Since debuting in 1999, The Goon has won constant critical praise as well as a large and rabid fan base for creator Eric Powell. This beautiful Artist's Edition features Powell's Goon original graphic novel, Chinatown and the Mystery of Mr. Wicker, the opus that earned the writer/artist two Eisner Awards! Each page of this Artist's Edition was scanned under close supervision by Powell himself to ensure the finest reproduction possible of his delicate and stunning original art-many pages of which were in color washes and sepia tones as storytelling devices… which only adds to the beauty of the originals.
