If you’ve never picked up “The Goon” for a solid Sunday read, you should head to the local comic book store (the one where the owner won’t let you thumb through the pages because it makes them “used”) and pick up the entire series immediately. Actually, volumes 0-3 should be enough for now, but make sure the gas tank is full because you’ll be heading back to the store soon.
There’s zombies and skunk-apes and it’s fantastic.
News of a film featuring the beloved characters has been around for quite some time, but a very cool teaser trailer made especially for Comic-Con is the first solid proof (beyond a few pieces of concept art) that the film is barreling its way down throats and out back ends. It will be soon enough.
Grab a slice of pie and check out the footage:
Beautiful. It brings a tear to the eye.
David Fincher is producing with Blur Studio, the script is from creator Eric Powell, Clancy Brown (the asshole guard from Shawshank Redemption) is voicing The Goon, and Paul Giamatti is voicing his pal Franky.
More exciting details should emerge at Comic-Con, so stay tuned.
