The Goon Vol. 3: Heaps Of Ruination
Eric Powell
Dark Horse Books
$12.95 US (Paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

It’s like something right out of the classic horror films of the past: The Goon vs. The Zombie Priest; The Goon in King Kong vs. Godzilla; The Goon vs. Hellboy; The Goon vs. The Vampire Princess.
OK, so maybe it’s a little more Abbot And Costello than Mary Shelley or Bram Stoker, but the fourth installment of The Goon (there was a Vol. 0) is definitely a classic.
With the same unrestrained sense of humour that has made this series a cult favourite, writer/artist Eric Powell takes the adventures of his zombie-hating, muscle-bound thug with a heart to new heights in Heaps Of Ruination.
From a confrontation with his nemesis the Zombie Priest to a startling metamorphosis into a giant ape and a sidesplitting encounter with Mike Mignola’s big-screen hero, Hellboy, Powell and The Goon provide a zombie-stompin’ vampire-whoopin’ giant-lizard-bashin’ good time.
