Eric Powell Looks To Expand ‘The Goon’ Universe This Fall

buzzardEric Powell has been a busy man as of late. Last week it was announced that his amazingly awesome epic The Goon had gone digital and now MTV has debuted the first look at Powell’s new Goon spin-off miniseries Buzzard.

Buzzard will be a three-issue miniseries set in The Goon‘s universe that focuses on a former sheriff who now craves flesh! But not the kind of flesh you may assume. The Buzzard man was originally the sheriff of a town where all the inhabitants went all George Romero on him and started craving brain pancakes for breakfast. Buzzard himself was spared of the Left 4 Dead syndrome until he meets a mysterious Priest, who cast upon him a spell that intended to turn the sheriff into a zombie but instead achieved quite the opposite: a near-immortal man who must consume the flesh of the dead.

Powell talked to MTV News about the characters origins…

“When I originally created Buzzard, he was intended to be a standalone character outside of ‘The Goon, but in the theme of keeping everything in ‘The Goon’ universe, I decided to throw him in there — and then the idea came to me. What is Buzzard? How did this happen to him? I had a different origin story for him, and then I thought, ‘What if the Zombie Priest made him what he is?’ And then it all just kind of clicked. I thought, ‘This is perfect — I can throw this Old West character into this noir monster world.”

The series is going to pick up right after Buzzard’s climactic showdown with the evil Zombie Priest, and will find the cursed hero wandering into a village terrorized by the walking dead.

“He’s always been one of my favorite characters from ‘The Goon,’ And I think he’s one of the fans’ favorites as well. I’m constantly being asked if I’ll make a Buzzard series or spin-off, and I’m finally getting around to it.”

More zombie goodness is never a bad thing when Eric Powell is involved.

Powell’s all-new Buzzard series hits shelves this Fall and I, for one, cannot wait!
