The Good creator Eric Powell has announced that he may be done with the character and will move onto other projects…
On an AMA with REDDIT yesterday he said: “Once Upon a Hard Time (his latest book – see below) is the climax to everything I’ve done in the Goon so far. In fact, it may be the last story entitled “the Goon” I ever do. The mythology I’ve created will keep going. But I’m creating new characters to interact with the old ones, shifting barely used characters to the limelight, and putting everyone in different environments. The next mini-series I do involving this mythology will have a different title and will feature a large cast of characters including several who survive the last Goon series.”
How would you feel about this? If he steps down would you want it continued in others’ hands?
The Goon: Once Upon A Time
After the tragic events of Occasion of Revenge, the witch coven believes that control of the unnamed town will soon be in their grasp and the Goon’s tragic soul will contribute to the curse that increases their power. But has their plot destroyed the Goon or created a monster too savage for them to withstand?
Once upon a Hard Time is a climactic miniseries that has major consequences for the Goon and his supporting cast. If you’re a Goon fan, you can’t miss this.
The Goon: Once Upon A Time goes on sale from Dark Horse in February
