9.21: The Goon #14

Ah EP. One of my favorites. #14 isn't the best issue i've read, but the first (of 3) short stories in this issue is worth the cost of admission for sure (it's the only one drawn by Powell unfortunately, even though the guest artist, Niel Vokes, isn't really that bad). Creepy cool history lesson about the now infamous evil priest w/ no name, and how our oft-tortured-and-turmoiled Buzzard finds out the zombie lords dirty little secret, revealing an interesting tid-bit about the Goon along the way.

One of the other included shorts checks in on one of my favorite all time Goon characters "Lagarto Hombre". The big lizard-monster has lost his mind (due to missed doses of his meds) while Dr. Alloy is in prison (see previous issues), and untold local town carnage ensues...

B overall, A+ for the first short.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
