Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Taking place in a 1930s slum that's a cross between H.P. Lovecraft and Little Orphan Annie-where homicidal refugees from the Little Rascals fight over fish guts, zombies are almost commonplace, but the appearance of a colossal transvestite is a matter worthy of interrupting a mission to dynamite a haunted evil burlesque house-the crazy, wonderful and macabre adventures of the Goon continue in this new collection that gets only one criticism: it is much too short, even at 128 pages. It's a dense package, a masterful blending of story and art, but newcomers to the series may find themselves adrift. The Goon, a hulking giant, is still dealing with the Zombie Priest, but other, more powerful and evil villains are working behind-the-scenes, and the return of the Bird Girls is a portent: old foes are out of the grave, especially one very angry nemesis. It seems Labrazio, the Goon's original archenemy, is on the streets, spreading mayhem and murder-or is he? Creator Powell uses humor and his offbeat imagination to take what could be a grim story-the bad guys always seem to have the upper hand-into a colorful, breathless page-turner. (June)
