Review: The Goon #5

GOON #5

Yes, The Goon #5 is out before The Goon #4. But, one of the fantastic things about the series is you can enjoy each issue on its own! The gangs that have sprung up on Lonely Street in his absence continue to give The Goon fits, and now the drunken reprobates have started drinking something called Beezlebooze with monstrous effects! And who is the mysterious crime figure called Dapper calling the shots from the shadows?

The Goon #5 keeps the streak going for the series deliver excellence. This issue, like these before, delivers action, humor, and a visually unique style. Written by Eric Powell and Thomas Sniegos, the comic has so much packed into every panel and page.

The issue is a standalone issue, like the previous three. It can be enjoyed on its own and each issue has been building to something down the road. It’s a brilliant way of giving regular readers something more but also being new reader friendly.

The writing is as fun as always but the art by Brett Parson is fantastic. Each panel and page is packed with so much humor derived from what’s presented visually. There are small jokes here and there in the background keeping the reader on their toes. The style too is beyond unique making the series stand out visually.

The issue is the fun I expected and the series as a whole is one that should be a part of everyone’s buy pile. If you missed the previous three issues, you can start here, but be prepared to want to go back and grab everything that has come out before it.
