Official Press Release
On March, Friday the 13th, an event commemorating the 10th anniversary of Eric Powell’s acclaimed comic book series, The Goon, will be held at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville Tennessee. Published by Dark Horse Comics, The Goon is the winner of The 2004 International Horror Guild award for Best Illustrated Narrative and is a recipient of five Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. The highest recognition bestowed in the industry; the equivalent of a comic book Oscar. With an established diehard cult following as a comic, the Goon now prepares to move into the world of film after being optioned by Academy Award nominated director and producer David Fincher (Benjamin Button, Fight Club, Zodiac) and Academy Award nominated Blur Studio to develop as a CG animated feature film with Dark Horse Entertainment.
The Goon anniversary show will feature performances by The Protomen, Ghoultown, Calabrese, as well as Roxi Dlite, Ruby Rocket, Miss Lolly Pop, Lux-O-Matic, Monique Honeybush, and Sadie Twist. Also in attendance will be The Nashville Rollergirls, Tony Moore (co-creator of The Walking Dead and artist of Fear Agent), and Eric Powell will be there for signings and to make a special announcement about his next Goon project slated for this summer. A project surely to be the most bizarre and unexpected yet in the Goon mythology. Party goers will also be able to pick up exclusive merchandise found nowhere else! Including a limited edition 10th Anniversary Goon comic book and a print from the legendary Nashville based Hatchshow Print Company. The doors of this 18+ show at the Cannery Ballroom open at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Tickets are only $10.
