The Goon by Dark Horse is starting to become one of my favorite comics to read. The Goon and his buddy Frankie always are a good read. They combine a story with a sense of humor that I enjoy. In Goon 40 this does not change and we get a short story of the Goon during the days of Prohibition.
The story begins with a nice redneck American telling us how the good old days have change. How teens use to go to the junkyard and build their cars. Now they just go down to the dealership and purchase a car and once it breaks they trade it in for the newest model. He leads us to the days of making your own whiskey and this leads us into the days of prohibition in Goons universe.
The story is a 3 part chapter. I enjoyed each one as they go on and the artwork was outstanding. The story tells about how Goon would make the best stuff in town and had the fastest car to get away from the cops. Which when you are the best and making the most money, we all know there will always be somebody trying to take your place.
This is where we meet the Boyle family. The comic shows the fight between the family and Goon. Will Goon be able to over come them? Can either of them survive the fight? How long can the town last in prohibition days? All of these questions are answered in the comic. It was a good read because the story was funny and interesting. I enjoyed the artwork, especially the last few pages. It was a trip to turn threw them.
