Eric is working with Creator/DavidFincher and the crew down at Blur Studios to turn the Goon into an animated feature film. A proof of concept preview [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKdrCbE4YRA came out]] around Comic-Con 2010. There was a [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/624061548/the-goon-movie-lets-kickstart-this-sucker successful Kickstarter campaign]] to raise funds for it. Although things seem to be going forward with [[{{Film/Deadpool}} Tim Miller]] now being involved, [[DevelopmentHell only time will tell if the film actually gets released]].

Added DiffLines:

** When the Arab first chases the Nameless Preacher down, he gouges out the Preacher's ''other'' eye.
** [[spoiler:The Preacher's familiar sacrifices one of his own eyes so his master can see again. When the Preacher rallies himself to stand against the coming of the Coven, he takes the cat's other eye by force, then kills and eats him for good measure.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Whilst Goon himself wouldn't hurt any kids, they still get hurt a lot in this series. In Greedy Gut's first appearance, he eats several children (offscreen), which renders hims fat and slow enough that the Unholy Little Bastards can evade him long enough to get saved by the Goon. Roscoe, the kid werewolf, gets his leg cut off when the Unholy Little Bastards make him chase a stick over a busy train track. And those are just some of the xamples.

''The Goon'' is Eric Powell's award-winning fantasy comic book series, published by Creator/DarkHorseComics. Goon, a musclebound former freak circus assistant, is the top enforcer of the secretive mob boss Labrazzio, and he is at war for the control of the city with the nameless Zombie Priest, who directs zombie hordes from his citadel at Lonely Street. Together with his loudmouthed sidekick Frankie, Goon battles zombies, robots, aliens and mad scientists. Mostly with his fists.

A GenreBusting epic of pitch-black humor, tragedy and utterly grotesque monsters getting punched in the face, any description pales in comparison to the real thing. ''The Goon'' is a comic where a vampire gets set on fire while being tied on the hood of a car zooming around the town. ''The Goon'' is a comic where a Wild West zombie hunter must eat the flesh of his prey. ''The Goon'' is a comic where the main character must blow up a burlesque but is diverted by a giant, violent transvestite.

* CrapsackWorld: Whilst it's eventually revealed that there's a genuine {{curse}} on the region where the Goon hangs out which is at least partially to blame, the Goon's world is ''seriously'' messed up. There's an evil necromancer running around who wants to cause a ZombieApocalypse, {{Mad Scientist}}s like Dr. Alloy running rampant, a "swine revolution" has made pork meat a hot commodity analogous to liquor during Prohibition, a crazed airforce of communist cephalopods wants to rule the world, hobos are gibberish-spouting cannibals, and basically all manner of murderers, maniacs and monsters thrive in the place. It's no wonder a brutal BadAss of a mob boss who won't put up with any of this crap comes off as heroic by comparison.

Added DiffLines:

* BigEater: GreedyGut, the Hobo god is this to a villainous degree, even eating his own Hobo worshippers at times.


Added DiffLines:

* CircusofFear: Brigadoon's Dreamland Carnival, a malicious parody of the classic 1930s film, Freaks, where deformed outcasts torment or murder normal people in assorted Carnival games. Even the Goon and Franky were disgusted by it.
