A spectacular introduction
I made a few comments to friends about how I never liked the Goon. At that time I had only read some short stories in anthologies. So, why did I get this? Well, it was only $12.50 on MailOrderComics.com and I really wanted to give the title a fair shake since it was one of my friends favorites. Turns out those short stories were too short for me to get a good sense of this title.
This collection of the "mythos" stories reordered to be chronological (original #1 & 2, Dark Horse #1, 3, 5 & 9) make for a great collection. This stuff is ludicrously funny. I don't know if we'll get another book like this, but I'll hold out hope before buying up the regular trades. So much good stuff in here.
