The Goon kicks off a new story arc with this issue, wherein a mad scientist and uneasy ally of the Goon, Dr. Hieronymous Alloy, begins to break down literally. His metallic skin is beginning to oxidize, and unless an element can be found to reverse the process, Alloy will most certainly rust over and die. As the doctor isolates the problem, it becomes apparent that the element he seeks cannot be found on this world. His only chance is to send an unsuspecting Goon and Franky to a parallel universe to find the key to his recovery. Goon and Franky must fight an absurd array of strange and otherworldly monsters from out of space and time in classic Wally Wood tradition. Written and drawn by Eisner Award“winning creator Eric Powell, with stunning painted covers, The Goon is not to be missed.
