Goon Cover is a Class Act

Goon #19 Cover by Eric Powell

What I love about this cover for Goon #19 by Eric Powell is that it combines a very cartoony feel with a painterly technique that you might see in a classic pulp fuction magazine cover. It’s so rare to see a cover with so much humor that also features a great lighting technique at the same time. Although I have to admit that when I viewed the final cover Dark Horse had ruined it by putting a purple banner over the top of the artwork and used second rate typography to boot. But anyway the description of the book sounds interesting as well:

“The long winter of our discontent is over-feast your eyes on the return of Eric Powell and The Goon! That’s right, Powell has finally escaped Albatross’s basement and returned to the sweet, nurturing bosom of funny books. The regular ongoing series picks up right where it left off as the Zombie Priest’s sanity cracks up. His endless swarms of beastly little minions attack the Goon and Franky en masse, and there’s no telling how long the brand-new Norton’s Pub will last this time around!”
