Here comes The Goon!

Despite having been founded by someone in the movie biz, Dark Horse Comics hasn't had the best track record in Hollywood. On one end of the spectrum are the murky accomplishments of Sin City and Hellboy. At the other are Barb Wire and Dr. Giggles.

So I wish them luck with the animated version of The Goon. I'm not sure that Eric Powell's visual style lends itself well to the current fashions of 3D computer animation (his style calls back to guys like Walt Disney and Vaughn Bode) but I wish them well. I'll certainly be in line opening weekend for this film ... assuming it gets an opening weekend (unlike The Haunted World of El Superbeasto.)

The first video from The Goon feature is below, courtesy of MTV.
