Check out The Goon!

03.14.2009

Goon

Eric Powell's great horror comic THE GOON is coming to some sort of life, thanks to producer David Fincher and a whole lot of computer animation.

AICN got the first snazzy hi-res images from the project (click above for better and more), which seems to perfectly capture the look and tone of the series (see below). The story revolves around a zombie-punching, monster-fighting mob enforcer and his mouthy sidekick, and their misadventures in a bizarre creature-filled town.

The CG is handled by animation/FX house Blur Studio, who've done work for various videogames, commercials and television projects -- Fincher worked with them (and frequent collaborator Brad Pitt) on a Softbank ad.

Looks like Grimm Fandango

It's not a bad sign at all that it has that 2-d put onto 3-d models look. I like that look, and welcome this change of pace.

"They should do Howard The Duck exactly like this...."

Actually I totally agree. That's a pretty underrated comic. I'm just happy The Goon is being milked for it's darkly comedic awesomery.

WHAT!?

Fan Fucking Tastic. I love these comics, and thought they'd never make a film out of this. But not only is it getting made, but prettily. And freakin' Fincher behind it? Epic!
