Parting Shot: ‘The Goon’ Cover Pokes Fun at Superhero Comic Sales Gimmicks

The Goon takes aim at superhero sales gimmicks on the cover of its 39th issue (not, as it claims, Death of The Goon #1), out on April 25th:

In order to try to compete with the gimmicks and rehashes of the Big Two superhero companies, Eric Powell has decided to completely sell out and relaunch the Goon in this super-epic, brand new, first-ever first edition of the 39th issue of The Goon! Not only do the Goon and Franky get new costumes, but we also discover there are different-colored versions of the Goon! Green Goon! Red Goon! Blue Goon! Purple Goon! WHAT A PLOT!
