Writer/artist Eric Powell presents a spinoff of his Eisner Award winning title, The Goon, in the graphic novella The Lords of Misery. Bridging the gap between Once Upon a Hard Time and A Ragged Return to Lonely Street, this stand alone story reveals the adventure the Goon (along with several other mysterious figures) found himself entangled in after he departed the Nameless Town.
The Lords of Misery… a mysterious organization made up (unwillingly) by history’s most notorious dregs. Through the ages they have battled an enigmatic and unstoppable force. A being whose evil makes the Lord’s crimes look downright petty in comparison. Always it returns after a long hibernation. And always the Lords have died trying to thwart it. But if generations of Lords haven’t been able to stop it, what chance does the Goon and this current incarnation have?
