The Goon is 10 years old

I love The Goon. A great comic. Funny, clever, stupid, fights, zombies, squids, bowling balls, gangsters, it's got it all. Now MTV have this cool video for The Goon's tenth anniversary.
Way back in March 1999, the first issue of Eric Powell’s quirky horror-noir series “The Goon” landed on comics shop shelves. A full decade later, Powell’s musclebound protagonist and a cast of other bizarre characters continue their zombie-smashing, eye-stabbing adventures in a special 10th Anniversary issue headed to comic shops this week, and production continues on a CG-animated “The Goon” movie, produced by “Fight Club” director David Fincher.

In order to commemorate a decade of “The Goon” (and the upcoming film based on the character), Dark Horse Comics has provided Splash Page with an exclusive video introduction to the series’ cast of characters, narrated by Powell himself.

Certainly hope Fincher goes for this. One of the more exciting prospects for him.
