Dark Horse Comics To Publish THE GOON Library Editions

 

December 18– For 15 years Eric Powell’s THE GOON has been one of the most celebrated indie comic book series, beloved by fans and creators alike for its bold creativity, classic style and whiskey fueled humor. Next year, Dark Horse Comics will provide the high end, hardcover treatment the series deserves when they publish the THE GOON LIBRARY EDITION Volume One ($39.95; November 11, 2015) collecting The Goon: Rough Stuff (vol. 0), Nothin’ but Misery (vol. 1), My Murderous Childhood (vol. 2), Heaps of Ruination (vol. 3).

 

“Eric Powell is one of comics’ shining lights and The Goon is one of our industry’s greatest creations,” said Dark Horse Comics President & Publisher Mike Richardson. “I’ve had a blast reading his adventures over the years  and we’re thrilled that next year we’ll be celebrating the publication of fifty issues of his iconic character here at Dark Horse Comics.”

 

“Why publish Library Editions? Well, they’re bigger and heavier than the regular trades and they have hard covers. That means it will hurt more when you hit someone in the head with it.,” said THE GOON creator Eric Powell. “Plus, I wanna make bank bro. I need a Range Rover.”

 

“The new GOON series ONCE UPON A HARD TIME is a genuine game changer for the series. It’ll make February a VERY good month for THE GOON,” said Scott Allie, Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief. “Eric’s paying off things that have been in place since the very beginning, so it’s the perfect time for a deluxe hardcover edition of the early stories, both for Powell fanatics and casual readers who will want to see what all the buzz is about and where all the madness started.”

 

ABOUT THE GOON: LIBRARY EDITION Volume One: Lonely Street comes under all manner of threats both tragic and hilarious in this deluxe hardcover edition of The Goon. The Nameless Man, the Zombie Priest, has come to town to build a gang from the undead. Yet even with an unlimited supply of soldiers, the Priest cannot move in on the territory controlled by the crime boss Labrizio and his unstoppable enforcer—the Goon. But when the Priest discovers Goon’s most closely held secret the balance of power threatens to change forever! Collects The Goon volumes 0-3.

 

“A wild ride filled with imagination, intrigue, horror and laughs.”—Ain’t It Cool News

“The Goon is old-school cool—a great, gurgling gumbo of EC Comics horror, Monty Python wit, and 1930s pulp.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A true American original—a delirious medley of strange characters, stranger creatures, wild-ass (and often truly creepy) storytelling, art so excellent and perfectly matched to the tone of his stories as to be flabbergasting, and writing so hilarious that it sometimes comes close to making me pee my pants.”—Frank Darabont, director

“The product of a contentedly demented mind.”—Comic Book Resources

“The Goon has earned [Powell] a seat at the table with Kirby, Eisner, Chester Gould, Hal Foster and Al Feldstein.”—Joe Hill (Locke & Key)

“Eric Powell’s great series The Goon deftly combines lowbrow humor with unexpected emotional depth in its ongoing story of a big, not-so-dumb guy who does battle with zombies in a town seemingly dreamt up by Tom Waits.”—The A.V. Club

“Eric Powell has created a sharp, witty little monster comic with a very interesting mystery at its heart. And Eric can draw as well as anyone in the business. When zombies are overrunning the city, there’s only one man tough enough to keep the undead in line: Eric Powell’s THE GOON.”—Jeff Smith (creator of Bone)

“Every panel [is] gorgeously detailed, like a Max Fleischer cartoon if Cthulhu spat some sort of hellish bile all over it.”—IGN

“There’s a certain joy knowing that a cartoonist of great skill is filling his or her own comic with the elements they love . . . The appeal is how Powell conveys that enthusiasm by drawing every creature and monster so darned well.”—Publishers Weekly

“If this is your first time [reading The Goon], you are in for a treat—if not, you already know how lucky you are.”—David Fincher, director

“Tremendously entertaining . . . a highly enjoyable blend of pulp horror and slapstick comedy.”—Fangoria

“Bursts with fisticuffs, gore, bad attitude and running character gags . . . Prime ghastly fun.”—Booklist

“A comic for readers who like a generous helping of comedy with their hordes of zombies.”—New York Daily News

