Buzzard, Comic Dark Horse

Next Wednesday, Dark Horse Comics spins off The Goon with Buzzard #1 from writer/artist Eric Powell. In the series, Buzzard is lost and confused following his confrontation with Zombie Priest (in “Goon Year”), and wanders into the shadowy spirit realm of the forest. Here he comes face to face with a race of savages who have been hunting local villagers.

The issue features a back-up story, “Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities”, which revives the 2005 series by Powell and artist Kyle Hotz, and marches towards September’s three issue series focusing on the Kid.

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the art in the above cover/page. It has a clean yet surreal style, which is perfect for a character that is as lost as Buzzard is. Will you be checking out the new series? Do you follow The Goon? Amazon sells a ton of trades for The Goon, you can check them out at these links…
