After a 4 year hiatus, Eric Powell is bringing back The Goon, this time published by his own company Albatross Funnybooks. The stories will be written and drawn by Powell, with guest writers and artists added into the mix.

"Since I am now not just the creator of THE GOON but also the publisher, I need to make sure our readers get their GOON fix on a regular basis. To that end, we'll be bringing new creators on to the regular series for first time ever. You'll not only be getting GOON books written and drawn by me, but some written and drawn by some of the best talent in the industry! We will be making announcements in the months to come, but, boy, I can't wait to show off some of the art we have in the works!!! I think this artist might draw Goon and Franky better than me! And just wait until you hear who's writing a script for me to draw! It's one of the best daggum creators in the business, ya'll!"

For the character's 20th anniversary, Powell is planning a national signing tour, new collected editions of previously released Dark Horse Comics material, and limited edition tiki mugs.

Albatross Funnybooks also publishes titles including HillbillySpook House, 'Namwolf, and Galaktkon.

The Goon #1 is set to release Spring 2019.
