Review: The Goon: Those That Is Damned

Man do I love having a new Goon collection this soon after the previous volume.  

This book continues the Return of Labrazio story arc in admirable fashion.  These issues are a large departure for the series, featuring almost no humor at all.  Instead the Goon is forced to accept an unhappy future as his allies begin to fall

But the book does contain a few short pieces by a number of guest creators to help offset the sense of dread from the main story.  Kyle Hotz comes up with a story featuring a shaved ape disguised as a teacher, Rebecca Sugar checks in with Dr Alloy in prison, and a group of comic luminaries collaborate on a parody of the Maltese Falcon.  There’s also a few brilliant pages from the great Gris Grimly as an added treat.
