Following up on a similarly sarcastic but inescapably funny variant cover from earlier this year, the latest Dark Horse press release in support of The Goon defies you not to check out the deeply irreverent, typically hilarious, frequently vulgar and always beautifully illustrated series by Eric Powell.
The series follows the adventures of the titular Goon and his diminutive but excessively ornery companion Frankie as they fight (and drink) their way thro
The comics medium attempts to answer a lot of big questions: Given great power, would you use it responsibly? What means are justified, when the ends are noble? If your life had a face, could I punch it? In that spirit, ComicsAlliance's Matt Wilson is asking comics creators, retailers and commentators some big questions of his own.
While the publisher's San Diego Comic-Con programming was focused on its various franchises like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Horse Presents, Star Wars and Bioware, Dark Horse made a number of new and returning horror comics series announcements throughout the SDCC weekend.

Rocktober? Shocktober? Mohawktober? Here at ComicsAlliance, we just can't decide what we want to celebrate this month, so we're bringing you a different monthly theme every day! Today, we're celebrating the second most brutal fictional death metal band of all time, Dethklok, seen above performing the pretty amazing act of poisoning readers with their own blood in the pages of Eric Powell and Brendon Small's Dethklok vs. The Goon!

Among the most beloved creator-owned franchises of Dark Horse Comics is of course The Goon. Written and illustrated by Eric Powell, the series follows the adventures of the titular Goon and his diminutive but excessively ornery companion Frankie as they fight (and drink) their way through every form of fantastical threat, from zombies to ghosts to monsters to robots to cannibals to super scientists and beyond. The Goon mixes over-the-top gore with twisted, laugh-out-l
Consider writer Tim Seeley, interior artist Wellington Alves and covers artist Eric Powell are the new Masters of the Universe and they won't even have to don furry briefs... as far as we know. The trio wi
With its beautiful art and stories that blend genuine tragedy, disturbing horror and the physical comedy that comes from having a main character who makes a habit of punching out street-walking mules, Eric Powell's The Goon is hands down one of my favorite comics on the stands. And this week, after a hiatus lasting almost two years, the book is returning to the stands with The Goon #34, in which the title character takes on what the solicitation describes as "a bunch of gothy vampires."
The Eisner award-winning creator of The Goon, Eric Powell released over the weekend a short film promoting The Creators Front for Diversity in Comics, a new campaign for activism in support of creator-owned comics.
