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]].

* AllMythsAreTrue: There are [[OurVampiresAreDifferent multiple]] [[YourVampiresSuck types]] of vampires, zombies, ghouls, {{Kaiju}}... [[spoiler:and the nameless priest is Rumpelstiltskin.]]



* FantasyKitchenSink: For a book having zombies, sea monsters, a talking spider, Cockney-sounding demons, kaiju, mad scientists, vampires, werewolves, cannibalistic hobos, aerodynamic octopi and a man who feasts on the flesh of the dead, you could say the Goon uses this trope.

* DevelopmentHell: The teaser for the film was compiled in an effort to get funding for a full feature. Despite the internet generally agreeing that it's pretty damn awesome, they still don't have any yet. Eric Powell/Dark Horse and their fans are crossing their fingers, though and the [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/624061548/the-goon-movie-lets-kickstart-this-sucker Kickstarter]] to help fund a story reel to ship around to studios just might help.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Hey [[SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Lex Luthor]], don'cha have any of them high-tech gadgets to bust slackjaws with instead of just punchin' 'em? Eventually it may get to the point where [[{{Film/Highlander}} there is only one]] and you'll have to either get a job [[TheShawshankRedemption as a prison guard]] or else [[SpongebobSquarepants open a burger joint.]]
** And Frankie will have another round but [[{{Sideways}} HE'S NOT DRINKING ANY FUCKING MERLOT!!!!]]

* BittersweetEnding: Issue 53, the end of "Once Upon a Hard Time" (which Powell himself calls a series finale) wraps up threads from the very beginning of the series. [[spoiler: The Goon finally kills the rest of the Nameless Man's coven (including the Nameless Man himself). Through an act of compassion, he manages to avoid the damnation and death that have been hounding him throughout the miniseries, and even finds a way to break (or at least weaken) the curse surrounding the town. However, the Goon is clearly burned out by recent events, and leaves the town with Frankie in tow, possibly forever. Although he finds happiness for the first time in a very long while working at the circus he grew up at, the ending and epilogue make it clear this will not last.]]
