So Excited My Ears Are Buzzing
Chinatown is Almost Here!

Oh, oh! Check it out, a sneak peek at the long-awaited The Goon: Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker!

Everyone knows how much my staff and I love Eric Powell's fantastic funnybook of zombie-punching redneck fun, The Goon, so I'm sure it's no surprise that when I popped by the Dark Horse Comics website this morning to see what was going on in their wonderful corner of the internets I practically fell out of my chair to see they've quietly updated with a sneak peek of this glorious original graphic novel.

And somehow nobody is talking about this already? For shame comics industry, for shame!

I'm told through the grapevine at the local tavern that Mister Powell has been locked up in his log cabin this last year with nothing but a bottle of hootch, a whole roasted pig, and a big fat stack of bristol board in order to get this book done... and I couldn't be happier to know that my Isotope friends and neighbors get to be among the first to get to indulge in the greatness that is his latest work!

Check out the sneak peek right here, amigos.

And for those of you out there who feel the love like I do and want to ensure getting yourselves a copy right away, you know what to do right? Drop me a line or give me a call, I'll personally ensure you get a copy put aside in the Isotope's hermetically-sealed titanium vault!

The Goon: Chinatown Hardcover
