New Poster & Pics of The Goon Comic Adaptation

Here's the first look at the David Fincher-produced big screen computer animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s Dark Horse comic book The Goon. Plus an interview with Eric Powell.

The comic follows the adventures of a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for a feared mobster. The stories have a paranormal and comedic edge to them and concern ghosts, zombies, mad scientists and "skunk apes."

With plenty of source material to choose from in the Goon cannon — from the Eisner Award-winning “The Goon: Chinatown” original graphic novel to the controversial “Satan’s Sodomy Baby” one-shot — Powell noted the need for compromise in crafting a cohesive Goon script.

“Obviously the comic is not set up where you can do a direct adaptation,” Powell told MTV News. “The issues are too episodic, and it’s basically a bunch of individual stories that link to a bigger story. So we’re having to take the gist of ‘The Goon’ and condense it into a format that works as a film.”

It’s too early to know which of The Goon’s specific tales might be included in the film, but Powell told MTV that any restructuring of the final stories wouldn’t result in re-imagined characters, and that any plot modifications would merely serve the screenplay.

“There are a few little changes we’re throwing in here and there just to make it work as a film, but we’re not overhauling it or turning it upside down just for the sake of being different or turning it into a movie,” said Powell.

Ain't-It-Cool-News has posted new photos from The Goon, the David Fincher(Fight Club)-produced, CG-animated adaptation of Eric Powell's Dark Horse comic book.
