Eric Powell writes, pencils and inks The Goon, which is one of the few comics that I buy EVERY time it comes out. Dark Horse just picked up The Goon so if you wanna beat the crowd, get on board now! You'll also find Eric's work on the covers to DC's Arkham Asylum: Living Hell six issue mini-series starting in May.

Eric did his version of Sly when I caught up with him at MegaCon. I was so tempted to get a Goon sketch but just had to have Eric in the SZ Gallery. Eric's take reminds me of a sports drawing from the '30's.

Rough Stuff, a trade paperback which collects The Goon's first three issues is now available.

I'll bet it's the first graphic novel to come with a "director's commentary!" Yep, a trade paperback book with a director's commentary.

Isn't that just goony?
