The Goon: A Bunch of Old Crap Omnibus Volume 1 Announced

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (April 22, 2024)— Dark Horse Books presents The Goon: A Bunch of Old Crap Omnibus Volume 1, now published under Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks imprint. Written and illustrated by Powell (The Goon, Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?), this first omnibus volume of the award-winning crime pulp series combines horror, crime, and a twisted sense of humor and includes three short forewords by Powell and a sketchbook section. It will be available November 2024.

On Lonely Street, crime is cheap but justice comes at a price, so the Goon and his sidekick Franky defend the neighborhood against crime lords and supernatural ne’er-do-wells alike to keep the neighborhood safe.

The Nameless Man, the Zombie Priest, has come to town to build a gang from the undead. The Goon is the only man brave enough to stand up to him, and even the undead fear the Goon! The Goon: Bunch of Old Crap Volume 1 collects the first four books of The Goon, featuring his misadventures on Lonely Street and the childhood story of how a boy born into a circus family became protector of the neighborhood. Collects The Goon: Rough Stuff, The Goon: Nothing But Misery, The Goon: My Murderous Childhood, and The Goon: Heaps of Ruination.


The Goon: A Bunch of Old Crap Omnibus Volume 1 (496 pages, 10.1875” x 6.625”) will be available in bookstores on November 5, 2024 and in comic shops on November 6, 2024. It is now available to pre-order at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your local comic shop and bookstore for $34.99.
