic or straight-up horror, as he effortlessly switches gears to show that the Goon is in for more tragedy and woe while commenting on humanity's greed. Read Full Review

    So it goes, on and on and the stories become more and more grisly. At the end, Powell sets up a coming battle for The Goon. Powell’s sense of what makes the macabre both scary and funny is at the heart of The Goon #41. As you read the book, you're repulsed by a story that you’re laughing at. Powell also makes this work with his particular brand of art. I love how Powell pencils - how much larger and life and dripping with sickening detail his stuff is. The Goon is one of those books that sneaks up on you and knocks you out. Read Full Review