“Comicdom’s new hero is a fighting machine with a curious affinity for kicking serious ghoul butt. We hear the Hulk’s green with envy.”—Entertainment Weekly

DARK HORSE TO PUBLISH THE ORDER OF THE FORGE—THE UNTOLD TALE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON!
from Bill, December 18th, 2014 9:53 pm, comic book

A historical fiction genre smash-up!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—In spring 2015, creator and producer Donn D. Berdahl of Bronco Donn Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics, in association with Home Plate Entertainment, will present a tale left out of the history books. Set in 1753, this comic shows a young George Washington who ain’t your schoolteacher’s George Washington; this is The Order of the Forge!

Victor Gischler (Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth, Wolverine: Revolver, Angel & Faith) writes a three-issue miniseries that will surprise and shock scholars everywhere. Based on an original concept from Donn D. Berdahl and a treatment by well-known British author Andy Briggs, The Order of the Forge has “humor, vulgarity, and at times brutality,” according to Comic Bastards. This series is a must-read for fans of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and all other historical fiction works!

Before he fathered a nation, young George Washington forged his legend in blood! Before he fought for his country, he killed for the king! Imbued with the mystical powers of America’s original inhabitants, George and his superpowered axe—along with his friends, a debauched, middle-aged Ben Franklin and a young, rebellious Paul Revere—must stop an evil colonial governor who wishes to rule an empire!

“Dark and filled with seething rage, this George will shatter the image of the white-haired father of a nation!” stated Berdahl. Publisher Mike Richardson, founder of Dark Horse, said, “This is one of those great changeups that challenge our notions of a widely accepted historical figure and pose a ‘what if’ in an entertaining manner.”

Praise for Victor Gischler:

“Part Christopher Moore, part Quentin Tarantino, Victor Gischler is a raving, badass genius.”—James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of Map of Bones and Black Order

“Gischler does an awesome job of grabbing my attention. The way that he adds so much intensity and drama through dialogue is a real treat.”—Unleash the Fanboy

The Forge #1 is on sale April 29, 2015.

DARK HORSE COLLECTS SEBELA & MOUSTAFA’S ‘HIGH CRIMES
from Bill, December 6th, 2014 4:23 pm, Comic Book News

A high-altitude noir!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—Debuting in print for the first time, High Crimes, a murder mystery written by Dead Letters scribe Christopher Sebela, is the premiere graphic novel illustrated by rising star Ibrahim Moustafa!

Dark Horse will publish a stunning hardcover that collects all twelve issues of the critically acclaimed, multiple Eisner Award–nominated, and Stumptown Comics Art Award–winning Monkeybrain digital comic by Sebela (Captain Marvel, Alien vs. Predator) and Moustafa (The Pound: Ghouls Night Out). New York Times best-selling author Chelsea Cain calls High Crimes “the perfect thriller.” And Matt Fraction, the Eisner Award–winning writer of Sex Criminals, says, “Instead of just yelling at people to read High Crimes, now I can throw it at them at the same time.”

Disgraced Olympic snowboarder Zan Jensen has relocated to Kathmandu as a climbing guide, while running a sideline business as a high-altitude grave robber. When a body is found at the summit of Everest with a treasure of state secrets under its skin, Zan finds herself in the crosshairs of a government hit squad bent on bringing the body home. As she races to the roof of the world, Zan will navigate bullets and avalanches to find salvation in the deadliest place on earth.

The High Crimes hardcover goes on sale July 8, 2015! Preorder your copy today!
Praise for High Crimes:

“It’s a high concept executed with precision, delivering real-world intrigue.”—The Onion’s A.V. Club

“Every once in a while you come across a comic that comes out of nowhere. That just reaches up and says, ‘Holy crap, you need to pay attention to this book and its creators.’ So far, in 2013, that list has one name on it and it’s High Crimes.”—Multiversity

High Crimes might be the best thriller in comics today.”—Newsarama

“Solid characters matched to a top location twisted with a fantastic narrative hook. Not one element of this book is left to rest on its laurels. Sebela and Moustafa ensure everything has a deceptive shadow or drastic turn in it. You can’t predict where this book will go.”—Comic Book Resources
