A unique look at a unique creator--Here is the deliberate and painstaking process of becoming a world renowned (!) comic book creator as recalled by the artist and a few of his delinquent (!) friends. This extensive art book spotlights never-before-seen early drawings, superhero test pages, film poster art, and the establishment of Powell’s homegrown publishing house Albatross (Exploding) Funnybooks. And, of course, creation of The Goon, his signature work. It’s also very funny.

Celebrate an obscene number of years of low art and high art, failure and success, and the many other mistakes of multi-award winning writer and artist Eric Powell!

In Nashville, Tennessee lives a man, a recluse, a curmudgeonly highfalutin' cartoonist-type who, as a young child, had a penchant for drawing and making up tall tales. It was at the tender age of 18 he turned his back on a promising career in adult film cinematography and followed his heart into the unrewarding comic book industry. Out of desperation Eric kept drawing, painting, and then creating his own characters and worlds culminating with the beloved series, The Goon.
