The Goon is a good example of how One Shots can fail. It tells a great stand alone story, but will be incomprehensible to folks that have never read the Goon before because they won't know who or what anyone is and what they are doing. It think it was a brilliant comic and some of the best Pantomime work I have seen outside of the introduction to The Hunter by Cooke, but it relies heavily on the reader being familiar with the work at large.
It was my first issue of The Goon and I had no trouble whatsoever following it. Unclench you snobby fuck.
