¡LA DIABLA! ROLLERDERBY FROM POWELL & GRAPHITTI DESIGNS!



Artist Eric Powell, long time derby supporter and creator of the hit comic book series THE GOON, is producing a line of Rollerderby merchandise entitled ¡LA DIABLA!

“I had years of derby related art laying around and the idea of rebranding it under a single fictitious team to release to the public came to mind. But as the concept rolled around in my head, I started coming up with new designs. I’ve got a lot of fun ideas related to these evil Latin ladies!” –Eric Powell

For the first in the line, Eric will be teaming with GraphittiDesigns, known for their pop-culture and super hero t-shirts and merchandise, in the release of this Dia De Los Muertos logo shirt! 


More apparel and specialty merch announcements coming soon as well as exclusives to be available at this years San Diego Comic-Con.


If you are a liscensor interested in producing ¡La Diabla! material, or an apparel, comic shop, or skate shop retailer interested in carrying ¡La Diabla! product, please contact Rachel at rachel@thegoon.com

Goon Goes to Mini-Series Format


I had very ambitious plans for the Goon publishing schedule at the beginning of 2012. Unfortunately, life happens sometimes. Between selling a home, buying a home, and taking a little needed me time, my schedule got a little out of control.

My apologies to all of you who have been patiently waiting for Goon #44.  It is being resolicited and will be appearing in the catalog soon.

However, this situation has brought to light how confusing our semi-ongoing series is to readers. Although we were monthly for a year once for the Labrazio storyline, the book has always tried to maintain a bi-monthly schedule. But since the Goon is pretty much a one man show, that wasn’t always possible to sustain. I loved the idea of having an ongoing series and getting up into some high number issues, but I would prefer that the release schedule of the book be less confusing for you guys.

So… after issue #44, The Goon will be switching to a mini-series format with one shots sprinkled in. Much like many of Dark Horse’s other titles.

The first two miniseries to come out will actually tell one long, eight-issue story. OCCASION OF REVENGE BOOKS 1 & 2 will focus on a gang war between the Goon and the new invading clan of witches composed of what is left of the Zombie Priest’s race. If you’ve liked the more gritty and noirish episodes of the Goon, like Chintaown & the Mystery of Mr. Wicker, this will be right up your alley.

I hope you’re as excited as I am about this next chapter of the Goon!

-Eric
