Holy ****, what a disappointment.
Uh...... what?! I thought it really took the Goon up to the next level, and actually gave some heft and substance to the character... sure, it wasn't the carefree wackyness we're used to, but it was still extremely entertaining, and for my money- the best Goon story yet.
What you call heft and substance, I call selling out. The Goon has always had heft and substance. The Goon has NEVER been carefree. It has always been a heavy, dark-humor book. Yet with Chinatown you could go ten pages without so much as a goofy comment. This just was not a Goon story. If he returns to the ongoing series ever, I pray that he returns to the kinds of stories which made The Goon unique and fun.
